Build the C++ API

This section describes the build process for Windows and Linux.

To build the C++ API on Windows

NOTE:

To build on Windows, you need at least Microsoft Visual Studio 2015.

  1. Switch to the cppapi/bin directory.
  2. At the Visual Studio command prompt, run nmake -f Makefile.

    This command creates a file called filtersdk.lib. You can statically link this into your own binaries in order to use the Filter SDK.

To build the C++ API on Linux

  1. Switch to the cppapi/bin directory.
  2. Run the appropriate command:

    GCC 5

    export CXXFLAGS="-std=c++11"
    make

    GCC 6

    make

    This command creates a file called filtersdk.a. You can link this into your own binaries in order to use the Filter SDK.
