- Install HAPI, using either an installer or with the source code (For VS2010, see below). If you use the installer and keep it in the default directory, it should install to C:/HAPI. If you use the source, it will be in the directory that you specify. From this point forward, we will refer to this directory as MyHAPIInstallation.
- Turn on the option SOFA-PLUGIN_SOFAHAPI in CMake, and configure.
- Likely, CMake will report that HAPI was not found. You can manually set:
HAPI_INCLUDE_DIR = MyHAPIInstallation/HAPI/include
HAPI_LIBRARY = MyHAPIInstallation/lib/HAPI_vc9.lib If you are not compiling in Visual Studio 2008, change the _vc9.lib suffix to whatever version is appropriate. HAPI_DEBUG_LIBRARY is optional. Configure again.
- Next, you will probably get an error that H3DUTIL was not found. You can manually set:
H3DUTIL_INCLUDE_DIR = MyHAPIInstallation/H3DUtil/include
H3DUTIL_LIBRARY = MyHAPIInstallation/lib/H3DUtil_vc9.lib Again, changing the library suffix if needed. H3DUTIL_DEBUG_LIBRARY is optional. Configure again.
- Finally, you will probably get an error that PTHREAD was not found. You can manually set:
PTHREAD_INCLUDE_DIR = MyHAPIInstallation/External/include/pthread
PTHREAD_LIBRARY = MyHAPIInstallation/External/lib/pthreadVC2.lib Note that pthreadVC2.lib is not in the same directory as the previous two libraries. Configure again.
- You should now be able to Generate and compile without problems.
HAPI for VS2010
The HAPI installer doesn’t include libraries for VS2010, so you will have to build them yourself.
- Start by using the installer, as it will get you the source code and Pthread, a required library.
- Using CMake, set the Source Code to MyHAPIInstallation/HAPI/build.
- Set the Build to where you want to source to be built.
- Press Configure, and choose Visual Studio 10 as the desired compiler.
- Press Configure until all the red highlighted things are gone.
- Press Generate.
- Open the resulting Solution file in Visual Studio 2010, and compile.
- Once everything finishes compiling, you can find H3DUtil_vc10.lib in MyHAPIInstallation/H3DUtil/build/Release and HAPI_vc10.lib in MyHAPIInstallation/HAPI/build/Release. You can either leave them where they are and point CMake to them when configuring, or copy them toMyHAPIInstallation/lib with the libraries for the other versions of Visual Studio.
- Repeat the compilation is debug mode if desired.
