Build Instructions for Windows
Microsoft Visual C++ 2005
To build the Hippo OpenSim Viewer for Windows, it is strongly suggested to use Mircosoft's Visual C++ 2005. The freely available Express edition is perfectly fine.
Getting the Source
The source code is available from the OpenSimulator Forge Subversion Repositiory.
You can check out the latest release from the OpenSim Forge:
svn co http://forge.opensimulator.org/svn/opensim-viewer/trunk source
Note that the trunk might have incomplete features or might not even compile.
Note: Quicktime is required for playing movies in-world. The download is free, but you have to register at the Apple web site.
Visual Studio Runtime DLLs
Note: These DLLs are only required for packaging your build into an installer.
First you need to prepare the build tree:
cd source scripts/addons_get_fmod.sh cd scripts ./build.bat cd ..
Open the generated VS2005 solution linden/indra/build-VC80/SecondLife.sln and select your build target:
Then build the solution...
