Some notes for building OpenEXR 1.4.0a on Vista with VS2008:
createDLLwon't work as it tries to create files in
C:\. You can easily work around this by replacing
C:\\with a path where you have write rights.
- FLTK include files have to be directly in the
fltkfolder needs to be placed side-by-side to the OpenEXR folder.
- Using multi-threaded building won't wont, so make sure you either batch-build or set your "maximum number of parallel project builds" to 1.
Observing this and the readme notes, I was able to successfully compile all but the exrdisplay with Cg support, which is no wonder as I don't have Cg installed.
