Error in compilation (python.h file not included)

Post by KyriakosTryphonos » Sun Jun 17, 2018 2:57 pm

Hello all,

I am trying to compile Opensees.sln but I am getting some errors because the header file python.h is not included in the directory. I found where the file python.h is located and I included the directory in OpenSeesPy project in order to compile the solution again. After that, I was still getting some errors, so I uninstalled Python from my Pc. I tried to compile again and I am still getting the same following error:

1>------ Build started: Project: OpenSees, Configuration: Debug x64 ------
2>------ Build started: Project: OpenSeesTk, Configuration: Debug x64 ------

Is there a way to fix this issue?

Thanks

Now installed Python 3.6.1 in the location C:\Program Files\Python36 which is the one that VS2017 is searching for. I am still getting one more Linker fatal error:
2>LINK : fatal error LNK1181: cannot open input file 'tcl86t.lib'

tcl86t.lib is located in C:\Program Files\Python36\tcl. I changed the settings in OpenSeesPy project(Additional Include Directories and Additional Include Directories in Linker) to include that library and I am getting more errors now.

Any ideas why this is not working?
