Setup.h is not found (VS2019)

Do you have a question about makefiles, a compiler or IDE you are using and need to know how to set it up for wxWidgets or why it doesn't compile but other IDE's do ? Post your questions here.

Setup.h is not found (VS2019)

Post by ROGERBRETON » Mon Apr 05, 2021 2:56 am

I'm getting : E1696 cannot open source file "../../../lib/vc_x64_lib/mswud/wx/setup.h" TestWX F:\wx\3.1.4\include\msvc\wx\setup.h 140

Tried many things to no avail. I managed to get this far but beats me as to why the Linker can't find setup.h :(

Any help is appreciated.

Assuming you are trying to build your application and now wxWidgets itself?

Is the file there, in other words did you build wxWidgets successfully in 64-bit static debug configuration?

How did you set up your project? There are at least three ways to do that with MSVS but basically: did you set the project up manually (e.g., like this) or did you use wxwidgets.props way?
