Import workspace from Visual Studio .sln and .vcproj files

Post by jhughes » Wed Jun 09, 2010 4:37 am

Hi! I'm very interested in using Zeus. Visual Studio has done away with Brief emulation and time marches on--I need to use the new compilers, but am not interested in using the editor part any longer.

A major obstacle to my adoption of Zeus is the lack of direct import (continuous synchronization would be ideal) of Visual Studio files. VS2005 and VS2008 uses a single .sln file that refers to several .vcproj files. They're in XML format and would be relatively simple to parse to convert to a workspace of folders and files. I don't know what VS2010 uses... maybe MSBuild or .vcproj or both?

Anyway, I would love to see this as a feature. It would make the choice to use Zeus ever so much easier.

You can import VS2005 and VS2008 solution files using the Workspace, Import menu.

Once the solution has been imported the Zeus compiler and build menus should just fine.

The import also takes over the SCC source control settings so the source control menus should also work ;)
(continuous synchronization would be ideal) of Visual Studio files.
At this stage there is no synchronization but it does not take much to re-import the file ;)

Already done ;)

Make sure you are using the latest version: http://www.zeusedit.com/download.html

Further on this topic, to make sure the MSVC environment is correctly configured use this trick: http://www.zeusedit.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2707

The latest Zeus version will import the solution file to create a Zeus workspace and whenever that workspace is re-opened Zeus will automatically re-import the solution file if the MSVC solution is found to have changed.

The import process also takes in the compiler options so in most cases the imported solution will also compile and build inside of Zeus.

Cheers Jussi
