General Question: which setup.h is used? and where?

Post by Avi » Thu May 12, 2005 9:13 pm

Well, today I noticed couple of copies of the same setup.h file:
- /setup.h.in
- /include/wx/setup_inc.h
- /include/wx/msw/setup.h
- /include/wx/msw/setup0.h

Which one is used, and under which conditions? I use Microsoft Visual Studio 2003, and so I modified /include/wx/msw/setup.h... but should I change the other 3? What are they for? (especially setup_inc.h and setup0.h) :?:

You'll only need /include/wx/msw/setup.h. The others are there for generation of a setup.h using configure. Using VS /include/wx/msw/setup.h is the right one. It will be copied to a different location (/lib/vd_lib/msw or /lib/vc_lib/mswd) so that you can have different builds. Be sure to set your include path to the corresponding lib dir.
OS: OpenSuSE, Ubuntu, Win XP Pro
wx: svn
Compiler: gcc 4.5.1, VC 2008, eVC 4

After making my own FindWxWidgets script for cmake, I noticed that the only valid setup.h that should be used is copied by wxWidgets itself while building. The setup.h informs you (and the rest of the stuff to be compiled) what the config is.

Include the one in {WXDIR}/lib/ms_vc/msw(ud)/setup.h in your project include path.

I don't know where it is copied from, but during build the one that is copied should be adjusted to configure the wx lib.

It is copied from {WXDIR}/include/wx/msw/setup.h (just as upCASE said).
