Hi all

I am trying to install LibCVD onto my computer, which uses Windows XP, but I think it is failing to compile. I have cut and paste the Build Log file below. Does anyone know what is going on? Is it possible to fix?

I believe you need to do the following:

create a directory tree somewhere, e.g.:


Now set up some environment variables to tell the libCVD build process about these directories. Other libCVD/Windows users havre had good luck with RapidEE

set the variables:


Then compile the prerequisites and put them in the new directory tree:

Compile libjpeg, and put the headers in c:\local\include and the .lib or dll file in c:\local\lib.

Then do the same for pthreads-win32. I believe it is available pre-compiled.

Download TooN and move the entire thing to c:\local\include\TooN (there is no compiling).

Now libCVD should compile. If you use the installer, it will put libCVD in the directory tree that you created.

In order to use libCVD, you need only point the compiler at c:\local\include and c:\local\lib, and it will find all the correct libraries.
