Trying to compile from source

Aug 30, 2014 at 11:34 PM

I'm trying to recompile the source under Visual Studio Express 2013, and I have a few questions:
  1. As of the last revision (110020) There seems to be several directories with different branches of the code. Can you explain the difference between all those branches and which one should I use?
  2. I tried compiling one of the branches and it failed due to password-protcted Auxiliary/flickrsync.pfx . I assume this file contains your own API key for flickr. How do I create my own file? I'm not really familiar with C# (I know C++) and Microsoft's tool, but I want to start trying to do my own simple patch.

Ok, I made some progress:
  1. I managed to bypass the key issue which seems to be due to code signing, using this:
  2. I wanted to implement this patch:
But the code seems to be non working. After some googling, I managed to change it enough so that it compiles and runs as expected:
(I used DevBranch2014/... I hope this is the right one!)
I apologize in advance if the coding style is not OK. I don't really know C#. I know some C++ and know how to google for the C# equivalents I need.
(And above all, the original patch wasn't mine).

That looks good. I have been having a bit more time lately to update flickrsync. I'll try to include that in the next update.
