I have tried to find out, how to set up a development environment under windows 7 (64bit) for coding an external for Max/MSP.
Under MS Visual Studio C++ 2010 Express I'm not able to compile the code because of problems with the linked header files from the max-includes.
1>c:transfermaxsdk-5.1.7maxsdk-5.1.7c74supportmax-includesext_prefix.h(73): warning C4068: unknown pragma
1>c:transfermaxsdk-5.1.7maxsdk-5.1.7c74supportmax-includesext_prefix.h(106): fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'MacTypes.h': No such file or directory
So I tried to set up the cygwin development environment. Here I have the problem, that I cannot build with the -mno-cygwin flag.
This is a known problem. The information I have found in the MaxSDK-5.1.7examplescollectCompilingWithGCC.txt and regarding this issue is not helping me either, because I do not know how to install the "Automated Mingw installer (MinGW 5.1.6)" or the "MSYS-1.0.11.exe"
My attempt to get Eclipse up and running failed to.
I have problems to tell Eclipse how to link the header-files.
fatal error: ext.h: no such file or directory
Event though the corresponding "ext.h" file can be found navigating the "includes" in my project. (can be seen in the attached Screenshot)
Does anybody has a development environment under Windows 7 (Windows 8) 64bit running?
What are the steps to bring it up and running?
Thanks in advance! All help and hints are welcome
