saw your post over on r/gamedev and I thought I'd give your engine a look, sounds cool.
I've never used anything that requires python before so I went and installed that, I used the neat little java tool to generate myself a project and then when I build I get the following error:
Error 3 error MSB3073: The command "python C:\chillifarts\chillifarts\Projects\Windows\....\ChilliSource\Tools\Scripts\copy_windows_resources.py C:\chillifarts\chillifarts\Projects\Windows\ C:\chillifarts\chillifarts\Projects\Windows\bin\Debug\
:VCEnd" exited with code 9009. C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft.Cpp\v4.0\V120\Microsoft.CppCommon.targets 202 5 chillifarts
Is this something you've seen before/is expected? Sorry if I've jumped the gun and missed a step on the project setup process.
The only time I've seen something like that come up it was because the user had an out of date version of Java. Could you confirm you have Java 8 installed? The easiest way to do that is to open Command Prompt and type the following:
If that returns something other than java version "1.8.0_40" then you'll need to install the latest version.
If this isn't the issue, could you let me know the versions of Python, Visual Studio, Java and Windows you are using and I'll look into further when I'm back in the office tomorrow.
Thanks for the response Ian,
I've got the latest version of JRE installed (I'll double check specifically which number that is when I get back home tonight) and the latest version of Python installed on a Windows 8.1 machine. Completely fresh (brand new laptop) so there's not conflicting older versions of java or python installed.
I've just now realized this might be a silly question, but do I need the JDK as well as the JRE? Because I realized I only installed the JRE.
Hi again Adrian,
I think I now know what the issues is: the windows python installer doesn't add itself to the Path environment variable. To do that you need to:
- Open Control Panel
- Go to System
- Select Advanced System Settings
- Down the bottom press the Environment Variables button
- In the bottom panel find Path and select Edit
- Add the python install location to the end. Note that the list is semi-colon delimited.
I'll make sure these instructions are added to the setting up tutorial.
Hopefully that solves your problem!
Hey sorry for the late response, work's been kinda hectic.
Thank you so much for that, that was exactly the problem. It builds perfectly now.
Thanks for taking the time to follow up.
