10.17.3 Other Changes
- Under Windows, the name of the static SICStus run-time has changed
sprt310_static.lib. At the same time
the import library for the dynamic SICStus run-time has changed to
sprt310.lib. This change should only affect those that do not use
spld to build executables.
- Under Windows it is not longer possible to link with the SICStus
run-time using MS Visual Studio 5. This has been unsupported for years
but now it has really ceased to work.
Under Windows the windowed version of SICStus will put up a license entry
dialog if the license has expired or is invalid. There is also a menu
item for changing the license, e.g. when changing from a time limited
license to a permanent license. This renders splm obsolete under Windows.
The Visual Basic interface no longer loads any supporting Prolog code,
vbsp.po are gone. A side benefit of
this is that you can call
restore/1 from Visual Basic, even
load_files/2 may be better.
