Click on the Forum title, e.g. on the "Forums by Category" page, to read a sequence of postings to the Forum and its threads all in one page. If you are only interested in one thread or the thread following a specific posting, click the thread or the posting, which takes you to a smaller page, which contains only the part you are interested in and may be easier to navigate.
Messages are "chained" if there are only replies at the first level, i.e. 1/1.html, 1/1/1.html etc. In case of "chained" messages the message number is replaced by the icon and there is no indentation.
Inline: Display the subject line only or also the text of the posting(s); for the choice "All" the "Outline" choices are switched off.
|1||0||1||no text / full text of posting|
|2||1||All||text for level 1 only / text for All postings|
Outline: Choose the depth of the posting thread, successive toggle controls provide increasing detail.
|1||2||1||2 levels / 1 level (original posting)|
|2||3||2||3 levels / 2 levels|
|3||3||All||3 levels / all levels (all postings)|
OK, I figured out what happened. It is intimately related to the fact that CMake 3.2.1 looks quite different from the CMake displayed in the installation guide for Windows.
As I am using Coin3D, I knew I had to add -DCOIN_NOT_DLL and -DSOWIN_NOT_DLL into CMAKE_CXX_FLAGS, so I used the AddEntry button to do that. Pushing Configure made that new entry disappear, but I forged ahead and got many thousands of errors from the compiler.
What I didn't know (then) is that there are a bunch of configuration options marked Advanced, and to see them you must click the Advanced checkbox in CMake. There is an entry for CMAKE_CXX_FLAGS that includes important stuff, including -DWIN32. What happened is that my definition overwrote the correct definition the first time I pushed Configure, and it stayed for subsequent pushes -- as a result none of the necessary flags got set, except for my two -- hence the disaster.
Starting over, I added those two flags to CMAKE_CXX_FLAGS in the advanced section. I had been puzzled about not being able to select static/shared libraries; they are also in the advanced section. Now there is just one error: the usual line 53 in G4OpenInventorWin.cc that must be commented out for Coin3D; it's easily fixed.
I strongly suggest the Windows installation documentation be updated. Better, don't mark any options Advanced, but rather put them into an Advanced group.
