Can someone guide me through on how to install gtest in windows, I have MingW.
This is what I saw in the gtest instruction
When building GoogleTest as a standalone project, the typical workflow starts with
git clone https://github.com/google/googletest.git -b release-1.10.0 cd googletest # Main directory of the cloned repository. mkdir build # Create a directory to hold the build output. cd build cmake .. # Generate native build scripts for GoogleTest.
once I run cmake I get
CMake Deprecation Warning at CMakeLists.txt:4 (cmake_minimum_required): Compatibility with CMake < 2.8.12 will be removed from a future version of CMake. Update the VERSION argument <min> value or use a ...<max> suffix to tell CMake that the project does not need compatibility with older versions. -- The C compiler identification is unknown -- The CXX compiler identification is unknown CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:10 (project): The CMAKE_C_COMPILER: cl is not a full path and was not found in the PATH. To use the NMake generator with Visual C++, cmake must be run from a shell that can use the compiler cl from the command line. This environment is unable to invoke the cl compiler. To fix this problem, run cmake from the Visual Studio Command Prompt (vcvarsall.bat). Tell CMake where to find the compiler by setting either the environment variable "CC" or the CMake cache entry CMAKE_C_COMPILER to the full path to the compiler, or to the compiler name if it is in the PATH. -- Detecting CXX compiler ABI info CMake Error: Generator: execution of make failed.
