 1Comments on building tcl/tk for AMD64 with the MS SDK compiler
 4I did have to build tcl/tk manually.
 6First, I had to build the nmakehlp.exe helper utility manually by executing
 7   cl nmakehlp.c /link bufferoverflowU.lib
 8in both the tcl8.4.12\win and tk8.4.12\win directories.
10Second, the AMD64 compiler refuses to compile the file
11tcl8.4.12\generic\tclExecute.c because it insists on using intrinsics
12for the 'ceil' and 'floor' functions:
14  ..\generic\tclExecute.c(394) : error C2099: initializer is not a constant
15  ..\generic\tclExecute.c(398) : error C2099: initializer is not a constant
17I did comment out these lines; an alternative would have been to use
18the /Oi- compiler flag to disable the intrinsic functions.
19The commands then used were these:
21   svn export
22   cd tcl8.4.12\win
23   REM
24   echo patch the tcl8.4.12\generic\tclExecute.c file
25   pause 
26   REM
27   cl nmakehlp.c /link bufferoverflowU.lib
28   nmake -f MACHINE=AMD64
29   nmake -f INSTALLDIR=..\..\tcltk install
30   cd ..\..
31   svn export
32   cd tk8.4.12\win
33   cl nmakehlp.c /link bufferoverflowU.lib
34   nmake -f TCLDIR=..\..\tcl8.4.12 MACHINE=AMD64
35   nmake -f TCLDIR=..\..\tcl8.4.12 INSTALLDIR=..\..\tcltk install
36   cd ..\..
