Sorry for the delay. I went on vacation a few days after emailing
about this issue then forgot to check back when I returned.. If I
click on a .sln it picks the wrong version of Visual Studio as well so
this is not a CMake issue.

[CMake] CMake 3.7.0-r2 Open Project sometimes picks wrong version of Visual Studio

2016-11-03 Thread John Drescher
I opened a project in cmake-gui using the open project button from a
vc 2010 build of a project. The open project opened the project in
Visual Studio 2010. Later I opened the same project but a different
build tree for Visual Studio 2013 CMake-gui had all of the correct
information for the Visual Studio 2013 build but open project tried to
open the Visual Studio 2013 solution in Visual Studio 2010 instead of
the expected Visual Studio 2013. Is there a way to get/force this
feature to reliably use the correct ide?

Thanks,
John

Re: [CMake] Multi-platform visual studio projects

2015-02-27 Thread John Drescher
 I have been successful with

 Src\build.32 and src\build.64 so that on svn update effects both.

 The problem, for my automated build flow, I was hoping to make a mix, 32/64 
 installer.. it’s a lot harder to do with two completely separate build trees 
 :(

For this I just make separate installers. I use a naming convention
such that win32 / win64 is part of the name of the generated nsis
executable installer.

 Is it possible with cmake, to build a VS 2013, win32 and win64 vsproj

 If not, I understand, then I have a follow on question..


No create 2 independent trees. I keep the source in a separate tree
also. For example I have my source code in

x:\CMakeBased\Libraries\ITK-4.7.0
x:\CMakeBased\Libraries\VTK-5.10.2
...

x:\CMakeBased\Qt\LungAnalysis
x:\CMakeBased\Qt\StudyManager

...

Where Libraries are source code libraries like ITK, VTK, GDCM, DCMTK ...

And LungAnalysis, StudyManager  ... are applications written by me.


Then the build tress look like

x:\64bit\VC.100\Libraries\ITK-4.7.0
x:\64bit\VC.100\Libraries\VTK-5.10.2
x:\64bit\VC.100\Qt\LungAnalysis

x:\64bit\VC.120\Libraries\VTK-5.10.2
x:\64bit\VC.120\Qt\LungAnalysis

...

x:\32bit\VC.100\Libraries\ITK-4.7.0

Re: [CMake] CMAKE changing Visual Studio Settings

2014-07-21 Thread John Drescher
 So CMAKE can't control the options int he *.user files I guess :-\?  Would a
 potential workaround be to find a command line tool that can edit these and
 run it as a post-build script?

CMake gives you the functionality needed to edit these via your own
script. I mean reading and writing files replacing text.

You can also do this if you reset the cache in cmake-gui.

Re: [CMake] Are the [Project name]_SOURCE_DIR variables stored in the cache ?

2014-05-01 Thread John Drescher
 I thought they probably were.  My question was really if the behaviour that
 results from that was desirable.  I can't see any reason why they should be
 cached as they aren't user configurable variables.  Would it break anything
 badly if they were not stored in the cache ?  It would result in more
 consistent behaviour IMHO.


Executing

cmake .

would fail in the bin folder if it had no way to know where the source
folder is.

 What I am saying is that project(foo) should internally execute the

 add_subdirectory() for that project.  Currently in that situation it fails
 the first time you run cmake but works as expected on subsequent runs of
 cmake, which I think is odd behaviour.


I am saying making this change to not cache the source folder would break

cmake binfolder

and

cmake --build buildfolder

and several other commands that have worked this way for years.

 If CMAKE_BINARY_DIR were not cached, yes. But I don't think not caching that
 is being suggested. It's not clear to me why the *per-project* flavors need
 to be cached?

Re: [CMake] Linking Error with Visual Studio 2013 x64

2014-04-17 Thread John Drescher
 Is there some option to export automatically some methods without using
 __declspec(dllexport)?

 No. There are workarounds like in
 http://stackoverflow.com/questions/225432/export-all-symbols-when-creating-a-dll
 but it's too much work.
 Basically you want to define a macro that resolves to
 __declspec(dllexport) when building the DLL and to nothing when only using
 libraries headers.


CMake module GenerateExportHeader can help a little with this.

Re: [CMake] Fwd: Visual Studio command line from CMake

2014-01-09 Thread John Drescher
 Why not just write your own batch ('buildit.bat') file that does:

call vcvarsall.bat
nmake

 (or whatever the command to build in the VS command prompt is...)

 And then your command to build is:

C:/full/path/to/buildit.bat

 It's presumably in a Windows-specific chunk of your CMakeLists anyway, so
 that should work fairly simply.

I think the part of problem would be figuring out what vcvarsall.bat
to run especially if you have more than 1 version of Visual Studio.

Re: [CMake] Forwarding parameters to cmake through cmake-gui

2013-11-01 Thread John Drescher
 +1 for updating cmake-gui to work equally to ccmake

 But my opinion regarding CMAKE_MODULE_PATH is different. The problem is that
 alot of the default find-modules don't work because the dependency is not in
 the location where the find-module expects it. Currently there are only two
 workarounds:
 - Change the find-module directly so it works in the local environment
 - Change the CMakeLists.txt of the project - which is bad because it's just
 a LOCAL problem and the CMakeLists should be mostly independent of the
 environment.

 With the command-line option it's possible to setup a custom cmake-gui batch
 file once per computer which sets e.g. the CMAKE_MODULE_PATH to a directory
 with customized find modules. If one doesn't want to use custom find modules
 that's fine too but I think everyone should have the option to place
 dependent libraries wherever she/he wants.


For these kind of things I use environment variables in my
CMakeLists.txt. If the environment variable is set I use it. If not I
use the default behavior.

Re: [CMake] Visual Studio 10 compiler identification unknown

2013-08-06 Thread John Drescher
 Configuration of VTK with cmake-gui was ok. Don't know how it was fixed.

 Does it help if I send the output of the minimal test case?


I suspect deleting the cache in cmake-gui then running cmake-gui from
the windows shortcut will break it again.

BTW, I usually run cmake-gui from a visual studio command prompt. The
reason for this is I use more than visual studio compiler and also use
32 and 64 bit in different build trees so I have command prompts with
different environment variables set that help cmake to find the
correct libraries for the build tree that I am currently using.

Re: [CMake] Multiple versions of ITK in one build?

On Tue, May 28, 2013 at 10:16 AM, Zamir Khan zamir.k...@gmail.com wrote:
 We have a project where multiple modules rely on ITK. Most modules have been
 upgraded to ITK 4.31, but one still relies on ITK 3.20 and it would take a
 significant effort to upgrade it. In the meantime, is there a way for us to
 keep these modules under a single top-level CMake and have them use their
 respective versions of ITK?

 We thought we could just try to overwrite the ITK_DIR variable in the
 appropriate place, but our first naive implementation of this did not work.

 Just wondering if someone has done this and whether it is possible (before
 we dive deeper).


On windows I have several completely separate build trees with their
own environment. This way I can build for different compiler versions,
32/64 bit and different versions of libraries like this. Inside the
root of each build tree there is a link to the appropriate Visual
Studio command prompt that has its default folder set to the build
tree root. Also in the root there is a batch file that sets quite a
few _DIR environment variables to help cmake find the correct compiled
libraries. This has worked well for the 5 or so years that I have done
it this way. I do not use INSTALL targets so none of the binaries end
up in Program Files.

Re: [CMake] custom NSIS installer

2013-05-06 Thread John Drescher
 It states that...

 To start work on a custom NSIS script, simply create a file (or copy) into
 your module path (e.g. CPACK_MODULE_PATH) called NSIS.template.in.

 Checking the cmake documentation, there is no predefined variable named
 CPACK_MODULE_PATH.

 I could find a NSIS.template.in. in the cmake's (main cmake install
 directory) modules directory. I believe cmake would not ask me to modify
 this file, as each project's nsis template requirement would be different.

 could you please let me know the correct location where I should create the
 template file?

 Thanks,
   Lloyd


Use List append to append your local module path to the
CMAKE_MODULE_PATH then put your custom NSIS.template.in in that folder

LIST(APPEND CMAKE_MODULE_PATH ${PROJECT_SOURCE_DIR}/CMake/Modules)

So in my project root I have the following folder:

CMake\Modules

and it contains my customized

NSIS.template.in

Re: [CMake] Cannot restore timestamp error on Windows

2013-04-24 Thread John Drescher
 I installed it and it ran one time and I didn't see the error, but it's
 intermittent so that's not definitive.  Unfortunately one of my cmake
 files failed (later on; this is a cmake file from a smaller
 sub-project):

 CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:190 (TARGET_LINK_LIBRARIES):
 Error evaluating generator expression:

   
 $TARGET_PROPERTY:$$CONFIG:DEBUG:php5ts_debug,INTERFACE_INCLUDE_DIRECTORIES

 $TARGET_PROPERTY:tgt,prop expression requires a non-empty target 
 name.

 I have to back out the upgrade until I can figure out what this error
 means: there's no reference to INTERFACE_INCLUDE_DIRECTORIES anywhere in
 my CMakeLists.txt and this project is not one I'm familiar with.


I have seen this as well with the 2.8.11-rc releases. I am not exactly
what causes that.

Also if you are going to use ITK then you need to use a finder for

 at creating a solution for this? I suspect there is some great design issue
 that prevents implementing it in CMake. There are several platform and
 generator specific options already inside CMake, why can't this be another
 one?

I believe the current method of forcing the developer to use different
build trees for 64bit and 32bit works very well. I have used this for
almost 5 years now of development under Visual Studio 2005 to 2012.

Also there are reasons why this will not work in the current design.
Outside of the few CMAKE variables that are set for the compiler that
would be wrong the biggest problem I believe would be libraries. You
can not link a x64 library with a 32 bit program so CMake would have
to track what libraries were x64 versus 32bit which may seem like just
adding additional configurations over Release,Debug ... would solve
but that will not work with the way finders work. Also I do not
believe CMake supports this configuration on any other platform.

Re: [CMake] CMAKE_SYSTEM_PROCESSOR says x86 on Win64

2013-02-21 Thread John Drescher
On Thu, Feb 21, 2013 at 2:46 PM, Martin Koller martin.kol...@etm.at wrote:
 Hi all,

 I found an old cmake bug entry (see below) for the problem I have:

 I downloaded and installed the 32bit cmake exe on a 64bit windows
 and wanted to build our project as 64bit executable. However in our
 cmake files (which are used for Linux, Solaris, windows) we often check
 for the current processor architecture we build for as we need to link
 against external libraries which are stored in different subdirs etc.

 Problem is: as cmake is a 32bit exe, wincrap always returns a value
 of x86 even on a 64bit machine as described here:
 http://blogs.msdn.com/b/david.wang/archive/2006/03/26/howto-detect-process-bitness.aspx

 In brief - they say to detect the current CPU shall be done as:

 IF PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE == amd64 OR
PROCESSOR_ARCHITEW6432 == amd64 THEN
// OS is 64bit
 ELSE
// OS is 32bit
 END IF

 I think this should really be fixed in cmake directly to be able
 to use this cmake variable in a true platform independant way
 (at least it already works perfectly for all other platforms)
 and the cmake doc suggest that it tells me excactly that:
 CMAKE_SYSTEM_PROCESSOR: The name of the CPU CMake is building for.
 which is not correct in this case.


Here is what works for me:

if (CMAKE_SIZEOF_VOID_P MATCHES 8)
set( PROJECT_ARCH x86_64 )
else(CMAKE_SIZEOF_VOID_P MATCHES 8)
set( PROJECT_ARCH x86 )
endif(CMAKE_SIZEOF_VOID_P MATCHES 8)

Re: [CMake] unable to view file properties using CMAKE 2.8.7 in VS2010

2013-01-31 Thread John Drescher
 Hey there. I created a bare minimum cmake project



 ADD_LIBRARY (foo foo.c)



 When I open that solution in VS2010 and right click on foo.c and select
 properties, the properties dialog comes up but when I try to view each
 property (C/C++  General, Optimization, Preprocessor, etc…), nothing
 displays. The view is literally blank. No fields, just white. If I make the
 same project using the visual studio 2010 wizard instead of cmake, I am able
 to see properties.



 Is there something I need to enable in CMAKE to see these properties or is
 this a bug?


Properties work for my projects in VisualStudio 2010 for me when using
CMake-2.8.10.2 to generate my projects.

Re: [CMake] How to handle RelWithDebInfo and MinSizeRel when not built?

2013-01-18 Thread John Drescher
 The suggestion in the bug report looks somewhat reasonable to me, but then
 again, we don't actually create separate debug info, and the 'Release'
 configuration would be no different to the 'RelWithDebInfo' configuration,
 so it's sort of a 'lie'.

 The real need for it though is probably that it allows the downstream of Qt
 to use RelWithDebInfo themselves?

 The alternative way to do that would be to set the MAP_IMPORTED_CONFIG*
 properties. I'm not sure whether I should advise that and close the bug
 report, or should I implement the suggested change.

 Any ideas?

As a windows programmer who regularly uses CMake generated
RelWithDebInfo targets with Qt4 since 2008 I believe the behavior of
using the Release versions for RelWithDebugInfo is fine (and actually
preferred for me). If I need to debug deeply into a Qt problem I will
switch to use the Debug build however most of the time for itk or vtk
I want to use RelWithDebInfo to debug since these tend to be slow to
Debug in Debug mode that is when I use dicom images that are similar
resolution to what my programs typically use.

Re: [CMake] [vtkusers] Fwd: CMAKE_MAKE_PROGRAM is not set - Win7 and Visual Studio 10

2012-12-12 Thread John Drescher
 The question is: what is the location of the make program?

 If I remember correctly, on Windows XP, I did not have to install MinGW to
 compile VTK. Just Visual Studio Express was required.

 Do I have to install MinGW?

Not unless you want to move your development to MinGW.

Or is it provided by VS?


This should be devenv.com or msbuild.exe (located in your system .NET
location). However I believe the express version of VisualStudio does
not work with MSBuild so make it the location of devenv.com


 A more general question, what is the recommended way to compile VTK on
 Windows?

I am not sure about recommended however I build vtk from the command
line via a Visual Studio command prompt.

I first configure VTK to turn off shared libraries because I want to
avoid having to copy dlls around.

cmake --build PathToBuildFolderForVTK --config Debug
cmake --build PathToBuildFolderForVTK --config Release
cmake --build PathToBuildFolderForVTK --config RelWithDebInfo

After that I do not install VTK. Since the INSTALL will only install a
single configuration. I instead point my own projects that use cmake
to use the vtk build folder as VTK_DIR and CMake is happy to set it up
so that my debug configurations will use debug vtk libs and my release
applications will use release vtk libs.

In vtk-5.X you needed to enable VTK_USE_GUISUPPORT then that gave you

 It's fairly easy to make both, VS and cl.exe, utilise multiple cores,
 even using command line. The problem is that build configurations like
 NMAKE require significant gymnastics:

 http://public.kitware.com/pipermail/cmake/2012-September/052116.html

 It is easier with VS projects:

 http://www.cmake.org/pipermail/cmake/2009-April/028669.html

My comment was even though it will do multithreaded builds with VS
projects for some projects it will build at very low CPU utilization
for long periods while other projects it maxes out at 100% on all 12
cores.

Re: [CMake] How to get Visual Studio to use more than a single core for compiling

2012-11-27 Thread John Drescher
 Right, perhaps complex inter-project dependencies halt the processes.

I believe this is part of the reason. Projects like ITK with hundreds
of small utilities tend to utilize the cores after the dependent
libraries are built however my code that has very few utilities and
significantly more inter-project dependencies do not tend to make good
use of the cores.

On top of that it appears that VS building slows down significantly as
the # of include folders greatly increases. This cuts into CPU
utilization when the OS searches your includes for your header files.
In the past I have tried to get around the inter-project dependency
problem by building Release, Debug and RelWithDebInfo in 3 separate
processes only to find that on some builds this did not fix the issue
because the OS spent an a large portion of the build time searching
the include paths. I even tried to stop this by placing the projects
and includes on a RAM disk but even that did not totally fix the
issue.

 AUX_SOURCE_DIRECTORY(. SRC)
 ADD_LIBRARY(test  SHARED  ${FAN_SRC})
 LINK_DIRECTORIES(${ACE_LIB_DIR})

 2.if i use LINK_LIBRARIES() instead of TARGET_LINK_LIBRARIES(),this may
 work,why ??

 AUX_SOURCE_DIRECTORY(. SRC)
 LINK_DIRECTORIES(${ACE_LIB_DIR})
 LINK_LIBRARIES(ACE)
 ADD_LIBRARY(test SHARED ${FAN_SRC})

 3.Seems Windows will give priority to link static library,but  i need to
 link dynamic library in my projects ,how could i do ??

 4.how do TARGET_LINK_LIBRARIES() and LINK_LIBRARIES() determine what kind of
 library to link  ?  DO i need to use LINK_LIBRARIES(ACE.dll) instead of
 LINK_LIBRARIES(ACE)  in  Windows ?


You do not link to DLLs on windows. You link to import libraries when
using dlls. During the dll creation it should create a .lib along with
the .dll.

 Except that you have CMAKE_SYSTEM_PROCESSOR == x86 (event for Win64
 generators) in your CMake files along with all search paths which sometimes
 very inconvenient.

I am not sure that has ever caused me a problem on any of the 64 bit
applications I have written. The only problem I had with CMake was for
a while my x64 applications were being installed (by nsis) in Program
Files (x86) instead of Program Files. I have since fixed my
settings for NSIS and this has worked for over a year for me..

Re: [CMake] cmake on Windows x64

2012-10-15 Thread John Drescher
 Having CMAKE_SYSTEM_PROCESSOR be x86 for a 64-bit build is very 
 inconvenient when detecting machine-dependent compiler flags, constructing 
 directory names for outputs based on configuration, configuring third party 
 search directories, etc.  It's always possible to work around (among other 
 things, one can consult the generator string for Visual Studio builds, though 
 not for MinGW builds) but that doesn't mean it shouldn't be better behaved - 
 it's entirely reasonable to assume that CMAKE_SYSTEM_PROCESSOR should be the 
 target processor for the build, especially so that you can have similar 
 behavior on Windows, Linux, and Mac.  Though as previously discussed I also 
 have the opposite problem on Linux when compiling for 32-bit CPU on 64-bit OS.


I see. I have always compared the size of the pointer for this..

Re: [CMake] cmake on Windows x64

2012-10-12 Thread John Drescher
 I noticed that there is cmake binary package for Windows x64. Should a
 32-bit cmake (under syswow6432) be adequate for all cmake tasks? If
 not, what is the right way to build cmake for 64-bit. I tried building
 it on a 32-bit build server using the 64 bit generator (this build
 server routinely does 64-bit cross compiles). However, apparently some
 of the products of the 64-bit build are run to generate sources that
 are built by other parts of the build. This being a 32-bit box does
 not allow that and hence the cross-compile to 64-bit failed.


32 bit cmake works fine for 64 bit builds on x64. I use this almost
every day for the last 3+ years..

 I want to define a single variable in a top-level CMakeLists.txt and
 use it in multiple CMakeLists.txt in sub-directories to specify
 target_link_libraries for executables built in these subdirectories. I
 tried defining a custom variable in the root CMakeLists.txt and using
 it in others but its value doesn't seem to be used.

 Tried something:

 src/CMakeLists.txt
 
 set (MYPROJ_LINK_LIBS, iconv perfstat mylib)


 src/cmd/dsbv/CMakeLists.txt
 --
 target_link_libraries(${PROJECT_NAME}, ${MYPROJ_LINK_LIBS})

 What's the right way to achieve this?


Get rid of the comma in both statements. Also get rid of the quotes in the set.

set (MYPROJ_LINK_LIBS iconv perfstat mylib)
target_link_libraries(${PROJECT_NAME} ${MYPROJ_LINK_LIBS})

 Hi,

 I have a Windows XP build setup with Visual Studio 2008 SP1 and
 Windows SDK 6. I have set up a CMake project for a source base that is
 built on Linux, Solaris, AIX and Windows. So far I have managed to get
 the Windows 32-bit build going but cannot make the x64 cross-compile
 work.

 It seems that CMake generates 32-bit builds even when I initialize the
 64-bit build system (vcvarsall.bat x64). What is the correct way to
 set such a build up.


I do not believe Visual Studio will build x64 targets on 32 bit
windows. The first issue would be installing the x64 compiler. However
I could be wrong.

 Building FLTK 1.1.7  works fine (No error!). But Cmake fails
 to generate a project for InsightApplication. First, it did not include
 an entry for FLTK_FLUID_EXECUTABLE. When I add an entry
 manually, All error disappear except for this one:

Re: [CMake] [Cmake] Retrieve all runtime dependencies

 Hi,

 Is there any way in CMake to get a list of all binaries related to one
 target?
 What I mean is that assuming I have a target, say a library lib_a, that
 depends on lib_b and lib_c which are either SHARED or MODULE (so they
 produce a .dll/.so),
 is there a way or macro to get a string with the paths of each binary
 output:
.../.../.../lib_a.dll
.../.../.../lib_b.dll
.../.../.../lib_c.dll
 on windows, assuming I only provide the target name libi_a?

 My first thinking was that as CMake produce project files that have all
 these information, then it should be possible to get this list in some way.
 However I'm a bit lost on where to find the necessary information, in a
 generic way.
 Also, I think the build mode should be provided to any function or macro
 that would provide such a list.

 It would be extremely useful (to me) to get such a list, to apply some
 target's post-build scripts to these binaries.
 The simpler alternative is to have such list hand-written outside of CMake
 scripts, making the information located at more than one locations.


take a look at the GetPrerequisites cmake module.

Re: [CMake] cmake-gui's separation between configuration generation

2012-08-23 Thread John Drescher
 Is the separation between configuration  generation really necessary
 for cmake-gui? I ask because several of my co-workers are confused
 between the differences in the two, even though I explain it.

 Honestly there isn't really a reason that I can think of to do a
 configure without a generate, unless you're testing the integrity of
 your CMake script changes maybe, but even then, if its broken
 generation won't take place.

 The command line program does not separate the two, so I simply think
 cmake-gui should eliminate the configure button, and simply have a
 generate button. Does this seem fair? Is there a reason why they are
 separated?

I can think of one use case that I use that the separation is a good
thing. What about when you have options and variables that are
conditional depending on other CMake variables so that setting the
variables / options may take more than 1 configure.

You do not need quotes around the source file names if there are no

Are all the Qt dlls in the same folder as qmake.exe? This should be

Re: [CMake] Why are my static libs not being read?

2012-07-31 Thread John Drescher
 The qt libraries are included in the target link flag (this project uses qt
 of course), however the two lib files that exist in the lib folder in the
 same directory are either not recognized. They draw up linker issues in the
 compiler, even though I can tell through the cmake gui that it does find
 those paths.

 Any input at all would be great. Below I have included the CMakeLists.txt, a
 screenshot of the cmake gui as well as a sample of the linking errors being
 drawn.

 PROJECT(CppSampleQt01)
 FIND_PACKAGE(Qt4 REQUIRED)

 //These are the lines I am concerned do not function appropriately. However
 you can  http://i.imgur.com/EDrHR.png see here  that they are recognized by
 CMake
 FIND_LIBRARY(SIMPLONLIB lv.simplon lib)
 FIND_LIBRARY(SIMPLONIMGPROC lv.simplon.imgproc lib)

 SET(CppSampleQt01_SOURCES include/lv.simplon.class.cpp camera.cpp main.cpp
 mainwindow.cpp osdep.cpp paint.cpp)
 SET(CppSampleQt01_HEADERS include/lv.simplon.class.h camera.h mainwindow.h
 osdep.h paint.h)
 SET(CppSampleQt01_RESOURCES icons.qrc)

 INCLUDE(${QT_USE_FILE})
 ADD_DEFINITIONS(${QT_DEFINITIONS})

 ADD_EXECUTABLE(CppSampleQt01 ${CppSampleQt01_SOURCES}
 ${CppSampleQt01_HEADERS_MOC}
 ${CppSampleQt01_RESOURCES_RCC})

 TARGET_LINK_LIBRARIES(CppSampleQt01 ${QT_LIBRARIES})

You need to add your 2 libraries in TARGET_LINK_LIBRARIES. CMake will
not do that automatically.

I think it should be:

TARGET_LINK_LIBRARIES(CppSampleQt01 ${QT_LIBRARIES} ${SIMPLONLIB}

since both of these should be variables.

One way is to put this file along with the sources in a subdirectory
of your project and use the add_subdirectory cmake command to add that
to your project. Then add qextserialport to your
TARGET_LINK_LIBRARIES. This time just use qextserialport since it is
not a variable but a target. You will also have to add a entry to your
include_directories for the location of the .h file in this
subdirectory.

 well this is created and doesn't exist from the beginning:

 when I try to go in and delete this folder by hand I can't. The libhello is
 locking up the hole thing. It just says I can't remove it and I have tried
 everything.
 I can create things in the ZIP file but below that nothing. It is just like
 it doenst exist but I can see it.

 I have no clue what so ever whats wrong.


Sounds like this is either a problem with an antivirus, OS locking or
your hard drive is going bad. For the latter install CrystalDiskInfo
and see if it says your drive is any other status than good.

Re: [CMake] How to deal with pre built 3rd party libs?

2012-05-15 Thread John Drescher
 I have a project that depends on 3rd party dll's (libxml2).

 Is there a 'best practice' to deal with associated files, .h, .lib .dll of
 such within a CMake project?

 My library needs to link to the 3rd party lib, and needs its dll for
 execution (obviously), so I feel the need for copying this DLL to my libs
 'install/bin' folder, so that any of my executables can run, without getting
 a '...dll not found'.



I wrote cmake macros to generate a batch file containing cmake -e
commands to copy the dlls to each configuration. This I run as a
target in my projects.

Re: [CMake] Clear cache on upgrade?

2012-04-23 Thread John Drescher
 A good rule of thumb is to try just upgrading CMake and running it on
 existing build trees. It's obviously quicker than a re-configure from
 scratch.

 But then, before complaining about something not working, try it in a fresh
 build tree first, then if it's still wrong, complain. :-)

 It's rare, although it does happen sometimes, that we make a change in CMake
 itself that invalidates something that's in an existing cache.


Fully agreed.. It has been quite rare that a CMake upgrade has caused
a problem or a need to re configure.

The 32 bit version works fine for win64. You can get the source and
build a 64 bit cmake however that does not really give you anything
more than the 32 bit version does. Its not like you need 4GB of ram to
create your projects.

Re: [CMake] Is there a cookbook?

2012-02-24 Thread John Drescher
 but my point
 here is that we really need a CMake CookBook or snippet repository. I always
 hit the FAQ first, but that /explains/ when what a coder tends to need in
 that frame of mind is a living example.

Maybe some user committed examples in the wiki just like what has been
done for the vtk and itk examples..

Re: [CMake] Can't generate Release build in Visual Studio 9

2012-02-24 Thread John Drescher
 The SLN solution contains all possible build-types. The user just have to
 select which one they want (i.e. in Visual Studio, not cmake)


Continuing on this subject. The default configuration in Visual Studio
is Debug so that is why debug is selected.

There are many ways around this:

1. You could reduce the configurations that CMake creates down just to
the one you want.

2. Do batch building. I do this option. Look at the cmake --build command

3. Use nmake makefiles (I believe)

4. Generate a new .user file to specify the default build for your
project in visual studio when you configure the project in cmake.

 2. Do batch building. I do this option. Look at the cmake --build command


Here is an example of this for one of my current projects (not exactly
what I do but close enough):

rem configure
pushd .
cd X:\64Bit\VC.100\Qt\StudyManager
cmake X:/CMakeBased/Qt/StudyManager
popd

rem build the nsis package.
cmake --build X:/64Bit/VC.100/Qt/StudyManager --config Release --target PACKAGE

X:/64Bit/VC.100/Qt/StudyManager is the build folder containing the
.sln CMakeCache.txt ...

Re: [CMake] Accessing Variables from within a *.cmake file

 Hi,


 I am trying to control the flow of my program based on the value of a cmake
 variable called CMAKE_SIZEOF_VOID_P.



 To start off, I wanted to just see what value this variable took under
 multiple different configurations, by issuing the following command in my
 cmakelists.txt file:



 message(${CMAKE_SIZEOF_VOID_P})



 This works perfectly. However, whenever I try to run the above command on my
 *.cmake file, I get no value returned to me (it just throws an error).


Is there a PROJECT()

before you include your .cmake

Re: [CMake] simplest possible NSIS package

2012-02-23 Thread John Drescher
 Just to make you laugh I found the source of the problem.
 Apparently if you try to run an installer from a directory which is on a
 shared directory (with the virtualbox
 sharing) it just won't run :D

 Copying it somewhere else works perfectly, quite amazing issue.


Thanks for reporting back. That was very puzzling to me since my NSIS
builds have worked for a long time.

Re: [CMake] [Insight-users] CMake configure insightapplications with FLTK

 Hi All,



 I was trying to configure InsightApplications in CMake with USE_FLTK turned
 on, but I continuously got the error message:



 CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:128 (INCLUDE):

 include called with wrong number of arguments. Include only takes one

 file.


That means on line 128 you have an

include( ${SomeCmakeVariable} )

and the cmake variable is blank.

Re: [CMake] Shared intermediary files

 Hello,

   I’m in the process of converting over a large, monolithic tree with many
 libraries from a custom build solution over to cmake.  So far, we’ve loved
 it.  I am wondering about others’ solutions to a problem we have
 encountered.



 We have more than a few cases of generated source files - for example, Qt
 moc files.   These all get dumped into CMAKE_CURRENT_BINARY_DIR.  Now, the
 libraries we have build both static  shared, and have the same source
 files.  In Visual Studio, this generates two projects in the solution.  It
 seems that these do not share dependencies.  Occasionally, this means that
 both libraries try to write to the generated source file at the same time,
 which generates a (false) build failure.



 What do others do?  Am I misunderstanding something?


I have my batch build script that calls cmake --build for each
configuration build 2 times. This works for almost all cases. However
when building VTK in parallel the generation of 1 unicode header
usually fails.

Re: [CMake] Generating CMake scripts from Visual Studio solutions projects?

2012-02-18 Thread John Drescher
 2+ years? That could easily end up like a Yugo vs. Porsche surprise ;)


 The original vcproj2cmake script was composed of 300 lines,
 and now the project is to the tune of around 4000 lines.


I have a lot of 5 to 15 year old MFC code(applications, dlls, static
libraries) that I would like to use this on. I could give it a test
sometime next week.

Re: [CMake] Cmake hangs on testing -- Check for working C compiler using: Visual Studio 10

2012-02-18 Thread John Drescher
 Now I don't know what is happening. This is no longer working. Back to
 hanging up.


I have never had this hang and I use visual studio 2010 SP1 daily for
over a year with cmake. Now I am on cmake-2.8.7 however I have used
probably every other 2.8 release as well.
