i’m trying to build carla from source on windows. i am using the master branch. i have Visual studio 2017 installed and also UE4.24.3 installed. my pc specs are pretty good, so no problems there. here are the steps i did:
- downloaded the master branch and extracted it
- opened \unreal\carlaUE4
- right clicked on carlaUE4.uproject and clicked on generate visual studio files.
- double clicked on the .sln file which was created. it launches visual studio 2017 and loads the project to it.
- clicked the play button in visual studio to build the project.
here are the errors i get:
Severity Code Description Project File Line Suppression State
Error Unable to instantiate module ‘Carla’: System.IO.DirectoryNotFoundException: Could not find a part of the path ‘\carla-master\Unreal\CarlaUE4\Plugins\Carla\CarlaDependencies\lib’. CarlaUE4 C:\Users\Desktop\carla-master\Unreal\CarlaUE4\Intermediate\ProjectFiles\UnrealBuildTool
so it looks like carla dependencies are missing.
i also tried to do “make launch” and “make LibCarla” from the command line, but it always says that my cl.exe file is broken, although i know for a fact that it is working because i can compile normal cpp projects in visual studio 2017
also, i think i need to mention that i am trying to build this from source because i need to add more pedestrian models into the simulator. the built simulator releases work great.
