RE: Building libssh2 in Windows using CMAKE

Hi Alex,

Thanks for quick response.

I already did that. I ran CMake in the parent directory of ‘src’ which is the libssh2 itself but I’m still seeing the same problem.

Here’s my terminal.

Where :

C:\libssh2-master - is where I saved my downloaded libssh2 from github
C:\libssh2-master\src - is the location of the source code


C:\libssh2-master>cmake C:\libssh2-master\src
-- Building for: Visual Studio 10 2010
CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:40 (include):
  include could not find load file:


CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:44 (include):

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:209 (add_feature_info):

I’d like to change my application to use libssh2 instead of libssh but I’m getting an error from the very start of cmake.

I downloaded the code from https://github.com/libssh2/libssh2 and followed what is written in INSTALL_CMAKE

First I run :

cmake <libssh2 source location> // I’m currently in libssh2\src directory
You're running CMake in the wrong directory. It should be the top-level source directory, ie, the parent of src.

Sorry for the woolly language: by 'running CMake in' I meant the CMake source directory is wrong. The target directory (usually the current directory) can be whatever you like.
