Programming SHAR Project

SHAR – Visual Studio 2019 Import

Windows 10 – Visual Studio 2019 Updating

First, I started by importing the project into Visual Studio 2019, accepting any changes it requires to change project files to the new format, next I rebuilt the solution just to see what might happen, expecting tons of errors as the software surely wouldn’t have been compatible going from 2002 Visual Studio to 2019 in one go.

Sure enough, during the build process I was already getting hundreds of errors such as

'strcpy': This function or variable may be unsafe. Consider using strcpy_s instead. To disable deprecation, use _CRT_SECURE_NO_WARNINGS. See online help for details.

Seems like the best course of action here would be to install VS Studio 2002 and select it as the toolset for compiling. Far to many BCs between 2019 and 2002 (duh)

Gonna give that a try…
