About PCL installation for Windows 8 and Visual Studio 2012 (64bit)

John Hsieh
Dear all,
Recently, I upgraded my system to windows 8 64bit and my VC to Visual Studio 2012.
I had tried to compile PCL by myself, but it is so painful to compile and install a bunch of PCL dependences such as Boost, Eigen, FLANN, CUDA and etc. Can any one kindly show me a way to install PCL with its dependences quickly and perfectly in my specific system? Thank you for your help.
Have a nice day

Shouldn't Cmake2.8.10 supports vs2012 already?

Actually, I didn't check whether the CMake 2.8.10 is available to VC2012 or not.
A few hours ago, I just visited CMake offical website. It seems not support VC2012.
Thank you for your kind reminding.
Now my situation becomes worse.
However, I still need a help to make PCL available in VC2012 (64bit).

i builded PCL 1.7 and now i use PCL with visual 2012 and windows 8 (32 bit). it works very good.
if you want to build windows 8 64 bit, you must rebuild all 3rdParty (include VTK).

Thank you for your reply.
As you said, it is so painful to rebuild all of dependencies.

Hey all,
To anyone who is thinking about getting pcl with win8 and vs2012 to work... I just got all pcl dependencies and pcl 1.7.1 successfully to work with windows 8.1, vs2012 on a 64 bit machine. For the dependencies I compiled the verions provided as precompiled binaries on the pcl download page.
I opted for a minimalistic build without vtk, as I have my own qt based viewers..

While it is rather painful to rebuild all dependencies, I hit very few rocks, none of which could not be resolved with simple google searches. The most tricky one was the linker error described here:
http://www.pcl-users.org/Building-PCL-1-6-0-with-MSVC-2012-td4022101.html
but the discribed work around worked like a charm (only letting me wonder how much performence I traded in to get pcl working). Also when compiling boost, run b2.exe with the correct arguments to create 64bit and not 32bit libs.

All in all downloading, compiling and googling errors took me about 4-6 hours, so it was not that bad.
