Compiling Cafu on Windows 10: "Unknown compiler platform win32"

Postby jellypox » 2016-05-19, 20:43

Hey,

I just went to test this engine, but when attempting to compile, I got the following message:

Code: Select all

C:\cafu-cafu-n>scons
scons: Reading SConscript files ...

Unknown compiler on platform win32.

C:\cafu-cafu-n>


A search for this error message on the forum didn't turn up anything, so I decided to post here. I edited CompilerSetup.py as instructed for 64bit Windows, but it gives me the same error message either way.

I'm running Windows 10 64bit with Python 2.7, the latest version of SCons and Windows Visual Studio Community 2015.

Hi jellypox,
welcome to the Cafu forums! :welcome:

The problem is related to Visual Studio 2015, for which we don't have support yet. I'm currently working on it though, please give me another day or two. I'll post here again as soon as I've completed the required changes! :up:
Best regards,
Carsten

Well, it seems to have gotten past its issue with VS2015, but now it's telling me 'nmake' is not recognized.

Code: Select all

c:\cafu-cafu-z>scons
scons: Reading SConscript files ...

os.chdir('ExtLibs/wxWidgets/build/msw')
nmake /nologo /f makefile.vc BUILD=debug SHARED=0 COMPILER_PREFIX=vc14
'nmake' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
os.chdir('C:\\cafu-cafu-z')
scons: *** Error 1

c:\cafu-cafu-z>


It's persisted in doing this even after I manually added the path to nmake.exe to my path variable and rebooted the system. I really have no idea what could explain this, and all the relevant answers that came up on Google just said to add it to your path variable. Maybe you can help me with this, although it seems that Cafu isn't what's causing the problem here.

Hi jellypox,

I've experienced this issue as well, and in my case the problem was that I didn't have the Visual C++ tools installed along with whatever the installer covered by default. The solution was to open Windows' "Programs and Features" dialog, open the "Visual Studio 2015 Community" installer again, and there add the "Common Tools for Visual C++ 2015". After that (and a reboot) it worked for me. (This used to be much easier and more straightforward in earlier versions of Visual C++...)

Does this help?
Best regards,
Carsten

Your solution worked, I managed to start up the compiling process, but then I got an error saying this version of VC++ is unsupported. Here are the last few lines; not sure if that first line is relevant, but I included it anyway.

Code: Select all

Note: The FBX SDK is not present.

Oh, sorry! The 32-bit build worked, and it was the only one that I checked. For the 64-bit build, I got the same error message as you and just committed a fix. (Don't worry about the first message about wx/compiler.h. You will likely see it again, but it is not related and just a harmless warning; I'll address it later.)

Please pull again and let me know if it works! :up:
