Post More detailed instructions for CMake and Visual Studio

Hi Stefano,

I am trying to build the program on Windows 64-bit, but am running into some problems. I am a complete novice with all this, but I have installed CMake and Visual Studio 2010 Express. I have tried to follow the WIKI instructions, but get a little lost around the CMake part. Please see the attached screenshot, where I have tried to define the source code and binaries (I tried to follow the image in the Linux build section above). Upon pressing configure I get an error message, shown briefly in the screenshot but the full extent of which is:

CMake Error at C:/Program Files (x86)/CMake 2.8/share/cmake-2.8/Modules/CMakeTestCCompiler.cmake:61 (message):
The C compiler "C:/Program Files (x86)/Microsoft Visual Studio
10.0/VC/bin/cl.exe" is not able to compile a simple test program.

It fails with the following output:

You probably know this from looking above, but the NiftyRec folder is located on my desktop.

Thanks again for any help you can provide!

Hi Paul,

CMake is a cross platform build system, it generates compiler specific configuration files (e.g. a VisualStudio project). But before that, it checks if the compiler that you have selected works. In your case CMake says that the compiler does not work. Pasting the massage on Google search, it appears to be an issue with access privilege to 'cl.exe' (one of the tools of Visual Studio) http://stackoverflow.com/questions/14590947/cmake-configuring-fails-cl-exe-is-not-able-to-compile-a-simple-test-program. Hopefully you will find the solution with Google.
I guess that you will find a similar error message if you open VisualStudio, create a new basic C or C++ project and click on the build button.

Hi Stefano,

I found the solution on Google, with the answer on the page you pasted, so thank you for that. The next problem is shown in the screenshot, after I press the configure button (shown in the screenshot). The full error message, again, is:

Thank you very much for 'walking me through' this!

There is another problem with the installation of VisualStudio. It might be a permission problem again (I wander why the pemission on cl.exe was wrong).
The issue is discussed here: http://cmake.3232098.n2.nabble.com/Visual-Studio-10-compiler-identification-unknown-td7585120.html. It is suggested to to reinstall VisualStudio. Perhaps CMake should be installed after VisualStudio and not before (just a guess). Also, someone has observed that the command line version of CMake works for them when experiencing such problem.

Once VisualStudio and CMake are ready, I can actually walk you through building NiftyRec!

I have reinstalled Visual Studio 2010 (C++ I am guessing), with CMake installed afterwards, but the same problem remains. Can you explain how the command line version of CMake works? I have a 'Visual Studio Command Prompt' window open, but do not know how to get cmake running from there.

Stefano helped me tremendously with this. All of my problems were regarding things before the installation of NiftyRec. Eventually I decided that there were too many things to fix regarding my CMake and Visual Studio installations that it would be better building from source on Linux rather than Windows. I recommend this to anyone starting a new build, the process is much simpler.

Thanks Paul,
It is indeed somewhat easier to build the code from source under Linux and MacOS.
I am looking at setting up BuildBot to automate the building of binary installers for multiple architectures, hopefully it will happen soon.

Dear Stephano,
I have the same problem as Paul. My machine is 64 bits and doesn't recognize the mex functions.
I tried to compile with Cmake but without success. Do you have a pre-compiled .exe for 64 bits.
Unfortunately, I don't have any Linux nor MacOS available as Paul suggested.
Thank you for your help.

Hi Stephano and Paul,
I succded getting a Linux machine with Ubuntu. After running "ccmake .." I try to configure but I have the following message:

MATLAB_INCLUDE=MATLAB_INCLUDE-NOTFOUND
MATLAB_LIBRARY=MATLAB_MEX_LIBRARY-NOTFOUND;MATLAB_MX_LIBRARY-NOTFOUND;MATLAB_E
NG_LIBRARY-NOTFOUND
MATLAB_LIBRARIES=
CMake Error at CMake/matlab/LibFindMacros.cmake:74 (message):
Required library MATLAB NOT FOUND.
Install the library (dev version) and try again. If the library is already
installed, use ccmake to set the missing variables manually.
Call Stack (most recent call first):
CMake/matlab/FindMATLAB.cmake:56 (libfind_process)
Matlab/nifty_rec/CMakeLists.txt:19 (FIND_PACKAGE)

I don't know how to install this missing library. I have to precise that I'm a beginner.
I would be very happy if you can help me advancing with this problem,
Thank you very much in advance
Farouk

Hi Nouizi,

I also get the same error as yours.
I have solved the error by edit FindMATLAB.cmake file in folder CMake/matlab. Check line 7 and 11, is the registry path is correctly refer to your Matlab installation folder? And then check if mex.h and libmex.lib files are contained in those folders. In my case, my libmex.lib file is in folder '/extern/lib/win64/microsoft'.

Best regards,
Rarasmaya
