Please bear with me, as I'm just learning visual basic. I'm at the initial stages of checking that the SDK is installed correctly, but when I build dng_validate, I am stuck with two unresolved external symbols: gVerbose, and gDumpLineLimit
My steps so far are as follows:
1) I'm using Visual Basic 2017, so I also installed Visual Basic 2013 (update 5), in order to work correctly with the v120 platform toolset
2) Under dng_validate properties, the Platform toolset is indeed set to Visual Basic 2013 v.120
3) my folder structure after unpacking the dng_sdk 1.4 contains the three folders, & one file:
4) within the libjpeg folder, I have renamed jconfig.vc to jconfig.h
Are there any other dependencies I need to install? or steps to take to have dng_validate correctly compile?
gVerbose and gDumpLineLimit are declared in dng_globals.cpp, which is part of the SDK, if the qDNGValidate macro symbol is defined.
Either you aren't compiling/linking to dng_global.cpp, or qDNGValidate isn't defined for the dng_global.cpp compilation
Thanks so much for your reply.
dng_globals.cpp is part of the dng_sdk. Is there something I need to do to have dng_validate recognize this?
Here's a screenshot of the solution explorer (VS2013):
And the errors after building/debugging:
Any clues what could be going wrong?
Well, your solution explorer screenshot can't possibly compile - it's missing a vast number of files in the dng_sdk section, unless the SDK is being included somewhere else. I'd suggest using the project file supplied with the SDK.
Thanks again for your reply...
re: the solution explorer screenshot, I have dng_globals in the search box, to filter out all other files
I am using the DNG SDK, downloaded from Adobe (dng_sdk_1_4.zip)
I have followed in instructions in the readme.txt for installing/renaming files in libjpeg
I am using VS2013 as I see the DNG SDK was created using this version.
I have also searched the forum to resolve this issue & haven't found any pertinent solutions.
Regarding your first reply, I see in the VS solution explorer that dng_globals.cpp is part of the dng_sdk. Is there something I need to do to have dng_validate recognize this?
thanks so much!
ps. if it helps, here is the view I have of the solution explorer without filtering applied:
Check whether qDNGValidate is defined during the compile of dng_global.cpp
Thanks again for the reply... Sorry for the delay--I'm on a learning curve with visual studio... But no qDNGValidate is not defined in dng_globals.cpp
I haven't changed anything from the downloaded version of the DNG SDK. Is there a way to fix this?
qDNGValidate should be defined at project level, within the Visual Studio project - you need to check why it isn't.
