In an effort to become current
with the compiling the most current
version of OpenCPN
(currrently v 4.1.427) I have uninstalled Poedit, Cmake and wxWidgets 2.8.12 and reinstalled the newest versions. The after about a dozen hangups/reboots/tries where my machine was literally hung up such that I was unable to get it to install and unable to remove it even with Revo! So I just gave up and left the computer on overnight, after having tried to start VC Express 2013 for Windows Desktop
and eventually the next morning nothing seemed to happen except it was shut down. I tried starting VC Express 2013 again and it hung up again. I then checked Windows Update for some reason and found an update for VC Express 2013 and was home free. Weird process.
Next I went through Pavel's entire Compiling Windows Compiling - Windows | Official OpenCPN Homepage
and made sure that I had all the path details correct, compiled wxWidgets for debug and release successfully and finally rebooted.
The next step was to try to compile Opencpn
, from the "Developer Command Prompt for VS 2013 and after deleting C:\Users\Rick\Documents\GitHub\OpenCPN\build\cmake .chache.txt and running "cmake .."
Unfortunately there are errors with some Gettext problem and I think it is because I do not have a current version installed, but there does not seem to be any reference in the Developer's manual to GetText now.
Now I see that I should have run
cmake -T v120_xp ..
so delete cmake.cache.txt and cmakefiles directory and try again.
Please see the two attached files.
I guess I won't be compiling tonight or until I figure this out.
