I've downloaded the source and planned to contribute to FlashDevelop. The project file is for Visual C# 2008 Express, but I only have the newer Visual Studio 2010. Microsoft also doesn't offer Visual C# 2008 Express anymore. I think, we could experience some difficulties on versioning the source if I use Visual Studio 2010 to deliver patches on a Visual Studio 2008 project.

Visual C# 2010 Express has been released a while ago. Will you convert the project to the newer version?

You can still get C# Express 2008 actually: ... x?id=20682

We certainly should look into upgrading to 2010, it's already 2012 :)

Building FD4 in C# Express 2010

Checkout latest FD code from SVN (

1. Convert solution to VS 2010.
- Open C# Express 2010, drag FlashDevelop.sln in it.
You'll be prompted to convert this project to newer version.
- In Convert dialog press Finish and wait while it converts. You shouldn't get any errors.

2. Switch configuration to x86.
- In main menu select Tools -> Settings -> Expert Settings.
Two new comboboxes will appear in the toolbar: 'Debug' and 'Any CPU'.
- Select 'x86' from 'Any CPU' box.

3. Change framework version to 2.0
Solution converter messed up all your framework versions, you need to restore them.
If you try to build, you'll get errors like 'The type or namespace name 'PluginCore' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?).

- Run search&replace on the FD4 folder (*.csproj files). Search for:
replace with:

If C# Express was open, you'll get lots of 'Reload/Ignore' dialogs. Press 'Reload' in every one of them.

4. Run the project.
FD4 should build and run normally.
