Are there any advantages for building a Gtk3 app for Windows OS with the MSVC Visual C++ Compiler over msys2 mingw (ucrt64)? Functionality-wise? Look-wise? Debug-wise?, Deployment-wise?
I’m new in a project that builds Gtk2 apps for Windows with Visual C++ and I was tasked with updating the build process for Gtk3. I did it with mingw and msys2 (as mentioned on the Gtk Windows Installation page) but the project is hesitant with changing from Visual C++ to mingw. No one really remembers if there was a special reason for using Visual C++.
Are there things we should consider or not really?
