I’m new to both VisualStudio and OpenFrameworks and I can’t seem to even get started with the examples.
I’ve tried a bunch of different examples, and I’ve tried both opening the .sln file from within Visual Studio, and using projectGenerator.exe to import the folder, and either way I get the same problems.
Whether I go to Build Solution, Start Debugging or Start Without Debugging I get the same sort of output in the console:
1>------ Build started: Project: openframeworksLib, Configuration: Debug x64 ------
1>Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
1>Error: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
2>------ Build started: Project: blendingExample, Configuration: Debug x64 ------
2>Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
========== Build: 0 succeeded, 2 failed, 0 up-to-date, 0 skipped ==========
A message pops up telling me there were build errors and asking whether I would like to run the last successful build, but if I click Yes, it can’t be found, presumably because there isn’t one.
I’m using Microsoft Visual Studio Community 2017 version 15.9.7, on Windows 10 64-bit, with version 0.7 of the OpenFrameworks plugin, and for OpenFrameworks itself I’ve got of_v0.10.1_vs2017_release.
