Hello. I want to develop small application with Qt + MinGW 4.4 for burning CD/DVD/BD. I would like to wrap the StarBurn functionality in my own c++ library that will offers high-level API to my application (moc, signal slot system, properties etc). But I have question about "compability" beetwen StarBurn library and MinGW compiler. Can I use the starburn libraries with mingw compiler in qtcreator? Im from Poland so I am sorry for my english.

One problem that I encountered lay in mingw header => winbase.h. Declaration of SYSTEMTIME structure in mingw winbase.h was:
Code:
typedef struct _SYSTEMTIME {
   WORD wYear;
   WORD wMonth;
   WORD wDayOfWeek;
   WORD wDay;
   WORD wHour;
   WORD wMinute;
   WORD wSecond;
   WORD wMilliseconds;
} SYSTEMTIME,*LPSYSTEMTIME;

and i changed this declaration to:
Code:
typedef struct _SYSTEMTIME {
   WORD wYear;
   WORD wMonth;
   WORD wDayOfWeek;
   WORD wDay;
   WORD wHour;
   WORD wMinute;
   WORD wSecond;
   WORD wMilliseconds;
} SYSTEMTIME,*PSYSTEMTIME,*LPSYSTEMTIME;

because starburn library uses near pointer *PSYSTEMTIME. After this change my library which uses starburn library compile succesfull.
Can anyone tell me about any other issues with mingw and starburn library?

Hello,

1) We didn't check whether our SDK is compatible with MinGW;

2) We will be glad to help you resolve possible issues with MinGW;

Regards,

Dmitry

If you'll use dynamic linking (DLL) everything should be fine. Static linking is not going to work and there's no way to workaround this.

It's OK to change / add names but you should not change structure sizes / packing / change member variables.

Thank you for the reply. I'm going to use only dynaminc linking libraries for my projects. Everything was OK after changing/adding near *PSYSTEMTIME pointer definition to my MinGW <winbase.h> file.

Good. So you're going to be fine so far :) Let us know if you'd have other issues (IF).
