Handwriting Recognition

Hi, I’m an italian engineering student, and I got from my professor for assignment the development of an application that let you handwrite with the Leap Motion Controller and recognize the handwriting. I thought using the $1 recognizer like this project http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EWtoepJnKMA, using italian alphabet instead the one in the video, but sincerely I don’t know how to make it work with Visual Studio 2012, because it keeps me giving errors about the openframeworks files or for example the uint64_t declaration used in the project.

Here’s the source code with the addons : https://github.com/askemottelson/DianShou

Can someone please give me some advice to make it work or show me the steps to do the build properly? Because it keeps me giving error for not finding files or directories. Maybe I’m just doing the files installation wrong.

Thank You in advance for the replies.
