Windows and waf issue (SOLVED)

#1

I’m trying to build the engine on windows 10. Using mingw32 shell I get this message:

Waf: The wscript in ‘e:\DefoldSource\defold\engine\dlib’ is unreadable
Traceback (most recent call last):

Did you install waf manually? Looks like you’re on a different version than the one installed using install_ext.

Ran build.py install_ext and it was fine up to this point:

I’m not on windows so can’t check, but in general I think you should first run the package script package_win32_sdk.sh under script/package. That should create a WindowsKitssomething in a packages folder. When running build.py install_ext …, it expects to download packages from the path pointed to by the –package-path argument. That argument probably should accept local file paths, but I think for now it actually needs to be a url. I usually start a simple web server in my packages folder, using python: python -m SimpleHTTPServer (if using python 2.7, as you should when building defold). Then the install_ext command line should be something like ./scripts/build.py install_ext --platform=x86_64-win32 --package-path=http://0.0.0.0:8000
It looks like the WindowsKit version is slightly off right now, so you’ll probably need to tweak the numbers used in the scripts.

Just confirming that you need to run a HTTP file server for the packages for this step to work currently. It’s a good candidate for the community to improve to allow to run without this necessary.

I made a PR to clarify the install_ext step:

Ran package_win32_sdk.sh. Placed results in the packages folder(WindowsKits-8.1.tar.gz). Using the simple web server I get this error:

And if you open a browser and try the URL? Does the file download?

I had to change it to http://localhost:8000
