Bug Description

I'm trying to compile the latest trunk release for the win32 platform using VC2012, and I'm getting an error several times that involves this "version-generated.h" file not being found. I've done a search in the entire trunk directory and haven't found it, and the file "C:\Games\Stratagus\trunk\build_\Release\genversion.exe" is erroring out as well, and when it goes to run genversion.exe, instead of it looking in the relase/debug directories. it looks for it in the directory above it, like this...

2> genversion.vcxproj -> C:\Games\Stratagus\trunk\build_\Release\genversion.exe <- this is the directory it gets compiled to...

4> 'C:\Games\Stratagus\trunk\build_\genversion' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
4> operable program or batch file.

See how after the "build_" folder there's no "release" or if I was compiling in the debug version, no "debug" folder... Something must be bad in where it's pointing to after it compiles genversion.exe... I'll try compiling the debug version and see what happens.

No luck. I've tried compiling the debug version as well, and even deleted the whole directory and started again with CMAKE and a fresh compile in that but no luck evening finding version-generated.h

OK so I did a really fresh CMAKE build and this is the list of what if found and what didn't get found just so you guys can let me know if anything is wrong with it.

All the other things in this build work, I just wanted to get the things it couldn't find, listed for you guys to look at.

I hope I'm making sense I've rushed the explaintion a bit.

I commited more patches which cleaning our defines and patches which determinate errno_t, strcpy_s, strcasestr, strnlen, getopt and strcat_s. If these functions is not present in system, we will use implementation in in src/stratagus/util.cpp file. So this is not critical. Next patch is for generating stratagus version strings at compile time. Now stratagus version is present only in cmake file and version-generated.h is generated by program genversion which must be compiled before compiling stratagus. I wrote cmake rules which should do that.

So first question is: is program genversion compiled correctly? If yes, look at CMakelists.txt, find "add_custom_target(version ALL" and try to change path to genversion.

Well, i'm experiencing the same bug too. I had to compile the genversion.exe manually and place it into solution's directory. The genversion.exe currently is placed into Debug/Release folders, so the system can't find it

So genversion.exe is correctly compiled? Try to change path in CMakeLists.txt where is called if it will work.

Thanks for fix. Btw in future please separate commits, because now you commited in rev r8585 more then compile fix...

Pali (pali) wrote :

I will need to rewrite this part which generating version, because it breaking also cross compilation.

cybermind, can you test if instead your change this will work (removing full path to genversion)?

add_custom_target(version ALL genversion ...)

Using RUNTIME_OUTPUT_DIRECTORY is not good idea, because this can be changed by global cmake variable. And cmake should know where it has generated binaries.
