[brailleblaster] Re: Build environment setup

Keith,

You are sure you have the 64-bit Windows swt.jar file, right?

Yep, I copied them all. Only one of the errors seems to be related to the
DLL's. The other seems to be related to SWT but I could be just interpreting
it wrong.

I'll give these a try.

Thanks.

Keith,

I am attaching the latest version of the DLLs that I compiled from the
repositories to this message. They are the ones I am using. See if that
makes any difference.

Also, you copied all of the files in the brailleblaster\lib folder into your
dist\lib folder before you compiled brailleblaster.jar, didn't you?

Not sure of the DLL version. It is V. 1.3.0 of BB and the dates in the zip
file are all 10/5/2011.

Keith,

I don't know if it would make any difference or not, but what version of the
DLLs are you using? Your setup is exactly the same as mine and I didn't have
any of those errors. I am trying to think of what might be different.

John, it looks like all the files are there. There must be something
different about the way you are building and what I get by just cloning the
repo.

BTW, I'm running Windows 7 64-bit and the 64-bit version of JRE 1.7. 

Keith

Please let us know what you find out. For others on the list, once you have
cloned the BrailleBlaster repository and copied the binary files into their
proper directories you can get the latest version by using the command hg
pull anywhere in the directory tree and then running ant in the base
directory.

are not in the repository because they are binary jar files. The error
message about the Display type means that the SWT library id not in the
dist/lib folder. Etc. So if you get an old release and copy the libraries to
their corresponding places in the directory tree from the repository you
should be fine.

However, right now I'm busy with bugs and new features in the liblouis and
liblouisutdml libraries. Maybe I'll get around to fixing the website when
the bugs are stubborn.

when in the same directory so the problem seems to be something with the way
I have the project or environment variables set up.
