sorry to hear you’re still struggling with this. In your latest screenshot, it looks like you’re missing the
boost library. I assume you’re using Cinder’s Git version? When cloning the repository, make sure to also update its submodules. A repository contains all files necessary to compile and build an application. Sometimes it depends on another repository (in this case the
boost library), which is then added as a “linked repository” called a submodule. The easiest way to download all of that is when cloning Cinder like this:
git clone --recursive git://github.com/cinder/Cinder.git cinder_master
If you want to update the submodules afterwards, open a command window, browse to the root of your cinder folder and run:
git submodule update --init --recursive
See also this guide, which describes everything in more detail. I should mention that the guide was written with VS2013 in mind. When using VS2015 and above, open the cinder project file in the vs2015 folder. The name and location of the
cinder.lib file have been changed, too. See this old post with a description.
