As we all know the official release of Intel's PCSDK beta 2 works with VS2008 or VS2010. And till the time this article is written there is no official announcement from Intel that helps developers to know that they are able to develop apps using SDK with VS2012.
But I recently find a way to use the SDK with vs2012. I found it on different Intel forums and it took me a whole hour to exactly combine the different procedures on different URLs to solve out the issue. And I'm summarizing the quickest and easiest way to do that. All you have to do is follow these simple steps.
Follow these steps
- Copy sample files from folder "program file" in windows directory to My Documents. So that if you uninstall the sdk it will not delete the required file to develop a S/W.
- Open sample\common\libpxcutils.sln in Visual Studio 2012 and rebuild it to regenerate libpxcutils.lib in 2012 format.
- Try to run by pressing F5. You may get warnings like this (Warning1 " warnin MSB8012: TargetPath(C:\Users\Vikas\Docu.... or Warning2 " warning MSB8012: TargetName(libpxcutils) does not match t.........). If so then, Copy the "libpxcutils.lib" either from folder "sample\common\lib\win32" or from ""sample\common\lib\win32\v100" to folder "sample\common\lib\win32\v110".
- Now again rebuild it and Run by pressing F5.
This time it will run without any error. Now to check that everything is ok, just open any sample solution ( from "PCSDK\sample" folder and run it.) It will run without any error.
And now you are able to develop any app or software using Intel's Perceptual Technology. Happy Developing.
