BOINC Dependencies on Windows

BOINC uses a number of third party libraries to handle things like communicating through proxies and SSL support. Building these libraries with support for debugging can be tricky.

A number of dependency trees have been created for Visual Studio:

2005: boinc_depends_win_vs2005
2008: boinc_depends_win_vs2008
2010: boinc_depends_win_vs2010
2010: boinc_depends_win_vs2013

These will need to be updated whenever new third party libraries need to be used or the Microsoft C-Runtime library has been updated.

Building Updated Dependency Libraries

As of VS 2013 our libraries should be configured with the following settings for all builds.

Compiler Settings:

  • Debug Information Format: Program Database (/Zi)
  • Runtime Library: Multi-threaded DLL (/MD)

Linker Settings:

  • Generated Debug Info: Yes (/DEBUG)
  • Set Checksum: Yes (/RELEASE)

These settings enable the use of the correct C-Runtime library for BOINC and the ability for a debugger to correctly load the right symbol file for a given executable or DLL from BOINC's symbol store.

BOINC builds with four configurations:

  • Debug/x86
  • Release/x86
  • Debug/x64
  • Release/x64

Each library will need to have an updated binary and symbol file for each configuration.

zLib

Project URL: http://www.zlib.net/

zLib keeps its Visual Studio project files under 'contrib/vstudio/vc11'. Upgrade the project files to VS 2013.

Build all four configurations and copy the dll, lib, and pdb file to the root of the zlib source directory so that libcurl can find it later.
