Hello,

Maybe I'm in the wrong Forum, then sorry.

But I'd like to build the Cool VL Viewer from the source. I've downloaded the sources and unpacked it.
I've run the windows Windows-Build.bat. Everything fine, opened the solution file in Visual Studio and ran Build Project.
So far, so good. Visual Studio then complained about missing Boost-Header Files.

No Surprise for me, because I did not install any Third Party Libraries.

My Problem is now. How do I install them? When I click onto the "Third party libraries" from the Cool VLV "Source Page",
I get a nice list of a lot of Libraries to download. Fine, I downloaded the Boost Library and now? Where to unpack them in a way the
automatic configurator discovers them and integrates them into the solution.

Thank you so much for your kind help!
Akira

If you did install all the dependencies for building, the pre-built libraries will be automatically downloaded by the build scripts (you do not need to install anything else yourself beside the build tools).

My guess is that you did not properly install Python.

Please, review the detailed instructions given in the linden/doc/WindowsBuildHowto.txt file.

Also, be sure to download the latest sources of the viewer (old releases builds are not supported since I do not keep archives of the old pre-built libraries they may be using).

Hanri, thank you so much!

I war not very successful with Windows ... Both approaches described in the text file did not work.
Python was installed and Visual Studio, cmake etc.

But i took another approach, switched to my linux system ( arch linux -> i guess because i have some AUR packages installed all the necessary tools to build software from source were already there, I even didn't check all the prerequisites ).

./linux-build.sh

and boom:
Build successful. Total time taken by the building and packaging: 564.23 seconds.

Perfect, That's all I need!

Thank you so much!
Akira

There was obviously something missing: quoting the errors you got from the build system would have helped finding out what...

Bonjour Henri,

I found out my Python Installation was somehow broken. After uninstalling and cleaning and installing the latest Python everything ran fine on Windows as well:

Code:
Build succeeded.
    0 Warning(s)
    0 Error(s)

Time Elapsed 00:05:54.73
Compilation finished (and hopefully successful). Press a key to exit.
Press any key to continue . . .


Really cool this build process!
Thank you so much for all your effort!

Akira

I even made it build faster for v1.32.0.13... :-P It now builds (with clang and lto) in less than 140s on my main Linux system (instead of 164s before)...
