This is not related to FreeOrion. Im trying to use GG to build an interface for my OpenGL application. I have downloaded and unzipped Freetpype, DevIL, Boost but I am unable to build the GiGi project on Microsoft Visual Studio .NET2003. Perhaps I have not built the Boost libraries correctly. Im getting a bunch of linkers errors, for example:
GiGi fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file libboost_signals-vc71-mt-1_33_1.lib'
When I built the boost libraries, it gave them these long names like "libboost_signals-vc71-mt-1_33_1.lib" but in the GiGi project, the library required was simply libboost_signals.lib ... Im not sure whether these are the same or two different libraries.
The MSVC project stuff for GG is not supported, and is probably not up-to-date. Use SCons instead to build GG. The directions for how to do so are in the GG docs in the distro, and on the GG online docs.
