Programming Howto:Configure BCI2000 for Compilation
Run the CMake GUI
Double-click "Configure.sh.cmd" in your BCI2000 build directory.
Tell CMake which Qt installation to use
Click "AddEntry" in the CMake window ...
... and enter the path to a Qt directory that is consistent with the compiler you are going to use. Use Qt5_DIR as the name for the new entry. Be aware that the entry is case sensitive
Perform the configuration step
In the CMake window, click "Configure" ...
... and choose a generator that is consistent with your compiler, and the Qt directory chosen above. Then click "Finish" to perform the configuration step.
You will see a list of targets scrolling by, and a number of new entries in the variable list at the top of the window, marked in red.
Choose build options
Make sure the "Grouped" checkbox is checked, and configure the build by customizing values in the "BUILD" ...
... and "EXTENSIONS" group. Then, click "Generate" to create build files.
When CMake displays its "Generating done" message, ...
... your BCI2000 build directory will now contain a VisualStudio solution file, as well as a number of additional CMake-generated files.
