In order to compile
JPScore you need to install the following three software
JPScore depends on some libraries:
- Boost: Needed for Voronoi calculations
- Zlib (optional): Needed if the functionality of JPSfire is used (interaction with FDS)
- CGAL (optional): Needed if AI-Router is used (experimental)
In this tutorial we show how to install
boost using NuGet from within Visual Studio 2017.
Get the code and create a VS-project
git clone https://gitlab.version.fz-juelich.de/jupedsim/jpscore cd jpscore cmake .
Visual Studio: Preparation
Before you proceed make sure your Visual Studio 2017 has some features installed.
In our case we need
NuGet. So if it’s not already installed then click
Tools --> Get Tools and Features
This will start Visual Studio Installer and ask to make changes in Visual Studio. Choose the appropriate packages and proceed.
Visual Studio: Compilation
With Visual Studio 2017 open the created JPScore solution (
and do the following
Right click on the Solution --> Restore NuGet Packages
Maybe Visual Studio 2017 will offer you to restore the packages automatically. See in the following screenshot. In this case you click on
Restore(and be patient …)
jpscoreshould be marked bold (important for running the code later on). If this is not the case, then
right click on jpscore --> Set as startup Project
After this step the project will appear bold (jpscore).
View --> Other Windows --> Open Package Manager Console
and type the following
Update-Package -reinstall -ProjectName core
Update-Package -reinstall -ProjectName jpscore
Build --> Build Solution
If this step is successful then proceed to the next step and run the code
Debug –> Start Without Debugging
This will run jpscore in debug mode.Important! Note that this step although it runs jpscore, the later will complain about a missing inifile. So you have to specify an inifile for `jpscore`.
Debug --> jpscore Properties --> Debugging --> Command Arguments
and type the full path to a demo file. For example:
C:\Users\here full path\demos\scenario_1_corridor\corridor_ini.xml
This snippet shows the logs for this tutorial on a Windows 10 machine and the following screenshot the execution result
If working with the smoke sensor and JPSfire is needed, then you’ll have to
Rerun cmake as follows
cmake JPSFIRE=true .
Install grpc.dependencies.zlib using NuGet:
Right click on jpscore in the solution explorer --> Manage NuGet Packages
and go back to step 3.
