Hi Marc,

Please ensure your environment variables INCLUDE and LIB are correctly set :

Subject: [ROOT] Installing root from source for MSVC


I am trying to compile a debug version of ROOT that can be linked with MSVC++ programmes.
(On windows, obviously)

I have installed cygwin, downloaded the code with CVS and ran configure with win32. So far, everything fine. Indeed cl.exe is called to do the compilation and I have set the PATH variable so that CYGWIN can find cl, and the DLLs that it requires.

Now some microsoft header file (sehmap.h) can not be found. Presumably, I have to tell the configure script where they are. If I look at the compilation options I see a -Iinclude flag, which is empty otherwise, so this is the problem, most likely. How do I do this ?

The only prefix options that I could find that relate to include specify where the ROOT include headers are supposed to go.
