Visual Servoing Platform  version 3.2.1 under development (2019-06-20)
Tutorial: Installation from source for Windows with Visual C++ 2017 (vc15)

In this tutorial you will learn how to install ViSP from source on Windows 10 with Visual C++. These steps have been tested on Windows 10 (64 bit), with CMake 3.13.1 and Visual Studio Community 2017.

Note
Concerning ViSP installation, we provide also other Tutorials.

Install prerequisites

Visual Studio

Visual Studio Community 2017 could be downloaded from https://www.visualstudio.com/downloads/. During a fresh installation enable "Desktop development with C++" workload to get "Windows 10 SDK". This SDK allows usage of the Graphical Device Interface (GDI) useful to display images in a window thanks to vpDisplayGDI class. After a fresh installation, start Visual Studio and create an empty C++ project to install the common tools for Visual C++ 2017.

If you already have Visual Studio Community 2017, you can check if "Desktop Development with C++" workload is activated and if "Windows 10 SDK" is enabled following instructions given here that we resume:

  1. Find the Visual Studio Installer on your computer. Select Start, and then scroll to the letter V, where it's listed as Visual Studio Installer
  2. Click or tap to start the installer, and then choose "Modify"
  3. From the Workloads screen, check if "Desktop Development with C++" workload is activated and if "Windows 10 SDK" is enabled like in the following image
    img-msvc15-config.png
  4. Choose Modify again.
  5. After the new workloads and components are installed, choose Launch.

CMake

CMake could be download from http://www.cmake.org. Download the latest release for Windows win64-x64 platform (at the time this tuto was written it was the file cmake-3.13.1-win64-x64.msi). To install just double click on the msi file.

Git

Install Git for Windows from https://git-for-windows.github.io/. This installation allows then to use git in a cmd Command Prompt.

Create a workspace

If not already done, create a workspace that will contain all ViSP source, build, data set and optional 3rd parties. This workspace is here set to C:\visp-ws folder, but it could be set to any other location.

To create the workspace, open a cmd Command Prompt (a fast way to launch this window is to press the Win + R keys on your keyboard. Then, type cmd or cmd.exe and press Enter or click/tap OK) and run the following to create a workspace environment var named VISP_WS:

C:\> setx VISP_WS "C:\visp-ws"
C:\> exit

Open a new cmd Command Prompt and create the corresponding folder

C:\> mkdir %VISP_WS%
C:\> exit

Quick ViSP installation

In this section, we give minimal instructions to build ViSP from source just to try ViSP without entering in Advanced ViSP installation.

  • Open a new cmd Command Prompt and get ViSP source code in the workspace
    C:\> cd %VISP_WS%
    C:\> git clone https://github.com/lagadic/visp.git
  • Create a build directory
    C:\> mkdir %VISP_WS%\visp-build-vc15
    C:\> cd %VISP_WS%\visp-build-vc15
  • Run CMake in build directory (here the generator is chosen for Visual Studio 15 2017 and 64 bits hardware):
    C:\> cmake -G "Visual Studio 15 2017 Win64" %VISP_WS%\visp
  • Build and install ViSP (installation doesn't need administrator privileges)
    C:\> cmake --build . --config Release --target install
  • ViSP is now installed in %VISP_WS%\visp-build-vc15\install folder
  • Modify the Path var to add %VISP_WS%\visp-build-vc15\install\x64\vc15\bin corresponding to the path to ViSP libraries.
  • Set VISP_DIR var to help CMake to find ViSP as a 3rd party
    C:\> setx VISP_DIR "%VISP_WS%\visp-build-vc15\install"
    C:\> exit
Note
Since setx command is not able to handle a var that has more than 1024 characters (which could be the case of Path var), to modify Path environment variable do the following:
  1. Open the Start Search, type in "env", and choose "Edit environment variables for your account"
  2. Click the "Environment Variables..." button
  3. Under the "User Variables" section (the upper half), find the row with "Path" in the first column, and click edit
  4. The "Edit environment variable" UI will appear.
  5. Click "New" button to add a new line with %VISP_WS%\visp-build-vc15\install\x64\vc15\bin

To have a trial, just jump to Install ViSP data set before running some binaries that you just build or jump to Next tutorial. You can later come back to the Advanced ViSP installation.

Advanced ViSP installation

Install 3rd parties

ViSP is interfaced with several 3rd party libraries. The complete list is provided here. We recommend to install OpenCV 3rd party in the workspace. If you have an Intel Realsense depth camera you may also install librealsense 3rd party. If your camera is a PointGrey you may install FlyCapture 3rd party, while if your camera is a Basler, you may rather install Pylon 3rd party. If you want to be able to detect a QR code you may install zbar 3rd party. To use optimized matrix operations you may install Eigen3 3rd party. Other 3rd parties are optional and should be considered only by expert developers.

OpenCV 3rd party

1. Get OpenCV

First you have to get OpenCV:

  • From http://opencv.org/releases.html download the latest OpenCV for Windows. In our case we got opencv-4.1.0-vc14_vc15.exe Win pack installer. The same procedure could be applied with the previous OpenCV 4.0.0 release downloading opencv-4.0.0-vc14_vc15.exe.
  • Extract the content of the archive in your workspace %VISP_WS%.
    img-win10-extract-opencv.png
  • The installer extract all the material in %VISP_WS%\opencv.
  • We strongly recommend to rename this folder to a name that contain OpenCV version like %VISP_WS%\opencv-4.1.0.
Note
OpenCV 4.1.0 win pack installer contains prebuild OpenCV libraries build with Visual Studio 14 2015 Win64 (vc14) and Visual Studio 15 2017 Win64 (vc15). These libraries are located in %VISP_WS%\opencv-4.1.0\build\x64\vc14 and %VISP_WS%\opencv-4.1.0\build\x64\vc15 respectively.

2. Complete OpenCV installation

Now you have to complete OpenCV installation setting some environment vars:

  • In order that ViSP detects OpenCV you have to set OpenCV_DIR environment variable. Start up a cmd Command Prompt and enter:
    C:\> setx OpenCV_DIR "%VISP_WS%\opencv-4.1.0\build"
    C:\> exit
    where %VISP_WS%\opencv-4.1.0\build is where you have installed OpenCV. Inside this folder you should have a file named OpenCVConfig.cmake.
  • You have also to add the location of OpenCV libraries corresponding to Visual Studio 15 2017 Win64 usage in the Path environment variable. Open the "Edit environment variable" UI, and modify Path to add a new line with %VISP_WS%\opencv-4.1.0\build\x64\vc15\bin.

Eigen3 3rd party

Even if Eigen3 is designed as a template we recommend to install the library with Visual Studio.

1. Get Eigen3

  • Download the latest Eigen3 release from http://eigen.tuxfamily.org. At the time this tutorial was written we downloaded eigen-eigen-323c052e1731.tar.gz tarball corresponding to Eigen 3.3.7.
  • Extract the content of the archive in %VISP_WS%.
  • We recommend to rename %VISP_WS%\eigen-eigen-323c052e1731 in %VISP_WS%\eigen-3.3.7

2. Build and install Eigen3 from source

  • Create a build directory
    C:\> mkdir %VISP_WS%\eigen-3.3.7\build-vc15
    C:\> cd %VISP_WS%\eigen-3.3.7\build-vc15
  • Run CMake in build directory (here the generator is chosen for Visual Studio 15 2017 and 64 bits hardware and installation folder is set to %VISP_WS%\eigen-3.3.7\build-vc15\install folder):
    C:\> cmake -G "Visual Studio 15 2017 Win64" %VISP_WS%\eigen-3.3.7 -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=%VISP_WS%\eigen-3.3.7\build-vc15\install
  • Build and install Eigen3 (installation doesn't need administrator privileges)
    C:\> cmake --build . --config Release --target install
  • eigen is now installed in %VISP_WS%\eigen-3.3.7\build-vc15\install folder

3. Complete Eigen3 installation

Now you have to complete Eigen3 installation setting some environment vars:

  • In order that ViSP detects Eigen3 you have to set EIGEN_DIR environment variable. Start up a cmd Command Prompt and enter:
    C:\> setx Eigen3_DIR "%VISP_WS%\eigen-3.3.7\build-vc15\install\share\eigen3\cmake"
    C:\> exit
    where %VISP_WS%\eigen-3.3.7\build-vc15\install is where you have installed Eigen3. Inside the folder %VISP_WS%\eigen-3.3.7\build-vc15\install\share\eigen3\cmake you should have a file named Eigen3Config.cmake.
  • There is no need to set Path environment var since Eigen3 is a template that has no library.

librealsense 3rd party

I you have an Intel RealSense Depth camera (SR300 or D400 series), you may install librealsense 2.x in order to use vpRealSense2 class. Otherwise you can skip this section.

1. Install Intel Realsense SDK 2.0

Intel Realsense SDK 2.0 contains librealsense. To install this SDK:

  • Go to https://github.com/IntelRealSense/librealsense/releases
  • Download Intel.RealSense.SDK-win10.exe corresponding to the last Intel Realsense SDK 2.0 release. At the time this tutorial was written, we downloaded Intel.RealSense.SDK-win10.exe corresponding to build 2.21.0.
  • Execute Intel.RealSense.SDK-win10.exe and follow default installation steps.

2. Complete Intel Realsense SDK 2.0 installation

To finalize the installation, add the location of realsense2.dll library in the Path environment variable. Open the "Edit environment variable" UI, and modify Path to add a new line with C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel RealSense SDK 2.0\bin\x64.

PCL 3rd party

PCL library could be installed to extend vpRealSense2 capabilities to acquire a point cloud. It could be also used to consider a point cloud as depth feature in the generic model-based tracker when using vpMbGenericTracker class. If you don't have an Intel Realsense Depth camera (SR300 or D400 series) or if you are not interested in model-based tracking using depth as feature you can skip this section.

1. Install PCL from all-in-one installer

There exists in https://github.com/PointCloudLibrary/pcl/releases all-in-one installer that allows to install PCL and third-parties easily. Be careful to use the version that match your compiler. For Visual Studio 15 2017:

2. Complete PCL installation

To finalize the installation, add the location of pcl_common_<debug|release>.dll and OpenNI2.dll libraries in the Path environment variable. Open the "Edit environment variable" UI, and modify Path to add respectively:

  • a new line with C:\Program Files\PCL 1.9.1\bin
  • a new line with C:\Program Files\OpenNI2\Redist

FlyCapture 3rd party

I you have a PointGrey or FLIR USB 2.0, USB 3.0, GigE or FireWire camera (DragonFly2, Flea3...), you may install FlyCapture. Otherwise you can skip this section.

Complete installation instructions are given here. We recap hereafter the main instructions to install FlyCapture SDK under Windows:

  • Download the latest FlyCapture2 Full SDK for your camera from Point Grey’s download site. On the download page, select your product family and "Windows 10 64 bit" as operating system. At the time this tutorial we written we selected "FlyCapture 2.11.3.164 SDK - Windows (64 bit)" to download FlyCapture_2.11.3.164_x64.exe file.
  • Double-click the downloaded software executable and follow the installation instructions.
  • Select the correct driver for the camera when prompted by the installation instructions.
  • Reboot the system.

Pylon 3rd party

If you have a Basler FireWire, Camera Link, GigE or USB3.0 camera, you may install Pylon SDK. Otherwise you can skip this section.

To install Pylon:

  • Visit Basler Software Download page to download and install the SDK corresponding to your platform. At the time this tutorial we written we selected "Pylon 5.0.11 Camera Software Suite Windows" to download Basler_pylon_5.0.11.10913.exe file.
  • Double-click on downloaded file and follow the installation instructions.
  • Be carreful to select "Developer" profile during the installation in order to install Pylon SDK headers (.h) besides the dll.
    img-win10-pylon-developer.png
  • Click then on "Next" button.
  • Select how your Basler camera is connected to the computer (USB, GigE, FireWire, Camera Link), then click on "Next" button.
  • Keep the default destination folder as C:\Program Files\Basler\pylon 5\ and click on "Next" button
  • In the "Ready to install" panel, click on the "Install" button
  • Reboot the system.

zbar 3rd party

If you want to work with QR codes (see Tutorial: Bar code detection), we recommend to install zbar 3rd party. Otherwise you can skip this section.

Note
Since ViSP 3.1.0 we provide also AprilTag detection capabilities that are available without 3rd party installation (see Tutorial: AprilTag marker detection).

To install zbar you need to build the library from source. There is a fork of the library available from GitHub (https://github.com/dani4/ZBarWin64) and adapted for compiling under Visual following the steps:

1. Get zbar

  • Get ZBarWin64 source code from Github repository. To this end open a cmd Command Prompt and hit:
    C:\> cd %VISP_WS%
    C:\> git clone https://github.com/dani4/ZBarWin64

2. Build zbar from source

  • Then open %VISP_WS%\ZBarWin64\zbar64.sln solution file with Visual Studio C++
  • Select "Release" and "x64" configuration. Then to build zbar library enter menu "Build \> Build Solution" or hit "Ctrl+Shift+B".
    img-win10-msvc15-zbar-build.png

3. Complete zbar installation

  • To complete the installation, set ZBAR_DIR environment variable:
    C:\> setx ZBAR_DIR "%VISP_WS%\ZBarWin64"
    C:\> exit
  • You have also to add the location of zbar and iconv libraries in the Path environment variable. Open the "Edit environment variable" UI, and modify Path to add 2 new lines, one with %VISP_WS%\ZBarWin64\x64\Release, another with %VISP_WS%\ZBarWin64\zbar\libiconv\dll_x64.

Get ViSP source code

There are different ways to get ViSP source code.

  • You can download the latest release as a zip or a tarball. Once visp-x.y.z.tar.gz or visp-x.y.z.zip is downloaded, uncompress the file in %VISP_WS%\visp\visp-x.y.z using for axample WinRAR.
  • You can also download a daily snapshot. Once visp-snapshot-yyyy-mm-dd.tar.gz is downloaded, uncompress the file in %VISP_WS%\visp\visp-x.y.z using for axample WinRAR.
  • Or you get the cutting-edge ViSP from GitHub repository using the git command line tool:
    C:\> cd %VISP_WS%
    C:\> git clone https://github.com/lagadic/visp.git

We suppose now that ViSP source is in %VISP_WS%\visp.

Configure ViSP from source

The goal of the configuration step is now to use CMake to produce a Visual Studio C++ solution file that will be located in %VISP_WS%/visp-build-vc15.

  • Launch CMake (cmake-gui) and complete the source code and binaries location as in the next image.
    img-cmake-win10-msvc15-visp-launch.png
  • Click then on "Configure" button.
    img-cmake-win10-msvc15-visp-create-folder.png
  • Click on "Yes" to create the %VISP_WS%/visp-build-vc15 folder.
  • Select then your compiler "Visual Studio 15 2017 Win64" and click on "Finish" button.
    img-cmake-win10-msvc15-msvc-version.png
  • This will start CMake configuration. As shown in the next image, Eigen3, Flycapture, GDI (Graphical Device Interface), OpenCV, OpenMP, Pylon, Realsense2 and Zbar 3rd parties are automatically detected.
    img-cmake-win10-msvc15-visp-config.png
    Note
    Installation folder is set to %VISP_WS%/visp-build-vc15/install. If you want to change the installation folder to C:\Program Files (x86)\ViSP, make sure that you have administrator privileges to write in that folder before modifying CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX.
    Warning
    If you forgot to set Eigen3_DIR environment var, you will get the following warning in cmake_gui:
    CMake Warning at CMakeLists.txt:1156 (message):
    Eigen3 config file is detected in C:/visp-ws/eigen-3.3.7/build-vc15. Using
    C:/visp-ws/eigen-3.3.7/build-vc15/Eigen3Config.cmake doesn't allow to use a
    valid Eigen3 include dir: C://include/eigen3. Modify Eigen3_DIR to point
    to Eigen3Config.cmake file located in Eigen3 installation folder or turn
    USE_EIGEN3 OFF.
    We strongly recommend to fix this warning. To this end:
    • close cmake-gui
    • set Eigen3_DIR environment var running setx Eigen3_DIR "%VISP_WS%\\eigen-3.3.7\\build-vc15\\install\\share\\eigen3\\cmake"
    • open again cmake-gui
    • delete the cache using menu File > Delete Cache
    • and configure again ViSP.
    At this point, you should no more see the warning.
  • Click then on "Configure" button. All the red lines should disappear.
    img-cmake-win10-msvc15-visp-config2.png
    Note
    The default configuration lead to the creation of a shared library (with .dll extension). This is the default configuration that is recommended. If you want to create rather a static library (with .lib extension) you have to uncheck the BUILD_SHARED_LIBS option to disable DLL creation.
  • To finish the configuration, click on "Generate" button.
    img-cmake-win10-msvc15-visp-generate.png
  • Once the generation is done, in %VISP_WS%/visp-build-vc15 folder you have the Visual Studio VISP.sln generated solution file.

Build and install ViSP libraries

  • To build ViSP just double click on %VISP_WS%/visp-build-vc15/VISP.sln solution file. This action will open ViSP project in Visual Studio C++. By default, Visual Studio opens the solution in Debug configuration. Modify the configuration to "Release".
    img-win10-msvc15-visp-open.png
  • Enter menu "Build \> Build Solution" to build ViSP or hit "Ctrl+Shift+B".
  • At the end of the build process you should have the following indicating that all the build succeeded.
    img-win10-msvc15-visp-build-end.png
  • Now to install ViSP, build "INSTALL" project. To this end, apply a left click on "INSTALL" to select the project, then a right click to enter in the "Build" menu.
    img-win10-msvc15-visp-install.png
  • At the end of the installation, you should have the following.
    img-win10-msvc15-visp-install-end.png
  • As shown in the previous image, all the headers but also the generated libraries are copied in %VISP_WS\visp-build-vc15\install folder; headers and libraries in include and x64/vc15 subfolders respectively.
  • This ends ViSP installation in "Release" configuration. Now in %VISP_WS%/visp-build-vc15/install/x64/vc15/bin folder you have ViSP DLL libraries corresponding to ViSP modules.
    img-win10-msvc15-visp-explorer-install.png
  • Note that you can also build ViSP in Debug configuration. In that case, all the library names are suffixed by "d" character (libvisp_core320d.dll...).

Set Path environment var

Modify the Path var to add the path to ViSP dll libraries. To this end open the "Edit environment variable" UI, and modify Path to add a new line with %VISP_WS%\visp-build-vc15\install\x64\vc15\bin.

Set VISP_DIR environment var

In order to ease ViSP detection by CMake when ViSP is used as a 3rd party in an external project, like the one described in the Tutorial: How to create and build a CMake project that uses ViSP on Unix or Windows, you may set VISP_DIR environment variable with the path to the VISPConfig.cmake file:

C:\> setx VISP_DIR "%VISP_WS%\visp-build-vc15\install"
C:\> exit

Install ViSP data set

Some ViSP examples and tests require data (images, video, models) that are not part of ViSP source code but available in a separate archive named visp-images-x.y.z.zip. This archive could be downloaded from http://visp.inria.fr/download page. We provide here after the way to install these data if you want to run ViSP examples or tests. Note that ViSP tutorials are not using ViSP data set.

  • Download visp-images-3.2.0.zip from https://visp.inria.fr/download and uncompress it in your workspace %VISP_WS%.
    img-win10-visp-images.png
  • ViSP examples and tests are able to detect automatically the location of the requested data if you position an environment variable called VISP_INPUT_IMAGE_PATH. In our case, this variable should be set to %VISP_WS%\visp-images-3.2.0. Open a cmd Command Prompt and run
    C:\> setx VISP_INPUT_IMAGE_PATH %VISP_WS%\visp-images-3.2.0
    C:\> exit
  • From now, you can try to run ViSP examples and tests. For example, if you want to run %VISP_WS%\visp-build-vc15\example\device\display\Release\displayGDI.exe, open a cmd Command Prompt, enter in the right folder and run:
    C:\> cd %VISP_WS%\visp-build-vc15\example\device\display\Release
    C:\> displayGDI.exe
    A click to close the windows...
    A click to display a cross...
    Cross position: 392, 306
    A click to exit the program...
    Bye

Tips and tricks

How to take into account a newly installed 3rd party

Since all 3rd parties are optional you may have started to install only some of them. Imagine that you just installed a new third-party, or that you upgraded the version of this 3rd party. The next step is to go back to the build folder, configure ViSP with CMake to detect the newly installed third-party library and build again ViSP. This could be achieved with:

$ cd $VISP_WS/visp-build-msvc15
$ cmake ../visp

Here you can check the content of the ViSP-third-party.txt file and see if the newly installed 3rd party is well detected.

Finally, you need to rebuild and install ViSP with:

$ cmake --build . --config Release --target install

How to uninstall ViSP

After ViSP installation, you can remove installed material using:

$ cd $VISP_WS/visp-build-msvc15
$ cmake --build . --config Release --target uninstall

How to build only ViSP libraries

If you want to build only ViSP modules libraries, nor the examples, tutorials and tests:

$ cd $VISP_WS/visp-build-msvc15
$ cmake --build . --config Release --target visp_modules

How to build a ViSP specific module

If you want to build a given module and all the dependencies:

$ cd $VISP_WS/visp-build-msvc15
$ cmake --build . --config Release --target visp_<module_name>

For example to build the model-based tracker module named mbt, run:

$ cd $VISP_WS/visp-build-msvc15
$ cmake --build . --config Release --target visp_mbt

Which are the 3rd party libraries that are used in ViSP ?

To see which are the optional 3rd parties that are found during the configuration stage and that will be used by ViSP during the build you can have a look to the text file named ViSP-third-party.txt and located in $VISP_WS/visp-build. We provide hereafter an example of a possible content of this file that contains also build info.

$ type $VISP_WS/visp-build-vc15/ViSP-third-party.txt
