What is the current way to setup openfl for the windows target.
Should we still run
openfl setup windows
and install VC 2010?
Should I install Visual Studio 2017 Community? I am asking, because it’s a 6GB download, and then maybe it does not work.
There should always be a tutorial for new haxe users. And even if I am an old haxe user, I don’t know exactly the way to set it all up. Last time I had problems with Visual Studio 2015, it was’nt recognized by openfl. So I switched back to 2010.
Sorry for the confusion!
I would recommend installing Visual Studio Community, whichever version you prefer. I hear that 2013 has long build times, but 2010, 2015 and 2017 should all work. No other “setup” is required for Windows C++ builds, but make sure you check the box for Win32 support (desktop C++) when you install Visual Studio
There was an issue with newer (2017, possibly 2015) versions of VS not being recognized in HXCPP, but that should be resolved in the current version of the library
