Error compiling 3d/pointCloudExample in VS community 2013

I am a complete noob to OF and i have a copy of the book “Mastering OF”.
When i try to compile the first example on the book (3d/pointCloud) i get these errors (i am using VS community 2013):

  1. error C2440: ‘=’ : cannot convert from ‘ofPtr’ to ‘bool’
  2. error LNK1104: cannot open file ‘C:\openframeworks\of_v0.8.4_vs_release\libs\openFrameworksCompiled\lib\vs\openframeworksLib_debug.lib’
  3. IntelliSense: no suitable conversion function from “ofPtr” to “bool” exists.

Any help please…?
Thank You!

Hi there!

I’m more of a Mac user, but I think OF 8.4 is not compatible with VS’13. You can download and get a free license for VS’12 Express, or use Code::Blocks.

Thank you Hubris!
i will try with VS12 or code::blocks and check if that works.
