With the upcoming release of ClamAV 0.99.3 comes an important change for Windows users interested in compiling ClamAV from source. Version 0.99.3 marks the switch from Visual Studio 2013 (and earlier) to Visual Studio 2015. Among other things, the benefits of this switch include improved C99 compatibility and much less restrictive licensing for individuals, educators, OSS contributors, and small teams.
Please be aware, this update will break compatibility when compiling ClamAV on older versions of Visual Studio. Additionally, building the Installation Setup Projects requires a Microsoft-provided plugin which provides the necessary compilation support.
Finally, we’d like to give a shout out to Keith Jones for the initial pull request.
