To run scut binaries, you need Windows NT 4 or newer. Note that Windows 95/98/Me are not supported by these binaries.
- Open a command prompt to your version of Visual C++ and set up your environment.
- Unpack and enter the scut source tree.
- Most of the time, just run "nmake".
Compilation options can be used by passing arguments to NMAKE.
|DEBUG=||Enable debug code. Valid values are 0 (disabled) or 1 (enabled.) Default is 0.|
|MINICRT=||Compile against Minicrt rather than Msvcrt. Valid values are 0 (disabled) or 1 (enabled.) If 1, minicrt.h and minicrt.lib must be in %INCLUDE% and %LIB% respectively. An alternative way to use Minicrt is to extract it into a crt subdirectory within the scut directory, and it will be used automatically. Default is 0.|
|MSVCRT_DLL=||Compile against the shared, DLL C runtime library, or the static version. Valid values are 0 (static C runtime), or 1 (shared C runtime.) Default is 1.|
|UNICODE=||Compile a Unicode or ANSI version of the binary. Unicode is more useful on NT, but ANSI is required to run on Windows 95. Valid values are 1 (Unicode) or 0 (ANSI.) Default is 1.|
