I am looking to use the OpenCascade libraries along with Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 (not express) with Windows XP OS. (First Question - Is C++ my only options or our these libraries available in C# as well?)
I've looked over this website, the forums, and some of the documentation and this looks very promising for our project. The only problem is I am having a very difficult time getting things set up so I can test things out and move forward.
My first goal would be able to get the Tutorial example project to compile and run. From there I would have a nice base to play around and test somethings and be able to add and modify code from other examples.
So what I am asking for is if someone would be willing to take some time to talk me though this process step-by-step with a good amount of detail from the very beginning. Let's assume all I have is Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 installed and the OpenCascade libraries downloaded and ready to install. I've tried following various threads from these forums but always end up with a project that won't compile or link properly or some instruction that doesn't quite make enough sense for me to carry on with.
I've tried following http://www.opencascade.org/org/forum/thread_17331/ and a few other threads that I can not find again.
I think my main issue is setting up the system variables, and setting up visual stdio with all the proper dependencies, etc. What all do I need (Qt, Tix, Tlc, etc)?
I know I am asking a lot but if anyone is willing to help with the order of downloads and installs, and how to set up Visual Studio 2008 it would be greatly appreciated. I'll be checking this tread often (hopefully to look at replies) so if there are follow up questions I will try to provide timely answers. Also, if someone has successfully done this (be able to compile and run the tutorial or similar project using Visual Studio 2008), and used links or threads that were helpful to them, those could be provided. I've searched but it is possible I have missed some link that already explains this.
I thank you all in advance.
