Re: 7.4.2 size question.

Ahhh, that explains it. Yeah, I am still not using Unicode since I like the size of not having it and I program for the States only. I normally only use wxDev C++ to write my skeleton and take that skeleton into MSVC where the actual final build happens as MSVC makes for smaller code than GCC and I ...

7.4.2 size question.

Just updating all of my wxWidgets stuff (catching up is more like it as my stuff is 2 years old) and noticed that 7.4.2 is 3 times the size of even 7.4.1 (I have 7.3.1.3). What in the world is in this for it to have grown so much?

Re: Cannot open include file: 'wx/setup.h' using Win install

I still wish I understood why I had to revert to nmake to do the job the ide was always able to do? It still works for me, so don't think it was something big. Yep, and my project compiled fine so it was something minor that must not have translated for me correctly when I would bring in the wxWidg...

Re: Cannot open include file: 'wx/setup.h' using Win install

I don't think there are parameters for every single compiler/linker option. I guess you can pass them somehow through CPPFLAGS=... and LDFLAGS=..., but i don't know. That is exactly what I did and it worked 100%. I still wish I understood why I had to revert to nmake to do the job the ide was alway...

Re: Cannot open include file: 'wx/setup.h' using Win install

Where can I find which libs are now obsolete because I noticed a few included in my old 2.8.11 builds that never were built for 2.9.4? Like which ones? The only ones i can think of are "odbc" and "dbgrid" which were removed because ODBC support was dropped. LOL, OMG, LOL those are exactly the two. ...

Re: Cannot open include file: 'wx/setup.h' using Win install

Add RUNTIME_LIBS=static to the command line when building the wxWidgets libraries. That is exactly what I was missing so thank you. I never did get the IDE to do what I told it though. Where can I find which libs are now obsolete because I noticed a few included in my old 2.8.11 builds that never w...

Re: Cannot open include file: 'wx/setup.h' using Win install

These error usually mean that the libraries and the application were build using different CRT settings. Yep, my program is /MT and wxWidgets is /MD I believe but on the command line when compiling wxWidgets how would I tell wxWidgets to be /MT because I don't compile my programs as /MD which I do ...

Re: Cannot open include file: 'wx/setup.h' using Win install

I understand your frustration, and so I would kindly recommend you to check out the wxWiki guide explaining how to build the wxWidgets library in a beginner friendly way. I believe the basic issues you're struggling with, like not properly including platform specific setup.h and those new errors of...

Re: Cannot open include file: 'wx/setup.h' using Win install

That is what I get compiling a program. Again, it thinks I am on Unix. What program? Yours of one of the samples? And what does this have to do with Unix? Anyway, if the libraries build successfully, it's probably just a simple issue of wrong include path, especially since you messed with the Unico...

Re: Cannot open include file: 'wx/setup.h' using Win install

I think I am going to go back to 2008 because frankly I no longer have the patience I once had.

C:\wxWidgets-2.9.4\include\wx/platform.h(154): fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'wx/setup.h': No such file or directory

That is what I get compiling a program. Again, it thinks I am on Unix.

Re: Cannot open include file: 'wx/setup.h' using Win install

I did that and it still gives me the Unicode release only build. And how do you determine that? As it's just a flag and not a separate compiler configuration, the filenames of the libraries won't change, so they will still have the 'U' in them. You can tell that by the directory in which they are c...

Re: Cannot open include file: 'wx/setup.h' using Win install

BTW: You can also build from the command line using Visual Studio, then you don't have the issue with the not properly converted project files. My files are now converted properly with something new 2010 demands (as I printed above) but it will not abide by any switches AND when I tell it to conver...

Code: Select all

#define wxUSE_UNICODE 1
I did that and it still gives me the Unicode release only build.

Re: Cannot open include file: 'wx/setup.h' using Win install

Grabbed 2.9.4 zip and I have a ton of warnings (like this "warning MSB8012: TargetPath(C:\wxWidgets-2.9.4\build\msw\.\..\..\lib\vc_lib\wxregex.lib) does not match the Library's OutputFile property value (C:\wxWidgets-2.9.4\lib\vc_lib\wxregexu.lib).
