Hi all,
I've been translating the latest resource file from English to Spanish. For this, I downloaded the latest resource pack which is for version 4.24.
I'm doing this under a windows xp 32 bit machine, but I'm having the problem where I can't compile to test the project. I download visual c++ express 2008, and when I try to compile it says I need a file called afxres.h. A bit of researching says it's part of mfc and it only installs in 64 bit machines, and it told me to use winres.h instead. I tried that, but it still asks for afxres.h.
Any hints?
Thanks :)

MUSHclient is compiled under MFC and the Express version of Visual Studio does not include that.

The resources part doesn't use much of MFC, I would have thought you could work around that, or just (somehow) edit the resource DLL itself to localize it.

However MFC itself is definitely for 32-bit machines, I have been using it for the last 15 years and I don't think I even have a 64-bit processor.

Hmm naw, editing the dll's would probably be too much work. I'd have to translate it twice, once for en.dll and another for en_small.dll.
Besides the dialog editor I was using, called resource hacker is not accessible to reader because it displays the dialog in some sort of visual format.
So I'm probably just going to go and grab vcs pro somewhere.
