I'm trying to compile Libreoffice on Windows with Cygwin. For this, I
had to install some softs including Microsoft Visual C++ Express 8.
When I launched configuration part of Libreoffice (so just before
compiling), I noticed that some config elements weren't found.
By taking a look about the cause of this, I saw that Windows registry
mapped by Cygwin located in /proc/registry wasn't complete.
For example I've got :
/proc/registry/HKLM/Software/Microsoft/VC8 (since I'm right now on
Linux, the path is not exactly this one but that's the idea) but
nothing in it whereas I can see with regedit there are keys and subkeys.
I could not reproduce this. Please provide output of:
$ uname -rs
$ cd /proc/registry/HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft
$ stat VisualStudio/8.0
$ ls -la VisualStudio/8.0
If 'ls' output is actually empty, retry with Cygwin shell running as
(ls /proc/registry/HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SAM/SAM should work then).
Please note that the Express editions of Visual Studio put some subkeys
to a different location:
A configuration script expecting Express edition might not work with a
regular edition and vice versa.
