Re: installing wxWidgets in Visual Studio

I am now giving up for good. Spent another day. I get the feeling wxWidgets has never worked for Windows; just Unix or something.
My best result so far was getting it to find all the include files, and then have 53 errors in those include files. Goodbye!

Re: installing wxWidgets in Visual Studio

OK, I give up. Nothing I've tried worked. Would love to use wxWidgets; it looks like an excellent setup. Maybe I'll give it a week, forget everything I've done, and try again.

Re: installing wxWidgets in Visual Studio

OK, how do I define an environment variable? include\wx\platform.h has this line: include "wx/setup.h" and can't find it. None of these things have worked: setup.h is in include\msvc\wx, which I added to the project properties I have put setup.h in include\wx I have put setup.h in include\wx\wx My p...

Re: installing wxWidgets in Visual Studio

I forgot there were all those working programs in samples, so I tried minimal and it worked. I just can't make a copy and put it in a different directory; all of it's directory paths are relative to it being in the samples directory, so I'm in the process of hardcoding them to my C:\wxWidgets direct...

Re: installing wxWidgets in Visual Studio

VS 2017 looks as hard to install as 2019, so I'm sticking with 2019. Right now setup.h seems to be the problem. There's a "fake" one it starts with, in include\msvc\wx, which then calls the "real" one, which I think is in include\wx\msw, but the "fake" one is looking in the lib directory. It's looki...

Re: installing wxWidgets in Visual Studio

Can't make any sense of the GIT website.
I think I'll start over. Dump Visual Studio 2019 since it's new, and go back to a version that has wx binaries.

Re: installing wxWidgets in Visual Studio

I started with minimal again. This time I started with an empty project, added the minimal.cpp program, added the same 3 includes I did before. It got about as far as the Hello World program. Cannot open source file ..\sample.xpm Cannot open source file ..\..\..\lib\vc_lib\mswd\wx\setup.h I don't se...

Re: installing wxWidgets in Visual Studio

Nope. It's .sin file wouldn't load. I loaded the project file and it was for an old version of VS, VS "updated" it, and it couldn't find includes, etc.
