Are pre-compiled binaries available for Visual C++ community edition?


#1

Are pre-compiled binaries available for those using Visual Studio 2017 Community Edition? If not for version 3.2.1 ,will they be available for version 3.3? This question posted because I only see folders up to 2015 in tutorial examples.

VS2017 is able to use VS2015/2013/2012/2010 dynamic import library. So if you are OK with using glfw3.dll file, then existing binaries will work fine with your VS2017.

For static library you will need to build it yourself. It’s not very complicated, just follow steps here: http://www.glfw.org/docs/latest/compile_guide.html#compile_generate
