Unhappy opencpn windows cmake error

Hi, I am a new user of opencpn. I am trying to compile opencpn in windows 32 bits, and I couldnīt succeed.

What I have:

Windows 7
MVS 2008
cmake 2.8

opencpn 3.1.7 08/09/2012

wxwidget 2.8.12 - wx_dll.dsw
I have successfully compiled as "compiling windows instructions" obtanied in opencpn site.

I have been changed setup.h and and put wxWidgets_LIB_DIR pointing to vc_dll directory as recommended, but, when I start cmake, it fill my sources and directories, but again,


As compiling instructions, the recomendations are to ignore the error, to click on the generate button and the solution should be created in my directory.

But is not true. The directory is empty.

I do not understand what is wrong. Could you help me, please?

Re: opencpn windows cmake error

The instructions say:

"VC++ 2008 Express Edition:
If you don't intend to debug the WX sources, you can skip this step alltogether."

So start with getting yourself Visual Studio 2010 express.
Then compile wxWidgets using the "Compile from command line (recommended and faster)" method.

Then setup the Visual Studio 10 solution with cmake as per the instructions, and open it in VS2010.

This should give you smoother sailing...
