Before the story, I’d like to say Happy Chinese New Year to you all, and wish you a great year of 2015.
It was about compiling latest source code of WebRTC (NOT A TECH TIP). Here we go.
Got a copy of latest version of WebRTC’s source code from a colleague before the Chinese New Year, so I planned myself to setup an environment for compiling and programming for the latest source code of WebRTC during the long vacation.
It has been almost one and a half year since the last research into WebRTC.
Tried to visit the official website of WebRTC(http://www.webrtc.org), but failed to access due to the f**ked GFW.
According to the description from my colleague who gave me the copy of the source code, it recommends x64 OS + VS2013, hence it’s big change for me, because my current working environment is Win7 x86 + VS2008.
To enhance my decision of going back to WebRTC research, I bought myself an 8G slice ram for my notebook(A perfect excuse of upgrading the hardware, XDXD).
I started it from re-installing my OS.
x64? OK, let’s go. Cost me two days to get a Win7 x64, and almost one day to backup my files/accounts, and two more days to download, install, restore my previous working environment(Windows service packs+VS2008+VS2010+CUDA+eclipse+NDK+DX+SVN, and a bunch of other tools/utilities, but not Visual Studio 2013).
Story ended in Visual Studio 2013.
What I must say is Microsoft goes bad, the size of Visual Studio 2013 is big to almost 7 GB, what the hell it is…
It was a story of total failure, but look on the bright sight, I got rid of my sucked hateful Win7 x86 working environment eventually, with the newly installed Win7 x64 + 12GB ram, I have a fresh new speedy working environment now. Hurray.
