I have downloaded the windows source and for example
C:\Users\iliak\Elektron-SDK-1.5.0.L1.win.rrg>cmake CMakeLists.txt -G "Visual Studio 12 2013 Win64"
in the first example from : https://developers.refinitiv.com/elektron/elektron-sdk-cc/learning
and tried to compile example 1, and received the following error
LINK : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file 'C:\Users\iliak\Elektron-SDK-1.5.0.L1.win.rrg\Cpp-C\Eta\Libs\WIN_64_VS120\Debug_MDd\libxml2.lib'
the file is missing? how can I build it or where can I download it?
It looks like the example you want to try is an external MRN example(EMA Tutorials\step5), correct? It's a separate package from the original package from ESDK devkit. The CMake command I mentioned in the first post is for building an example in the ESDK package.
Anyway, if you just want to build EMA MRN example, you can follow instruction from
Section to setup environment variable for the EMA Tutorial example.
and you need to download zlib from the external site for MRN example as described in the following link
It uses the lib to unpack MRN data to JSON message.
It looks like the project files from the example do not update to match with the structure of the new version of ESDK.
In ESDK version 1.5, it looks like the XML library has been moved to folder <Elektron-SDK-1.5.0.L1.win.rrg>\installdb\WIN_64_VS120\lib. So you might need to modify the link option in the project to a new path. Anyway I would recommend you to generate a makefile for all examples in ESDK using the instruction from
And then, you can open the visual studio solution file from the example folder to see the setting.
i tried that, and then run the solution with around 250 project and build them (there were few warnings, but no errors)
then i open the tutorial step 1 that i downloaded , (i did not find match example in the large folder, we need to integrate to MRN so if you have a better example as part of the 250 projects that would be great)
cmake -HC:\Users\iliak\Elektron-SDK-1.5.0.L1.win.rrg\Elektron-SDK-1.5.0.L1.win.rrg -Bcmake_vs2013 -G "Visual Studio 12 2013 Win64"
and when i update the linkes (include dirs and libraries to the new generated folder at
i have another error, Ema.h does not exists (and i check there are no include dir inside Ema of the new generated folder (C:\cmake_vs2013)
