I downloaded GLE from http://sourceforge.net/projects/gle/ . I extracted using winRar. there was no lib files. There was a project file and some C files. I loaded the project(all the C files are included in the project) and compiled it. It created “include” & “lib” directories and then it asked for executable file name. I don’t know what to do. so i pressed ‘Cancel’ button. I checked the ‘lib’ directory. There is only one file called gled.lib. when i tried to use a gle function the programme gets compiled. When i tried to run it it says link error. I tried adding gled.lib in link directories. But it says it can’t open. I tried installation 3 or 4 times. No change. I think it’s looking for some lib files. I tried to search using google. no luck.
How to tackle this problem?
thanks & Regards
What compiler do you use? It sounds like maybe VC++?
You got the prompt asking for an executable because the project compiles a static library.
Did you give the full path to the .lib?
What were the exact linker errors?
yes, I’m using VC++ 6.0
fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file “gled.lib”
(I tried with gled.lib because that’s the only lib file it generated)
thanks & Regards in advance
compiling the given C files only builds gled.lib.
Here is the details from readme.txt
This directory contains projects files for building
GLE with the Microsoft Visual Studio C++ Workspace.
Built libraries will be located in the lib-folder. The Debug-version is named gled.lib and the release-version gle.lib. Both are compiled using the run-time libraries “Debug Multithreaded DLL” and “Multithreaded DLL”.
When the library is built an include/GL directory will be created and the gle.h file from the src directory will be copied into it. To use the library in other projects add the directory …\gle\ms-visual-c\include to the include-directory list in Visual Studio in the Tools/Options/Directories settings
Guys, Anybody know how to install & use GLE
Yes. 1) Download glut for windows source code. It comes with vc++ workspaces and project files. 2) compile gle lib if lib is not there already.
3)Compile and run GLE demos.
