Hi, I wasn't expecting a reply so quickly. I have MSVC++ 2010
Express Edition installed. However, I found that calling cl.exe
from the command line doesn't work, as I get an error about mspdb100.dll
being not found. After some investigation I added the directory
for the VS IDE, which contains mspdb100.dll to my path.
This also didn't work. However, if I run vcvars32.bat, to set up
all the environment variables for the VS IDE in the command shell
before starting octave, it does appear to work. I get:
For others, on my system the vcvars32.bat file is located at
c:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\VC\bin
If I close the command window, and launch octave again from a
shortcut, I get the error again, so the variables don't seem to
persist, what a pain. Any idea how to adjust my setup to set up
the variables automatically?
