I am trying to compile ParaView on my Windows machine and get an error from Catalyst’s dummy project. Compiling the same code on my Linux machine works without hickups.
Here’s what I am working with:
- Microsoft Visual Studio 16.7.0 Preview 3.1
- Windows SDK version 10.0.18362.0 to target Windows 10.0.19042
- Up-to-date with release branch as of yesterday
The error that I am getting comes from
dummy.cxx in the vtkcatalyst project which only contains
#error "this file should not be compiled!"
so I suppose it does what it’s supposed to. I have tried to disable Catalyst and its dependencies in CMake but that only leads to CMake not being able to complete the configuration step.
I am sure that I am missing something obvious but what is it?
