having trouble compiling nvda from source

Travis Siegel
Posted the last one under the wrong subject (sorry about that).

When I attempt to follow the directions for compiling from source, I get
the following error.


C:\source\nvda>scons source
Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "C:\source\nvda\scons.py", line 10, in <module>
     import SCons.Script
ImportError: No module named SCons.Script

Doing a refresh of the checkout process doesn't help.  What am I doing
wrong?

Obviously, NVDA can be compiled from source, since folks are doing it,
but apparently, either I have an incomplete archive, or the directions
in the developer documentation is wrong.  Any assistance would be
appreciated.

Do you used this command for the first cloning?
"git clone --recursive https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda.git"

I do indeed have the miscdeps archive as part of my nvda checkout.  Should I do something with it?

Well, I deleted everything, and checked out again.

I still get access denyed if I try to run scons like this:

scons source

However, if I do this:

python scons.py source

I get a different error.

windows sdk 7.1a could not be found.


That's new, but I don't know to what it refers.  <sigh>

Hi,
When you install Visual Studio 2015 (Express or other editions), you need to
tell the installer to install C++ components for Windows XP and others.
Cheers,
Joseph

*growl* I could have sworn I installed everything it had to install,
just to prevent issues like this, but I'll do the install again and
verify I have everything checked.

Thanks, hopefully I'll be able to compile soon. :)

Ah.

What directories do you have under c:\program files\windows kits (Maybe x86)

It's in x86, and I don't have 7.1, I have 10, 8.1, and netfxsdk

Definitely looks like I need to install again.  Guess I missed a checkbox somewhere. <shrug>

Thanks for the help.  At least I know where the problem is now. :)

Ok, after deleting my current source tree, downloading again, then reinstalling visual studio (community edition) making sure to select install everything), I can now compile NVDA with no trouble.  Thanks for the help guys.

Re: having trouble compiling nvda from source

Joseph Lee

Hi,
That’s great to hear. I suggest starting out with learning how commands work behind the scenes so you can get started with understanding the source code better.

Cheers,

Joseph

Ok, after deleting my current source tree, downloading again, then reinstalling visual studio (community edition) making sure to select install everything), I can now compile NVDA with no trouble.  Thanks for the help guys.

Thanks for the help.  At least I know where the problem is now. :)

Ah.

What directories do you have under c:\program files\windows kits (Maybe x86)

Thanks, hopefully I'll be able to compile soon. :)

Well, I deleted everything, and checked out again.
 
I still get access denyed if I try to run scons like this:
 
scons source
 
However, if I do this:
 
python scons.py source
 
I get a different error.
 
windows sdk 7.1a could not be found.
 
 
That's new, but I don't know to what it refers.  <sigh>

Posted the last one under the wrong subject (sorry about that).
 
When I attempt to follow the directions for compiling from source, I
get the following error.
 
 
C:\source\nvda>scons source
Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "C:\source\nvda\scons.py", line 10, in <module>
        import SCons.Script
ImportError: No module named SCons.Script
 
Doing a refresh of the checkout process doesn't help.  What am I
doing wrong?
 
Obviously, NVDA can be compiled from source, since folks are doing
it, but apparently, either I have an incomplete archive, or the
directions in the developer documentation is wrong.  Any assistance
would be appreciated.
