Issues and Issue Reporting
All known issues are listed on our Issue Tracker. New issues can be reported there, as well.
CSE is configured as a CMake project. Currently, CMake is only configured to generate Microsoft Visual Studio solutions compiled with Microsoft Visual C++ (other generators and compilers will not work). A batch script is set up for automatic project setup. Simply double click or run the build.bat script in the root directory. All products (e.g., CSE.exe) will be placed in a directory called msvc.
Automated testing of your build can be executed by running
ctest -C Release
from the msvc\build directory.
- Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 with Visual C++ and Support for Windows XP (v141_xp toolset)
- CMake 3.10 or later
