- Visual Studio 2013 for Windows Desktop Jp|En
- Boost pre-built binary
We can select the install directory, say BOOST_DIR. I chose boost_1_55_0-msvc-12.0-64.exe because msvc-12.0 means VS2013, my PC is 64bit, and my ubuntu PC uses 1.54 (the pre-built 1.54 is up to VS 2010). With the executable,
include directory: BOOST_DIR
library directory: BOOST_DIR\lib64-msvc-12.0
Generate Eigen.sln by running cmake and open the generated Eigen.sln as a superuser. Running only INSTALL project, the project installs all header files in “C:/Program Files/Eigen/include/eigen3“.
Note that there’s no deed to do the above operation because Eigen is header only library.
needed for ceres-solver. Download from github and run google-glog.sln.
needed for ceres-solver. Download from github, run cmake, and run gflags.sln. Running ALL_BUILD and then INSTALL projects, the header files and the generated library files are installed in
include directory: C:/Program Files/gflags/Include/gflags/
library directory: C:/Program Files/gflags/Lib
cmake related directory: C:/Program Files/gflags/CMake/
- SuiteSparse for Windows
needed for ceres-solver. Download from github, run cmake, and run SuiteSparseProject.sln. Running ALL_BUILD and then INSTALL project, the header files and the generated library files are installed in
library directory: SUITESPARSE_ROOT_DIR/build/install/lib64/lapack_blas_windows, SUITESPARSE_ROOT_DIR/build/install/lib64
include directory: SUITESPARSE_ROOT_DIR/build/install/include/suitesparse
Note that (1) the library directories should be added to environment variables PATH, (2) SUITESPARSE_ROOT_DIR/build/install should be set as an environment variable SuiteSparse_DIR to find by FindSuiteSparse.cmake, and (3) SUITESPARSE_ROOT_DIR/cmakemodule is better to added as an environmental variable so that we can add the directory to cmake module path.
Run CXSPARSE_DIR/CXSparse/Project/CXSparse.sln and build CXSparse project.
Run cmake and manually set some variables such as
EIGEN_INCLUDE_DIR: directory where Eigen/* is located
GFLAGS_INCLUDE_DIR: C:/Program Files/gflags/Include
GFLAGS_LIBRARY: C:/Program Files/gflags/Lib/gflags.lib
