Re: How to convert Visual 5 to Visual 6 dsw/dsp project files?

Hi Mikael,

I think the problem is not the conversion from VC++ 5.0 to VC++ 6.0. I
encountered the same issue when I was trying to compile openldap. It seems
that the unzipping process is the one that causes this problem.

Have you looked over http://www.fivesight.com/downloads/openldap.asp  ?

One of the questions is:
  1.. I downloaded source code from the OpenLDAP site, but VisualStudio
complains about the project files; what should I do? This is probably a
symptom of Unix linebreaks versus Windows linebreaks; the best solution is
to be sure you unpack the archive with a tool (like WinZip) that understands
linebreaks in text files. Or, you could do some quick Perl programming.

Hope this helps,
