Use GCC's windres as rcCompiler with windows-resources plugin

plugins

(Robin Jansohn) #1

To compile a Windows Resource file with the windows-resources plugin one currently seems to need the VisualCpp toolchain. I’m using the Gcc toolchain and would like to use the equivalent GNU tools windres as the rcCompiler. I’m guessing this is not possible at the moment?

Are there any plans to include Gcc toolchain support for this plugin? The commands seem pretty similar (http://www.mingw.org/wiki/MS_resource_compiler):

MS resource compiler: rc foo.rc
GNU tools resource compiler: windres foo.rc foo.res
