"wx.rc" not found on MSYS2/W64 on Win10

Post by francis33y » Tue Oct 06, 2020 2:29 pm

Hello

I am trying hard to compile my software as a 64 bit app on Win10. I installed MSYS2 today with latest wx305 and latest gcc w64 toolchain

When I do wx-config --rescomp I get:

Code: Select all

windres --include-dir C:/msys64/mingw64/include/wx-3.0 --define __WIN32__ --define __GNUWIN32__ --define WX_CPU_AMD64
But when I run the make, it gives an error with winres:

Code: Select all

`wx-config --rescomp` --use-temp-file -iresources.rc -oresources.o
resources.rc:3:10: fatal error: wx/msw/wx.rc: No such file or directory
    3 | #include "wx/msw/wx.rc"
      |          ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~
compilation terminated.
C:\msys64\mingw64\bin\windres.exe: C:\msys64\mingw64\bin\gcc a termin▒ avec le statut 1
make: *** [Makefile6.win:15 : resources.o] Erreur 1
I don't understand why it can't find wx.rc which I have at:

Code: Select all

 locate wx.rc
/mingw64/include/wx-3.0/wx/msw/wx.rc
Any help would be appreciated !

In addition, I am surprised to see __WIN32__ and __GNUWIN32__ while I am trying to build a 64 bits app !

I was fighting with a similar problem yesterday. It turned out to be a problem with the MSYS2 version of windres relating to parsing include paths, however my case may have been different as I have the include files on D: drive.

In the end, I used the mingw-64 (https://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw-w64/) version of windres which works fine with MSYS2.
wxWidgets 3.1.2, MinGW64 8.1.0, g++ 8.1.0, Ubuntu 19.04, Windows 10, CodeLite + wxCrafter
Some people, when confronted with a GUI problem, think "I know, I'll use Eclipse RCP". Now they have two problems.

With newer GCC, --use-temp-file made windres not working, see
https://github.com/msys2/MINGW-packages/issues/6558

And AFAIK, those WIN32 defines just mean that Win32 API is used and it has no relation to the actual binary bitness.

responding to myself (but still having problems and no solution):

Instead of using the package wxwidgets 3.0.5 of mingw 64 bits which is using shared DLLs, I removed it and tried to compile the sources with

Code: Select all

./configure --enable-monolithic --disable-shared  --enable-unicode --disable-threads --disable-xrc
which works fine

Code: Select all

...
Configured wxWidgets 3.0.5 for `x86_64-w64-mingw32'

  Which GUI toolkit should wxWidgets use?                 msw
  Should wxWidgets be compiled into single library?       yes
  Should wxWidgets be linked as a shared library?         no
  Should wxWidgets support Unicode?                       yes (using wchar_t)
  What level of wxWidgets compatibility should be enabled?
                                       wxWidgets 2.6      no
                                       wxWidgets 2.8      yes
  Which libraries should wxWidgets use?
                                       STL                no

I believe that this may be the same issue that was somehow fixed only in 3.1 branch here: https://github.com/wxWidgets/wxWidgets/pull/887

From my experience, using old wxWidgets versions (3.0 is about 5 years old) with new compilers may not be the best idea.

BTW, I am not really familiar with MSYS, but I thought that unlike when using a regular MinGW, you can / are expected to just use the provided prebuilt package, e.g. https://packages.msys2.org/base/mingw-w64-wxWidgets

I do not use wx-config but I can attest that wxWidgets 3.1.4 builds with the current MSYS2 mingw-w64-i686-toolchain using the bundled GCC makefile.

Thanks to both of you

First, I removed the "--use-temp-file " for winres and it solved the "wx.rc" problem as you said !

Second, I succeeded in compiling wx305 on my MinGW64/Win10 (since the corresponding package is using DLLs and I want a monolithic app) with an additionnal option to disable mediactrl. Also I switched to the right dir: "build/msw" (I didn't pay attention to it previously)...Everything works fine but when I launch my app from Win10, it requires 2 DLLs for jpg and png.

Then, I decided to compile again with the mediactrl enabled... I'll check if it solves this requirement for 2 DLLs... when the compilation will end.

To answer your comment on "why 3.0.5 ?" it is just the recommended "stable" version that I supposed will not require any upgrade on my source code.

If you think I am misleaded, please tell me where to go to avoir this external DLL requirement.

Again, many thanks for your super valuable help !

(Once again, I do not use configure/wx-config)

Regarding the image format DLLs needed even in the static build, I would try switching these libraries from "sys" to "builtin" to see if it helps.

BTW, are you sure your application will not require any compiler DLLs? With MinGW makefiles, static wxWidgets build or not, for 32-bit executable built with mingw-w64-i686-gcc at least these GCC DLLs are needed:

Code: Select all

libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll
libstdc++-6.dll
libwinpthread-1.dll
and one has to pass

Code: Select all

LDFLAGS="-static"
to the make to link them statically.

But I guess this is different with configure, either way this is easy to test running the .exe on a computer where there is no GCC bin folder in the path.

Configured wxWidgets 3.0.5 for `x86_64-w64-mingw32'

  Which GUI toolkit should wxWidgets use?                 msw
  Should wxWidgets be compiled into single library?       yes
  Should wxWidgets be linked as a shared library?         no
  Should wxWidgets support Unicode?                       yes (using wchar_t)
  What level of wxWidgets compatibility should be enabled?
                                       wxWidgets 2.6      no
                                       wxWidgets 2.8      yes
  Which libraries should wxWidgets use?
                                       STL                no
                                       jpeg               sys
                                       png                sys
                                       regex              builtin
                                       tiff               sys

                                       sdl                no
After make; make install; and my own makefile for my app, it worked... except it requires jpg and png dlls. If I copy them in the same folder as my executable, then it tells an error: 0xc000007b at the start. This is something I don't understand. It starts and ask for DLLs, if I supply them, it tells an error. FYI I copied the DLLs from C:\msys64\mingw64\bin

I used to compile in 32 bits with MinGw32 and I avoided DLLs with following options:

Code: Select all

../../configure --enable-monolithic --disable-shared --enable-unicode --disable-threads
where '--disable-threads' avoids having to add mingwm10.dll in app folder.
And in my Makefile:

Code: Select all

LFLAGS = -lm  -static-libgcc -static-libstdc++ -lmingw32 `wx-config --libs`
My goal now is to be able to do the equivalent in 64 bits using MinGW64... I was not able to find a tutorial to help me in my purpose. Hence, I have tried "blindly".

It does not seem that you asked for the builtin versions of the library. I think that e.g. for libjpeg that would be

Code: Select all

--with-libjpeg=builtin
see viewtopic.php?p=120079#p120079

BTW, here is my guide to building wxWidgets on MSW with GCC with MSYS mingw-w64 package, but it uses MinGW makefiles and adding the libraries in the IDE manually (well, using the Code::Blocks wizard), not MSYS environment and configure:

Re: "wx.rc" not found on MSYS2/W64 on Win10

I have compiled wx3.1.4 with following configure

Code: Select all

../../configure --enable-monolithic --disable-shared  --enable-unicode --disable-sys-libs --without-subdirs --disable-xrc
And after make; make install; and my own make of my software (as stated earlier)... it gives an executable that works fine from within MSYS2 command line and, when launched directly from Win10, requires no extra DLL (as least does not complain about missing DLL) but stops with same error as above
App could not start correctly (0xc000007b), click ok to close app
I remember that, a long time ago, I had the same problem in 32 bits and had to add mingw10.dll and add some static libs in my makefile (gcc and stdc++).

I truly don't know what I am doing wrong ... probably which DLL (or static lib in my makefile) is missing... any help ?

If no help, I'll drop MSYS2 and start new strategy using DOS command line (which is completely new to me).

I do not know what that error is. Do you have the MinGW bin folder in your PATH? Does the minimal sample produced the same error? If not, it may be the customizations you are doing in your makefile.

You may consider using CMakeGUI which has both powerful possibilities of build customization and ease of doing them with a GUI.

However, using MinGW makefile is easy as well, except that some customizations cannot be made by passing a command line parameter but must be done by modifying setup.h

Hi,
What is the reason you want MONOLITHIC build?
It doesn't gin anything and might give your problems linking your code.

I suggest removing it and rebuilding the library.

Thank you.

I compiled again wx314 with MSYS2/W64 which went fine (no error)

Code: Select all

../../configure --enable-monolithic --disable-shared  --enable-unicode --with-libjpeg=builtin --with-libpng=builtin
I also did the "make samples", it stopped with errors:

I then tested the minimal sample (which succeeded to be compiled) and got exactly the same problems as with my own app: requiring libgcc and zlib as DLLs. After providing these (taken in
C:\msys64\mingw64\bin
), I get exactly the same error as with my own app. Again, if launched from MSYS2 terminal, it just works nicely... while not at all from Win10 desktop.

I don't know why I can't use this method that just works fine for 32 bits. I guess I now need to follow PB's advice

Hi,
Could you please try without "--enable-monolithic"?
Or just use "--disable-monolithic".

Thank you.
