Re: Please help me to install PCL on my windows

Hi Reena,
some time ago I was rather happy with using vcpkg with Microsoft Visual Studio.
In point of facts I had some problems that I managed to solve myself with a bunch of small tricks, but I know some of the issues were solved, and moreover the problems depended on the machine on which I was installing, so you just have to try.

Info are here
http://unanancyowen.com/en/pcl-vcpkg/
I used powershell as the command line environment for installation.
Here are the commands I used after installing VS and vcpkg, but some  time has passed so I might be wrong somewhere:
C:\src\vcpkg> .\bootstrap-vcpkg.bat
C:\src\vcpkg> .\vcpkg integrate install   (you need to be administrator)
C:\src\vcpkg> .\vcpkg install pcl[openni2,qt,pcap]:x64-windows --featurepackages

Ah, before the preceding commands I had to manually install (because there were some related error messages):
MSMpiSetup-8.1.exe
Moreover in the Italian version of VStudio there were problems so I had to revert to the English one.

What else... I had problems also with Qt, and I found (on a Web site) a solution which was to activate VS command line instruments with


C:\src\vcpkg>"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual
Studio\2017\Professional\VC\Auxiliary\Build\vcvarsall" x64

Still qhull did not install, so I launched its installation by itself and then I repeated the general installation command:

vcpkg install qhull:x64-windows --featurepackages
vcpkg install pcl[openni2,qt,pcap]:x64-windows --featurepackages

Finally there was the export command
vcpkg export pcl:x64-windows --nuget --zip
which also gave problems to me (never worked for me, but iirc the problem was later solved), so I simply put some links in VS to refer to the
C:\src\vcpkg\....
directories.

Of course something may have changed since! So please consider what I've written with care. I've simply pasted here some of my old notes.

------------------

Another option is to follow
http://unanancyowen.com/en/pcl181/
which I did the first times I installed PCL. If compared to the preceding approach, the latter has no Qt, iirc (please somebody correct me if I am wrong! too much time elapsed since...). On the other hand, it is perhaps simpler. So, choose the one which fits better to your needs.

Best regards
Giorgio
