Visual Studio 2010
To build the asio based c++ client and server, additional Visual Studio 2010 project files have to be provided.
Alternative ASIO based fully async client/server for C++
THRIFT-1542 provides the Visual Studio 2010 project files for THRIFT-579.
Added Visual Studio 2010 project files for libthriftasync and the tutorial projects.
Added macros to asio tutorial code to enable automated linking in visual studio.
Is this issue still outstanding?
Use the cmake build system to generate a Visual Studio 2010 project. It will contain the libevent async stuff if you have it set up properly. Look inside build/wincpp to learn more about running cmake to generate a visual studio project. The static projects will be removed at some point because they are hard to maintain, while generating a project is a little more work up front for the consumer, it is almost self-maintaining.
Undoing this resolution, I see now this is for a patch that was submitted that has an alternate implementation which isn't in mainline.
