I have been trying to figure this one out for a while, lots of research.
The general consensus was that it could not be compiled on wp8, which made me sad, one the reasons I saw was the fact that windows phone does’nt include winsock. But of cause wp 8 does include winsock, to my surprise this was very easy to build and compile with a few alterations. I have tested, and my sample project it works.
I have only enabled the http option as there were a lot of additional libs which I’m not sure if windows phone 8 supports, I know you can compile openssl for so I will now try get this working
As always if anyone is interested I can post further instructions on how to set this up.
I think I’m nearly feature complete with wp 8 now which is great, I can now start finishing my game!
