Cinder 0.9.1 and VisualStudio 2015 (not working)


#1

Hi All,
I’m new on Windows, :frowning: . I can’t make Visual Studio 2015 to run cinder 0.9.1 examples. I already installed C++ and Windows Target Platform on 8.1. But I have an error, LNK1104 cannot open file 'cinder.lib’
How to fix it?
Thanks

VErsion 0.9.1 is released wtih VS 2013 projects that use de v120 compiler version, so you need to compile cinder for VS 2015 first.

Open the solution found in cinder_0.9.1_vc2013\proj\vc2013, accept to upgrade the compiler version (I think that would be v140) an then compile it for the version you want to use (Release win32, Debug win32, Release x64, etc).


#3

I would recommend copying the vc2013 to a vc2015 folder, and then following xumo’s instructions. Upgrading the PlatformToolset modifies the project files.


#4

Right
Thanks for te solution, now it is working!
