When i am building blender do I have to specify each lib and include directory for each folder in BlenderSVN\lib\windows folder for visual studio? is there a way to give all the projects in the solution access to them in a few steps? thanks.
Usually, you get a project file by running CMake. CMake’s job is to search for all the libraries in your system and setup your project file with the correct settings. Which build system are you trying to use?
