windows build msys

Post by marcel.ritter » Fri Jul 31, 2020 1:49 pm

Hi all,

I'm trying to do a build using the msys environment on windows. I have added boost and openimage via the package manager there and use mingw and ninja for building. Is this a supported toolchain? I have an error in cmake, that maybe someone has already seen. The boost 1.72 somehow is detected, but still not 'found'. Maybe it has something todo with the python dependency?

The libboost*files are all installed in the msys64/mingw64/bin and ../lib directories.

Code: Select all

Nope, you need to use the procedure described here: https://github.com/LuxCoreRender/WindowsCompile

Visual Studio is available for free or you need to use Mingw for a specific reason ?

Ok. Thank you for pointing my to the location. It justed looked more like a linux-style project setup to me (and i found the dependent packages in the mingw pacman also). I have other projects running via the msys environment as well, thats why I gave it a try. I'm totally fine with a Visual Studio toolchain.

Ok. It did work fine now. I had the current VS 2019 installed. Thus, I installed the 2017 v141 build tools. But, I had to adjust the generator and the toolsversion in the cmake-build-x64.bat.

Then the build succeeded using the script, and I rendered the nice reflecting sphere demo from the luxcoredemo.exe. :D

I hate that too... We have to switch sooner or later, it's in my to-do list, but honestly with not so high priority.

As for availability, it is more and more difficult to access older versions of MS tools.

From my point of view, if it is still available, we can wait.

Yes, its always a pain to keep stuff up-to-date ... but its really nice if it is.
I'm glad to help out a bit (if I can). Let me know in case.
