Visual studio standalone is working. The jDE busbuild tool is failing to build the bsfn because it cannot find the right compiler. I know that JDE needs the correct VS version installed for that to work.
What I meant by building in visual studio completely is that, if there is way by creating a custom makefile?? and pointing it to the installed compiler as the busbuild tool creates automatically.
In past I had read about an article of creating such a make file project in VS and using the VS build functionality to link the bsfn to the CCUSTOM dll and the required objects. Unfortunately I cannot find that article.
