in preparation of the node meeting i wanted to set up the vvvv-sdk on my notebook with windows 8 installed. unfortunately i stumbled into lots of errors when trying to compile the addon-pack (missing assemblies, …).
did anyone successfully install the sdk under windows 8?
here is what i did a little more precisely:
i followed the exact instructions how to install the addonpack
no .net 4 install nescessary under win 8
but i installed the windows 8 sdk
and i’m using sharp develop as ide
–> no success.
just to make sure i did not forget anything i followed the procedure on a win 7 computer without any problems.
sorry, no luck after the update. i also checked out a clean version from vvvv/vvvv-sdk just to make sure.
i noticed the following:
windows 8 sdk also installs .net 4.5 (see also here under what’s new). when opening the .sln in sharp develop among all the other stuff it complains about this
The reference assemblies for framework “.NETFramework,Version=v4.0” were not found. To resolve this, install the SDK or Targeting Pack for this framework version or retarget your application to a version of the framework for which you have the SDK or Targeting Pack installed. Note that assemblies will be resolved from the Global Assembly Cache (GAC) and will be used in place of reference assemblies. Therefore your assembly may not be correctly targeted for the framework you intend.
i attached the whole output - maybe this helps finding the bugger. if i can do anything else please let me know.
its not clear to me what that means. are you aware of the fact the .net 4.5 and .net 4.0 are different things? 4.5 does not include the binaries of 4.0, so you need it as a separate installer. or do you mean, that win8 does not allow you to install 4.0?
make sure you set the active build platform in sharp develop to x86 (Build -> Set platform -> x86). also make sure that the folder vvvv45/addonpack/src/thirdparty exists. this one is a symbolic link and should have been setup by the init script.
