Dear Chris,

Many thanks for investigating and sharing.
Yes, we are aware that the git master is not working with Visual Studio. As of now it was only working for Mingw and we had no time to investigate further.

I will have a look into your files and report asap.

Many thanks again,
Best regards,
Jb Ch

As the title says...

I've enclosed a patch that allows CERTI to at least compile on Windows using Visual Studio 2017. Haven't had a chance to run it yet, but wanted to get this out here in case someone needs it now.

Will created other issues are problems with running are found.

The problems I ran into are in the enclosed Problems.txt and reproduced here for completion:

Issues Found:
Compiling RTI (and others):
1> d:\externalprojects\cert.git-clone\libcerti\strongtype.hh(191): error C2512: 'std::is_reference<_Dx2>': no appropriate default constructor
Not sure what the problem is, but commenting out constructor for NamedTypeImpl template removes the error.

1> socketpair_win32.c
1> c:\program files (x86)\windows kits\10\include\10.0.17134.0\shared\ws2def.h(103): warning C4005: 'AF_IPX': macro redefinition
1> c:\program files (x86)\windows kits\10\include\10.0.17134.0\um\winsock.h(457): note: see previous definition of 'AF_IPX'
1> c:\program files (x86)\windows kits\10\include\10.0.17134.0\shared\ws2def.h(147): warning C4005: 'AF_MAX': macro redefinition
1> c:\program files (x86)\windows kits\10\include\10.0.17134.0\shared\ws2def.h(235): error C2011: 'sockaddr': 'struct' type redefinition

These are due to winsock.h being included before winsock2.h.

4> d:\externalprojects\cert.git-clone\rtig\federation.cc(141): error C2668: 'make_unique': ambiguous call to overloaded function
4> d:\externalprojects\cert.git-clone\include\make_unique.hh(13): note: could be 'std::unique_ptr<certi::SecurityServer,std::default_delete<_Ty>> make_unique<certi::SecurityServer,certi::SocketServer&,certi::AuditFile&,certi::FederationHandle&>(certi::SocketServer &,certi::AuditFile &,certi::FederationHandle &)'
4> with

4> ]
4> d:\externalprojects\cert.git-clone\rtig\federation.cc(141): note: while trying to match the argument list '(certi::SocketServer, certi::AuditFile, certi::FederationHandle)'

Memory.h in Visual Studio since VS2013 now includes make_unique.

2> d:\externalprojects\cert.git-clone\rtig\mom.cc(235): error C2146: syntax error: missing ')' before identifier 'or'
2> d:\externalprojects\cert.git-clone\rtig\mom.cc(235): error C2065: 'or': undeclared identifier

This really isn't standard C++. Changed to use || for or and ! for not.

Packages are created as CERTI-4.0.0--MSVC-Unknown-1915.
scripts/SystemSpecificInformations.cmake was updated to reflect newer compiler versions and operating systems.
