Re: question about building on Windows

Dmitri Fedorov <dfedorov.solace@...>


Now I'm puzzled by the other dependency: libevent.

The OpenMAMA Wiki page you referred to suggests to build 1.4.x as libevent_code.lib, but openmama\mama\c_cpp\src\c\bridge\avis\avis.vcxproj refers to libevent.lib, how is it going to work?

What version of libevent do I need to build: 1.4.15 or 2.0.22?

It looks to me that the recommended version 1.4.X fails be build, OpenMAMA refers to the library that is not what's being build.

I was able to build 2.0.22 with "nmake /F Makefile.nmake libevent_core.lib", but I cannot build 1.4.15:

C:\Projects\ext\libevent-release-1.4.15-stable>nmake /F Makefile.nmake libevent_core.lib

Hi Dmitri,


Looks like a C&P error from when this document was pulled across – see original instructions here:


Last time I built on windows though I don’t think I needed this step anymore, so maybe that was only for Visual Studio 2008 which is what I was using when I originally created those instructions.


Try going ahead without it and let me know how you get on so I can update documentation Instead try building with the libevent solution file in the WIN32-Prj subdirectory.

In Wiki page on building under Windows for libevent:



There is the following sentence I have a question about, please:

I'm puzzled by this instruction:

> add #include along with the other includes


Could someone explain it to me, please?

Add where? Add what, an empty #include?

What "other" includes? 


Thank you in advance.
