Re: Development Debugging Environment - Setup Help

Pavel ...

I thought it was clear, but OK ....

The troubles Rick experienced at the time this thread was started were caused by not following the instructions exactly, as far as I can remember...
And AFAIS there are three people who report having trouble, or not being able to successfully compile wxWidgets 2.8.12.
And as I wrote:
Quote:
I downloaded the 'wxMSW-2.8.12-Setup.exe' form wxwidgets.org website and strictly followed the instructions on opencpn.org.
Tried all alternatives ...
Quote:
From your post I don't even understand if you managed to build wx itself, but I suppose you didn't, right?
That's right. I had to use your "package".

Quote:
There are no PATH entries needed for it, so they are hardly a problem, just post the output of
Code:
nmake -f makefile.vc BUILD=release MONOLITHIC=0 SHARED=1 UNICODE=1 USE_GDIPLUS=1 USE_OPENGL=1
and we'll see what's wrong...
I do that on occasion - at the moment I am happy to have "a working compile environment" again ...!
I had to update my old on from wxWidgets 2.8.10 and VC2008 ...!

But just to repeat: I did it 3 times. Each time precisely following the given instructions. And each time the compilation of wxWidgets failed!

BTW:
Quote:
If you are asked to choose the generator, select „Visual Studio 9 2008“
Shouldn't this be: "Visual Studio 10"?

Just for clarification:
I was not able to successfully compile wxWidgets 2.8.12!
Using your "ready to use" pack I had no problems at all (with the exception of the "ALL_BUILD" which I guess needs some additional settings, or so).

That would be greatly appreciated.

Gunther, even I am following these instructions step by step while making new Windows VMs as I don't use this OS myself anymore. If there was a problem, believe me, I would have corrected the instructions... If you find time to do it again, please record exactly what you did and which output you got. It might be the instructions are not clear for people who read it and lead to screwing something, but I really can't see where, especially as to build WX you need to change 2 lines in 1 file and issue 1 (well 2, if you count changing of the directory) command...

Corrected, thanks for spotting it.

Pavel

OK, so here we go ...

  1. Downloaded 'wxMSW-2.8.12-Setup.exe' from Downloads - wxWidgets
    (BTW: should add a note that one have to download "wxMSW")
  2. Ran the EXE and installed to: D:\Program Files\wxWidgets-2.8.12
  3. Opened 'Name: wx/msw/setup.h'
    and changed line 579 from: #define wxUSE_GRAPHICS_CONTEXT 0
    to: #define wxUSE_GRAPHICS_CONTEXT 1
    and line 1006 from: #define wxUSE_GLCANVAS 0
    to: #define wxUSE_GLCANVAS 1
    Saved and closed the file
  4. Continued with alternative 2
    Opened file D:\Program Files\wxWidgets-2.8.12\build\msw\config.vc
    and changed line 41 from: UNICODE = 0
    to: UNICODE = 1
    saved and closed the file.
    Here is already the first discrepancy - see [1]
  5. Started Visual C++Express 2010 and loaded project file: D:\Program Files\wxWidgets-2.8.12\build\msw\wx_dll.dsw
  6. VC++ opened the file and prompted me with the update + convert message -> clicked 'Yes' -> first error!
    Translated: The project file 'D:\Program Files\wxWidgets-2.8.12\build\msw\wx_adv.dsp' can not be loaded. Do you want to remove the project that couild not be loaded from the bundle/package?
    Yes - No
    This happened for all 20 project files.
  7. So right now I am at the point where the website says:
    Quote:
    If you keep getting the "Project files cannot be loaded. error is: X:\XXX\XXX\XXX.dsp: error: Project upgrade failed." errors, you have to take the intermediate step of converting the projects to VS2008 format - install VC++ 2008 as described earlier and Convert the solution to VC++ 2008 format
  8. So closed VC++ 2010 (without saving any changes to 'wx_dll.sln'!!!) and started VC++ 2008
  9. Repeated Step 5 - this time, after saying "Yes, all" (which is btw. not possible in VC++2010 - asks separately for each file) all 20 projects have been converted and loaded.
  10. Saved the solution (Ctrl-S) and closed VC++ 2008
    (be careful to really save 'wx_dll-sln' and not only the first (adv) project!!!)
  11. Ran VC++ 2010 and opened 'D:\Program Files\wxWidgets-2.8.12\build\msw\wx_dll.sln'.
  12. Now no question followed, but the "Visual Studio Converting Assistent" window opened
  13. Here is the list of the projects to convert:
    Zu konvertierende Projektmappe: wx_dll
    Projekte:
    adv
    aui
    base
    core
    dbgrid
    gl
    html
    media
    net
    odbc
    qa
    richtext
    wxexpat
    wxjpeg
    wxpng
    wxregex
    wxtiff
    wxzlib
    xml
    xrc
  14. After starting the Assistent all 20 projects were converted without any error message. It also generates a report file 'D:\Program Files\wxWidgets-2.8.12\build\msw\UpgradeLog.XML'
  15. Saved (CTRL + S) the solution (once again watch out to save 'wx_dll.sln')
  16. Switched to 'DLL Unicode Debug' in the symbol bar
    and added the GDIPlus.lib as described. The list looks as follows:
    wxtiffd.lib
    wxjpegd.lib
    wxpngd.lib
    wxzlibd.lib
    wxregexud.lib
    wxexpatd.lib
    winmm.lib
    comctl32.lib
    rpcrt4.lib
    wsock32.lib
    odbc32.lib
    ..\..\lib\vc_dll\wxbase28ud.lib
    GDIPlus.lib
  17. Did the same for 'DLL Unicode Release' and saved the solution
  18. Still on 'DLL Unicode Release' started debugging (F5)
  19. Prompted a window saying that the following projects are out-dated:
    wxexpat - DLL Unicode Release Win32
    wxzlib - DLL Unicode Release Win32
    wxregex - DLL Unicode Release Win32
    wxtiff - DLL Unicode Release Win32
    wxpng - DLL Unicode Release Win32
    wxjpeg - DLL Unicode Release Win32
    base - DLL Unicode Release Win32
    core - DLL Unicode Release Win32
    adv - DLL Unicode Release Win32
    and asked to build them -> Yes
  20. After the process is finished
    9> Code wird generiert...

Re: Development Debugging Environment - Setup Help

Gunther...
I wonder why you insist on making your life hard when it can be so easy if you followed the recommended way to do things...
BTW, it's kind of obvious that you can't start a DLL - it's not a program, it's just a library...

Pavel

Correction:
In Step 18 you did not have to press 'F5' (for debugging) but rather 'F7' (for creating the solution)!!!

Sorry - my bad.

When you do so, all went fine ... (just the 1 error for the odbc which can be ignored).

Pavel, just one last question:
[1] In the file wxWidgets-2.8.12\build\msw\config.vc in your settings the options
- SHARED = 0
- USE_OPENGL = 0
- USE_GDIPLUS = 0
are also enabled (set to '1'). Does it matter or not?

Gunther

Re: Development Debugging Environment - Setup Help

Gunther...
SHARED is sure not needed, you set it by selecting the build configuration.
The rest should probably be set to
USE_OPENGL = 1
USE_GDIPLUS = 1

Re: Development Debugging Environment - Setup Help

Pavel is right, some of the troubles were from not following the thread exactly, however when it came to wxwidgets, I installed them twice I believe, then we found some picky Path Environment issues like I had put a ":" [colon] separator instead of a ";" [semi-colon] separator and could not see it very well. Pavel found it. The we tried to compile and were still having problems with wxWidgets because of some module. So Pavel sent me his wxWidgets compressed via Dropbox and that worked. Please let us know how it is going, and give us details, we'd very much like to help you get this environment going. ---Suddenly there is more thread above!!!! Yiikes I better read.

Re: Development Debugging Environment - Setup Help

Pavel:

Quote: Now I am having trouble figuring out where origin/master is located.
The "master" repository is https://github.com/OpenCPN/OpenCPN (the Git URL: git://github.com/OpenCPN/OpenCPN.git) - but it actually does not mean that it has to be called "origin" on your machine as it depends on the order you added remote repositories... Brainfood: Git Reference

Whenever you are not sure what's what, use

Quote:
git remote -v
in your local repository to see from where you actually are pulling the code...
And about
Quote:
git branch -a

Quote:
git remote -v
Response:
Quote:
C:\Data\..\opencpn-git>git remote -v
origin git://github.com/OpenCPN/OpenCPN.git (fetch)
origin git://github.com/OpenCPN/OpenCPN.git (push)
ptizef git://github.com/Ptizef/OpenCPN.git (fetch)

sean git://github.com/seandepagnier/OpenCPN.git (fetch)
sean git://github.com/seandepagnier/OpenCPN.git (push)
Just what I was looking for!

Re: Development Debugging Environment - Setup Help

Pavel's Post #17 Grib_enhancements Thread: Grib_enhancements was set up as a separate Git "Branch" by Sean so that he could make necessary changes to the base opencpn program needed for Grib_pi and Weather_routing_pi. In order to compile these files for us to test them it was necessary to
1. Establish a local repository git clone
2. git fetch --all
3. git pull sean grib_enhancements (Since I was not making changes to code)
4. git checkout sean/grib_enhancements
5. Then in MSVC Build Debug and Release

This is an instructive way to think about Branches. Now what has happened is yesterday, Dave pulled and merged Sean's work into the 'Master' so now the master has the 'hooks'' required for this updated version of grib_pi. Also the grib_pi.dll has been updated to the new 'merged' version of Sean's grib_enhancements_pi and Jean Pierre's New_Grib_pi. So that we can all be working from and on the same version in the 'Master'

Also see Pavel's Post #20 about debugging plugins
and Post #21 about "Remotes" where he uses

Pavel, I am almost ready to write a description about compiling plugins, just need some time.

Re: Development Debugging Environment - Setup Help

See Post #148 for an example of Git Push, if you are writing code and want to share the code with another repository (I thought this was two step process, because someone on the other end had to 'merge' it, but this does not appear true, what actually happens is a new branch is made, I think.)

Re: Development Debugging Environment - Setup Help

Rick...
Actually getting code to the master repository is a two step process for most of the contributors, as they can't push there themselves and have to send us a pull request with their changes. More about it at https://help.github.com/articles/using-pull-requests

Re: Development Debugging Environment - Setup Help

Trying to git clone a remote directory and it fails:

Quote:
git clone https://github.com/Ptizef/OpenCPN/tree/NEW_GRIB.git
Cloning into 'NEW_GRIB'...
fatal: https://github.com/Ptizef/OpenCPN/tr....git/info/refs not found:
did you run git update-server-info on the server?
Thomas (Cagney) Try:
Quote:
git clone -b NEW_GRIB https://github.com/Ptizef/OpenCPN.git
It worked.

Thanks Pavel,

Here is a more visual representation of the process with remote repositories which may help us.
