Hi Derek,

>hi, I'm having trouble building the Qt Reactor for VC8 using ACE5.5.

ACE 5.5 is very old.  Please upgrade to ACE+TAO+CIAO x.6.2 (i.e., ACE
5.6.2, TAO 1.6.2, and CIAO 0.6.2), which you can download from


under the heading: "Latest Beta Kit."

The DOC groups at Washington University, UC Irvine, and Vanderbilt
University only provide "best effort" support for non-sponsors for the
latest release, as described in


Thus, if you need more "predictable" help for earlier versions of
ACE+TAO, I recommend that you check out


for a list of companies that will provide you with ACE+TAO commercial



>I have added the ACE_HAS_QT flag to config.h, and rebuilt the ACEd
>library. I thought that this rebuilt library would include the
>QtReactor but it does not seem to be the case.
>Reading the install docs, there is some mention of using mwc.pl
>command to create new project files. Is this what I need to do to
>create the files, or am I missing something?
