Setting up Cinder with Visual Studio 2015


#1

Hey there!

I’m new to Cinder and c++.
I really want to get started but I can’t even get VS to run the examples.
Can anyone give me some guidance?

I would aprecitate sugestions of some really basic tutorials. (if I can get it to to work… =(

Thanks in advance

Hi Gui,

Could you please tell us what errors you are getting, when you try to compile a sample project of your choice? You might find this useful: https://libcinder.org/docs/guides/opengl/part1.html

Hi balachandran_c!

I’m getting this:

I tried VS 2015 and 2017.

I can’t get my head arround the concept of importing library paths or somehting.

Thanks


#4

Can you post the compilation errors?


#5

Sure.


#6

I am guessing you are building your project with v140/v141 toolsets, but haven’t compiled cinder with the same toolset. Please compile cinder library using the same toolset first.

#8

Clicked “OK”

Starting the tutorial now.

Thanks balachandran_c for getting me setup!
