This page describes how you can setup your extensions development environment for ACRE2, allowing you to properly build extensions with Visual Studio.


Build Project (Windows)

This is done automatically when doing a release build with compile option.

  • Open a command prompt and navigate to the folder in which you downloaded or Git cloned out the ACRE2 source.


  • Navigate to the extensions\vcproj directory.
  • Run cmake .. -A Win32 (replace generator for any other 32-bit Visual Studio generator)
  • Compile projects.


  • Navigate to the extensions\vcproj64 directory.
  • Run cmake .. -A x64 (replace generator for any other 64-bit Visual Studio generator)
  • Compile projects.

Extensions files will also be copied to their appropriate locations automatically after compilation (ready for test and release builds).
