Visual Studio 2008 and OpenCascade

Vallée's picture

Hello everybody,
I'm a new OpenCascade user and I'd like to use its classes and methods inside an existent VS 2008 solution.
I've read a lot of topics on this forum but I still don't know if I need to intall JDK, Tic, Tk, Fltk, Qt, and follow the whole difficult procedure :(, or if I just need to add some dependencies in the solution...and in that case what dependencies and how ?
Would someone help me please ?
Thanks in advance !

The dependencies listed in various posts on this forum mainly deal with a _rebuild_ of OCCT from scratch. In order to use the ibraries in your own project, you'll need add
- the OCC-include directory
- the Library directory $(CASROOT)\win32\lib
- Additonal References to the libraries from wich you want to use functions. In the reference documentation each documented class has a Package and an include file specified. the name of the package + .lib is is the lib file you'll need to add to your dependencies.

Eventually I've rebuilt OpenCascade with MS VS 2008, following the whole procedure...
I'm now going to modify the rebuilt samples to obtain what I want.
