[gecode-users] compilation without cygwin

Gecode on Windows does not support static libraries, you have to use DLLs

Thanks Victor! It almost works. :)

I generated VS 10.0 build files with cmake, and I could build static gecode
libs with it, which is exactly what I need. But I have a problem with
linking these libs with my application. This build process generetes only a
support/config.hpp file. I copied this file into gecode/support dir which I
founded in the downloaded source of gecode, and I used this dir (gecode dir)
as the includes


My program compiles this way, but during linkage I get "cannot open file
'GecodeSupport-4-1-0-d-x86.lib'" message, which is no wonder cause the
builded gecode libs has named like "gecodesupport.lib". I tried to rename
the .lib files (concat version, architecture and r/d information) and also
hacked the support/auto-link.hpp file, but no success, linker complains
about bad lib format.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,

You can build Gecode with cl/Visual C++ using CMake. This doesn't require

Thank you, but I don't think so.

I'd like to compile the gecode itself. In Section 2.6.2 it is mentioned,
that "For Windows, we require Cygwin environment...", but I'd like to
compile gecode without it.


Thank you,

Is there someone who tried to compile gecode under windows without using
cygwin? I'd like to compile it with cl natively somehow. Is it possible? 


Seems like section 2.3.1 of the following document is what you are looking
