When will Build for Microsoft Visual Studio 2017?
« on: March 23, 2017, 09:26:16 am »
I have MSVS2017 since 20.03.2017. When I can use SFML there?

The VS2015 libs should be compatible with VS2017. And if not, you just have to recompile SFML.

If you mean that your project file is for 32-bits only, then you have to adjust your CMake generator to create a project file for 64-bits.

See here: https://cmake.org/cmake/help/v3.7/generator/Visual%20Studio%2015%202017.html

You just have to run CMake this way:

Code: [Select]
cmake -G "Visual Studio 15 2017 Win64" path/to/your/source/code
This will create a 64 bit targeting solution for you.

Note that you might have to update CMake to properly support the new Visual Studio (or use the one bundled with it).

I had no trouble building debug and release versions using CMake and VS2017. I'm happy to send them through if anybody needs them.

Cheers

Hello, I saw that you posted a reply that you got sfml to work on visual studio 2017, could i get the instructions on that? Are they the same as the ones in the tutorial tab? I cant seem to get it to work with 2017 with those instructions yet i can on 2015, thanks for the help!

Yep, it's the same instructions, nothing has changed.  You just need to make sure your path is setup correctly.  I just downloaded the CMake GUI installation package and used that to do the build.

I can send through the binaries via email if you can't get the build working.

Cheers

No.
As of now, there is no VS2017 build on the download page. Building SFML by oneself w/ VS 2017 is necessary, if one wants to use VS2017.

// EDIT: That being said, I have found my own unofficial SFML build I am currently using. The version is 2.4.2, but I am not sure if it's an official release, or a couple weeks old "nightly build". Anyway, I hope it's going to be helpful.

so this is incorrect ?

Should be correct. But we're still waiting for someone to confirm.
