Compiling PoDoFo in VS2019 using MinGW and CMake RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've recently discovered Visual Studio supports CMake.  I've been trying to compile the PoDoFo project, but am having trouble with Visual Studio's interface and getting the settings right.

    Can someone help me?

    Download PoDoFo 0.9.6 -- http://podofo.sourceforge.net/download.html

    It requires some libraries (zlib, freetype, jpeg, tiff optional):

    These all install to c:\program files (x86)\gnuWin32\ in the bin, lib, and include folders.

    I try and setup the paths to reach those locations, but I keep getting errors that it can't find the libraries.  I don't understand what is not setup properly.

    Thank you in advance.

  • Hi Rick C.Hodgin3,

    Sorry for delay in reply.

    Our forum is discussing about usage tools in VS IDE, since your issue contains mingw and cmake and third api, it is likely that it is beyond our support. so we suggest you could open a new thread in stack overflow with cmake, mingw, visual-studio tag for better support.

    Thank you for understanding.

    Best Regards,
