I try to compile PV superbuild master branch from x64 Command prompt for VS2017.
It seems to compile successfully but I cannot find paraview.exe in build directory.
to build it I used:
cmake -G Ninja -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release …/paraview-superbuild
Should I change something?
Thank you in advance
Thank you for your help, for some reason Ninja gets stuck after downloading qt5, when I rerun ninja, it starts downloading it again, with my internet connection it is suffering, is there any tag to use downloaded packages instead of re-downloading them?
You can download the qt binaries yourself from qt, install them and then add -DUSE_SYSTEM_qt5:BOOL=ON
Hello Michal, Sorry for delay with feedback, it worked, but for some reason I have encountered many problems, didn’t have enough time to solve them fast.
Finally I did it, the solution was:
- Downloaded and installed qt 5.9 (https://download.qt.io/official_releases/qt/5.9/5.9.0/qt-opensource-windows-x86-5.9.0.exe)
During installation selected: “msvc2017 64 bit” and “Sources”
(I am not sure if I needed Sources, selected it, just in case)
- Added environmental variable to path: C:\Qt\Qt5.9.0\5.9\msvc2017_64\bin
- cmake -G Ninja -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release -DENABLE_qt5=ON -DUSE_SYSTEM_qt5=ON …\paraview-superbuild
Thank you again for your support!
