Custom DirectXTex (dxtex) Library Mismatch Error


The customized DirectXTex library (dxtex.lib) included within the project Austin dependencies (x86) is built with VS2012, which throws MSC_VER Mismatch errors when building the solution in VS2013. Furthermore, attempting to use a fresh build of "stock" DirectXTex results in errors due to custom changes by the Project Austin team to the original included library which are not present in a "stock" copy of DirectXTex'.

Solution: Release the source for the customizations to the DirectX Tex library and upgrade the custom dxtex library project to a Windows 8.1 project from a Windows 8 (VS2012 {11.0}) project.
