Paraview-superbuild: no "paraview.exe" binary on Windows 11

I am currently trying to build paraview-superbuild on Windows 11. The branch name is “v5.11.1”. Here is my installed environments:

  1. Visual Studio 2022
  2. ninja

After I cloned the repo of paraview-superbuild, I created a folder “pv_build” at the same level of the paraview-superbuild. In the “x64 Native Tools Command Prompt for VS 2022”, I executed this command:

cmake …\paraview-superbuild -GNinja -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=C:\Users\test\code\pv_install -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release
ninja install

I can find the compiled pvserver.exe, pvrenderserver.exe and pvdataserver.exe, but in either the build or install folder, I can not find the paraview.exe binary.

Update: I also tried to add -DPARAVIEW_BUILD_EDITION=RENDERING for cmake, but no luck.

You need to enable the Qt5 project, so it will build the gui.


still the same, no luck. But I’ve already got a paraview.exe through manual compilation of paraview. I will close this post. Thank you all the same.
