- CMake workaround for VS2017. Posted by Yoni Davidson on 14 May 2018 07:41 AM. IncrediBuild doesn't yet support the new CMake feature in Visual Studio 2017, so below is a general command line workaround that will let you take advantage of the new feature.
- Execute the following commands from VS2017 x64 Native Tools Command Prompt: cd c:localsrczlibzlib-1.2.8 mkdir build cd build cmake.G'Visual Studio 15' -DCMAKEINSTALLPREFIX='c:localzlib-vs17' msbuild /P:Configuration=Release INSTALL.vcxproj Building libzip. Execute the following commands from VS2017 x64 Native Tools Command Prompt.

These are step for users who use Windows with Visual Studio.
Enter bgfx directory:
Generate Visual Studio 2017 project files:
Open bgfx solution in Visual Studio 2017:
Cmake Vs2017 Generator
For more detailed prerequisites and build steps on other platforms see below.
Set following enironment variables:
To deploy on Android you can use bgfx android activity:
Windows users download GnuWin32 utilities:
bgfx uses GENie - Project generator toolto generate project files for various platform. Binaries for Linux, OSX, and Windows are included inbx repository.
make, .build/projects/* directory will be generated.All intermediate files generated by compiler will be inside .builddirectory structure. Deleting .build directory at any time is safe.
<platform>-<debug/release>[32/64]. For example:
Visual Studio 2017 command line:
Visual Studio 2017 IDE:
Xcode command line:
Due to inabilityto set working directory for an Xcode project from GENieconfiguration file, it has to be set manually for each example project:
Open “Edit scheme…” dialog for a given project.
Select “Run” settings.
Check “Use custom working directory” and enter following path:
WinRT / UWP¶
Build the resulting solution and deploy to device.
Shaders will need to be compiled with the appropriate target profile for your platform.
For ease of integration to other build system bgfx library can be builtwith single .cpp file. It’s only necessary to buildsrc/amalgamated.cpp(for OSX/iOS usesrc/amalgamated.mminstead) inside different build system.
To build bgfx project files for tools, use
Alternative build systems¶
fips is a highlevel build system wrapper written in Python for C/C++ projects.https://github.com/floooh/fips#fips
Minimal example without bgfx’ example harness¶
This project demonstrates minimal amount of code needed to integrate bgfx with GLFW, but withoutany of existing bgfx example harness. It also demonstrates how to build bgfx with alternative buildsystem.
Generates Visual Studio 16 (VS 2019) project files.
VS 2019 supports multiple installations on the same machine.The
CMAKE_GENERATOR_INSTANCE variable may be set as acache entry containing the absolute path to a Visual Studio instance.If the value is not specified explicitly by the user or a toolchain file,CMake queries the Visual Studio Installer to locate VS instances, choosesone, and sets the variable as a cache entry to hold the value persistently.
When CMake first chooses an instance, if the
VS160COMNTOOLS environmentvariable is set and points to the
Common7/Tools directory withinone of the instances, that instance will be used. Otherwise, if morethan one instance is installed we do not define which one is chosenby default.
The default target platform name (architecture) is that of the hostand is provided in the
CMAKE_GENERATOR_PLATFORM variable may be set, perhapsvia the
-A option, to specify a target platformname (architecture). For example:
v142 toolset that comes with Visual Studio 16 2019 is selected bydefault. The
CMAKE_GENERATOR_TOOLSET option may be set, perhapsvia the
-T option, to specify another toolset.
Cmake Vs2017 Error
New in version 3.8: For each toolset that comes with this version of Visual Studio, there arevariants that are themselves compiled for 32-bit (
x86) and64-bit (
x64) hosts (independent of the architecture they target).By default this generator uses the 64-bit variant on x64 hosts andthe 32-bit variant otherwise.One may explicitly request use of either the 32-bit or 64-bit host toolsby adding either
host=x64 to the toolset specification.See the
CMAKE_GENERATOR_TOOLSET variable for details.
New in version 3.14: Added suport for
