Building a Windows Installer

Possibly incomplete notes, please report if things are missing.

Building the Installer

  • Build libavg using Visual Studio.
  • Under win/testplugin:
1python bdist_wininst
  • Installer is placed in dist/

To test, remove everything under Python27\Lib\site-packages, run the installer, and run the tests.

Using the Installer

  • Install python 2.7, 32 bit (or whatever python version you used to build the installer)
  • run the libavg installer
  • Optional: Install CMU camera drivers (only if you want to use native firewire camera support).
  • (If needed) install Visual C++ 2010 redistributable package
