Hi, I am trying to compile the TBB libraries posted as open source with little success. I am aware now that I need a number of unix tools (gmake, etc) to do this. Could someone please post a VS project/solution file to do this automatically?
I haven't worked with Visual Studio 2008, but I wrote a blog about a method of building TBB using Visual Studio 2005 that worked for me. My post was titled "One Way to Build Threading Building Blocks on Windows" and the URL is:
The recent development release of TBB added the possibility to build the library with Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2. No special workarounds are required, usual TBB build procedure should work just fine. It means, you still need GNU make that works on Windows. The Make for Windowsfrom the GnuWin32 projectis my personal favourite; Cygwin (as described by Kevin) or other similar packagesshould also work well. Besides GNU make, no other UNIX utilities are required.
The build procedure is approximately the following:
There also are more build instructions in build/index.html. Though it is said that a UNIX shell is required, GNU make is actually enough; all UNIX commands used to run in a shell were reworked to Windows commands and/or scripts.
I hope this helps.
