I have succesfully used openFrameworks on Ubuntu and OSX, and recently have aquired a new laptop which came with Windows 10 preinstalled. I’d like to stick with windows ( for gaming reasons ) , but if I can’t crack it I will have to consider dual-booting with linux.
I have been trying to get OF to work for a couple of weeks now without any success. I used to use QT with OF on linux so tried that first but couldn’t get it working. Msys2 worked to a point and then gave me errors when I tried to compile examples with make. I was also getting lots of complaints about undefined reference to cxx11 when I tried to build them in QT. Therefore I assumed that I was missing the correct version of C++, but I had abosulutely no idea how to get the right one on windows having never really used it before.
I eventually gave up, and decided to go with VS after being reccomended to it by a number of peers. I downloaded VS2015, and downloaded of_v0.9.3_vs_release. I successfully installed the OF addon and the project generator works fine. However I can’t actually compile the examples and get the following error:
fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'ctype.h': No such file or directory (compiling source file ..\..\..\openFrameworks\3d\of3dPrimitives.cpp)
OF is located in C:/Users/Public/bin/of_v0.9.3_vs_release, and the apps are generated in apps/myApps/ two below as they should be. Does anyone with Windows experience have any ideas, what I’m doing wrong?? Many thanks in advance for any advice and help!
