Also there is no project generator as in the linux version.
Can the project generator be installed on windows? if so how?
Is there a guide to creating projects manually without an IDE or the project generator around somewhere?
For the examples not building, I believe that they are all examples that require an addon.
There is a bug in the makefile that is called when using addons.
I think it’s solved in the master but you can fix it by yourself. Have a look at my post here
For the Project Generator, I do not use it, I prefer copying ‘config.make’ and ‘Makefile’ from other projects. For example, from <OF_ROOT>\scripts\templates\msys2
I can copy an an example and work from that but I don’t know how to manually add an add on in the make file, could you possibly explain how to do that?, i’m trying to use ofxmidi and it’s instructions only describe how to include it with the project generator. It also requires the project generator to compile the examples that come with it.
Generally, you don’t need to modify the makefile.
To use addons, you just need to create (if not already there) an ‘addons.make’ file that list the addons (one per line) you want to use.
In your case, it may only have one line:
OF will try to locate the directory ‘ofxmidi’ in the OF ‘addons’ directory.
Some more hints :
Each line of addons.make is a (relative) path to the root directory so ..\myaddons\myofxmidi should work
If an addon depends on other addon, it shouldn’t be necessary to include the dependency addons.
the examples that come with ofxMidi do not have make files, the project generator creates them.
so how did you build them without using the project generator?
the instructions for installing ofxMidi and compiling the examples describe only how to build them using the project generator to create the projects and not how to do it without the project generator.
