Compiling ultravnc 1.0.9.x on Visual Studio 2008

Just in case somebody has troubles compiling the project here is what I've done:

1) Install NASM from

2) Add NASM to your path by opening Visual Studio Command prompt and execute Code:

path = %PATH%;<path_to_nasm_install_dir>

3) Open ./zlib-1.2.5/contrib/vstudio/vc9/zlibstat.vcproj in a text editor.
3.1) Change every line stating Code:

InheritedPropertySheets="C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\VCProjectDefaults\UpgradeFromVC70.vsprops"

to Code:


4) Open ./winvnc/winvnc2008.sln in VisualStudio 2008

4.1) Open Properties for zlibstat project.

4.2) Browse to Configuration Properties->C/C++->Preprocesor and in the preprocesor defines remove ZLIB_WINAPI

This way I got it to compile under Visual Studio 2008.
