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++
Undoing this resolution, I see now this is for a patch that was submitted that has an alternate implementation which isn't in mainline.
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.
Is this issue still outstanding?
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.
