In the Compilation using the MSVC step, I am getting this errormake: *** No rule to make target ‘msvc’. Stop. I want to compile igraph for CPP programs
In order to be able to comment, we would need many more details, such as:
- Your igraph version
- Where you obtained igraph
- What did you do exactly? Do not omit any step.
- Your OS, compiler, etc.
I have installed igraph visual studio source code 0.8.3 from the igraph.org website, for using it in Visual Studio Coder. My OS is Windows 10 and Compiler is the Microsoft C++ compiler. I have followed all the installation steps as given on the official website but got the above error while I entered the “make MSVC” step for the visual studio compilation.
I’m sorry, this is still rather non-specific. As I said, we need to know what you did precisely, step-by-step.
The instructions here for compilation using MSVC (see heading with this title) do not make any mention of “
make MSVC”. The previous section, which describes preparing an MSVC project from the full sources does have
make msvc (note lowercase!!). However, if you indeed downloaded the
igraph-0.8.3-msvc.zip source package, you would have run into issues much sooner as there is no configure script included there. Thus I can only guess about what you did, but guessing is not a productive way to solve problems.
If you want to use MSVC, use
igraph-0.8.3-msvc.zip archive and follow the “Compilation using MSVC” section.
Thanks a lot!!..The issues got resolved
