C++ Question

Generate a library (.lib) file

  1. I want to build Libharu and generate a static library (.lib) file. I am using VS2010.

  2. I want to build Libharu with
    support. I have already installed them and
    are present in Program Files (x86)/GnuWin32/lib

  3. I followed the installation method for Windows platforms (except cygwin/MinGW) as mentioned on this official link

    • I used
      nmake -f script/Makefile.msvc
      which generated

    • then to check the success, I ran
      nmake -f script/Makefile.msvc demo
      , which successfully created the demo Pdfs

Question: How do I generate
file with

1. Link for ZLIB installation

  1. Link for Libpng installation

UPDATE: By doing the above mention steps, i get the following output on console

You need to set the environment variables ZLIB_PREFIX and PNG_PREFIX to the according folders they are installed in before you run the makefile

The scripts expects the folder PNG_PREFIX\include and PNG_PREFIX\lib to be existent (so set the variables to the folder both these folders are in).

The same goes for ZLIB_PREFIX.
