Installing and Setting up Wt for Visual Studio

Added by Andile Cele almost 2 years ago

I want to create a web application using Wt, but I am struggling to set it up and start coding on my chosen IDE, which is Visual Studio 2022.

Can anyone please share how can I do it. I tried building with Cmake and I got errors in response. These are the errors:

Cmake Error at C:/Program Files/CMake/share/cmake-3.22/Modules/FindPackageHandleStandardArgs.cmake:230 (message):
Could NOT find Boost (missing: Boost_INCLUDE_DIR program_options filesystem
thread) (Requires at least version "1.50')

Hi, just to be sure: Did you actually install "boost"? The message Could NOT find Boost indicates that it is missing or not configured properly.

Have a read here on how to get boost to work:
