    Jan 08 2020 | 11:24 pm
    Hi all, i'm trying to explore min-devkit to write some external in C++. I have VS2019 and CMake installed but from the Min Object Development Kit VS2019 does not start at all. Any hint or help? thanks

      The Min-DevKit does build using VS2019, as seen @ https://ci.appveyor.com/project/c74/min-devkit/branch/master
      So a little more info might help... Before we get to your package, are you able to build the Min-DevKit package itself? Can you share your command line or steps you are using?

      Hi, i simply follow the tutorial here http://cycling74-ci.s3.amazonaws.com/min-devkit/min-intro-mac.mp4 but no VS2019 open up. A quick console window appears (it seems empty) for less than half a second then nothing happens.

      Hi Alfonso,
      I had a similar experience. Basically, package and object creation/setup works. However, getting it to open up VS studio etc is broken.
      I had to do everything by hand at the command prompt. Even then, min.dcblocker didn't show up in the solution file for the min-dev kit demo solution.
      Give the command line options a shot.

      Thanx @DA XU I'll give it a shot. But the developers should make a note in the help patches that open VS is not working. best!

      I've just updated the documentation (e.g. the ReadMe for Min-DevKit) to include the proper incantation for generating Visual Studio 2019 projects and tested it. It's all on master @ https://github.com/Cycling74/min-devkit
      Cheers! Tim

      Thanks Tim! It will works by pressing the button in the max help patch to, or is ment to be used by command line invoking cmake etc. etc.?

      Excellent question. This is for the command line use of CMake. I will open a ticket to update this in the Min launcher interface.

      Thanks Tim! This was exactly my original question tho...Probably it was not so clear.
