Talk:Programming Reference:Build System (obsolete)
As of January 2010, the following information on this page is outdated:
- It is no longer necessary to download and install Qt, as BCI2000 comes with a stripped-down version of Qt and its runtime libraries.
- For MSVC compilers, a runtime version of Qt is provided, so it is no longer necessary to compile Qt when using an MSVC compiler.
- Differences found between data files in the regression test: BCI2000 comes with its own random number generator to ensure consistent random number generation across repeated runs, and for different runtime libraries. This random number generator allows to specify a random seed value in the RandomSeed BCI2000 parameter. Thus, there should not be any differences in the regression test except for time stamps, which are ignored anyway.
- The Release/Debug directory issue with MSVC has been solved using the CMake prefix hack.
