Hi,

I just learned from Lutz that the POV-Team had the rights to the Moray software
and I would like to ask you if you could do a recompile on Windows 10  to remove
the bug with the export of the code for povray 3.5 ?
I don't ask a new version with new features, just a recompile.

Do you think that it will be possible ?

Thank you for your understanding.

Best regards

No, it is not possible to just compile ancient code with new compilers.

If that was so trivial, don't you think Moray would have been released 
with that support already?

Hi Thorsten,

I didn't know that the new compilers couldn't recompile the ancien code. I
thought the compilers would just identify the deprecated classes and that it was
easy to change, because C++ is a standard language. Lutz said me that the rights
of Moray software belong to the POV-Team, so I thought there was no problem
either. I guess the problem is pretty technical from what you say. Is Moray's
code not well commented? Maybe Lutz could give some leads, I don't know. It's a
shame to let this tool die, because it's well thought out in use.

Best Regards

Frantz
