Compiling library from source
  • This page is for Windows based systems only. Mono instructions will be added later when supported

Requires
  • .NET Framework 2.0 or later
  • Visual Studio 2012 (recommended) or later
  • GIT client (TortoiseGIT and Git for Windows are recommended)

NOTE: This project is currently built against version 2.0 of .NET Framework, but can be compiled against any version starting from 2.0 up to 4.5.

After installing Visual Studio, you will need to get the latest source code from Codeplex, wich is stored using GIT source control. To do that, you need to download and install a GIT client. We recommend TortoiseGIT, wich is a shell interface to Git for Windows.

You can download them by following these links:
TortoiseGIT
Git for Windows

Once installed, proceed to the Source Code tab, and click on Clone to get the URL that will be used to copy the latest source code locally on your disk. Copy the url provided by Codeplex

Cloning Arphoon with TortoiseGIT
First create a new folder anywhere on your disk and name it "Arphoon Package Manager GIT". Then, right-click on the newly created folder and select "Git clone...".

NOTE: If the option "Git clone..." does not appear on the context menu, check that TortoiseGIT is correctly installed, and try to restart the explorer Window. If that does not help, try to restart your system

On the GIT Clone box that appears, paste the project's GIT url you got from the Source Code tab and click OK.

Compiling on Visual Studio 2012
Once downloaded, open the project's main solution file on Visual Studio by clicking on "ArphoonSuite.sln" file from within windows explorer, or choose "File >> Open" from Visual Studio.

WARNING: Currently, some projects are not available to the public because they depends on third party libraries and tools not developed by me. Im requesting authorization from the developer of those tools, to make them public along with the remaining projects wich depends on them. If a dialog appears on Visual studio while opening the solution, saying that some projects could not be loaded correctly, Press "OK" and dismiss it. It will not affect compilation results

Now proceed to selecting the desired release type and processor architecture. For debugging we recommend Debug x86 since it have support for Edit & continue feature in Visual Studio. For production, use Release AnyCpu. Those options can be selected when clicking on Build > Configuration Manager.

Now proceed to compiling by clicking Build > Rebuild Solution.

When done, navigate to the directory you created for the GIT repository, and you will find a new folder named "bin". The compilation results will be there under the selected configuration and processor architecture.

IMPORTANT NOTE
All projects in the solution, will build by default to the common directory located at ".\bin" on the GIT root repository.
