OpenVibe build - C compiler identification unknown error

Post by openvibeexplorer »

Hello there,

I am working on building OpenVibe on Windows 10 machine.
I have successfully installed "Visual Studio Express 2013 Desktop" Version.
I was successfully able to install all dependencies with "install_dependencies.cmd".
However, I receive the following error while running "build.cmd".

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Building sdk
Build type is set to: Release.
Visual Studio 2017 detection skipped as requested
Visual Studio 2015 detection skipped as requested
VStools: D:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Common7\Tools\, VSCMake: Visual Studio 12 2013.
Compiler is: Visual Studio 12 2013 Win64
-- The C compiler identification is unknown
-- The CXX compiler identification is unknown
-- Configuring incomplete, errors occurred!

See also "D:/openvibebackup/build/sdk-Release-x64/CMakeFiles/CMakeError.log".
An error occured during building process
""
Error while building "Release SDK"

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Could you please guide me through the resolution process?
Thanks in advance,

Hi,
Can you give us the result of the install_dependency script (in case of). And i'm not sure but run visual studio express if he wan't to make an update or finish install. The compiler unknown line is weird if visual is here.

This issue got resolved when I started building over "Developer Command Prompt for VS2013" rather than using the usual command prompt. I could do OpenVibe build successfully.
