fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'audacity/Types

I am a non programmer. New bee to audacity too.
Trying to compile Audacity but Getting below error.

fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: ‘audacity/Types.h’: No such file or directory

But in the SVN folder I can clearly see these file in the path …includeaudacity

Using below version
VC 2008 for compiling.
Latest version of audacity available on SVN

Thanx in advance.

Audacity no longer supports compiling with Visual Studio 2008. Please see the top of http://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Developing_On_Windows. If you use a version of Visual Studio 2013 and follow win/compile.txt, HEAD (latest SVN) will definitely compile right now.


Thanx Gale Andrews for the reply.

As suggested I started using Visual Studio 2013.
After following all the steps mentioned in the compile.txt, when I started compiling audacity, I am getting below errors.

  1. error C2059: syntax error : ‘)’
  2. error C2146: syntax error : missing ‘;’ before identifier ‘format’
  3. error C4430: missing type specifier - int assumed.
  4. error C2061: syntax error : identifier ‘sampleFormat’

All these errors for different files like SampleFormat.h, Track.h, Types.h, Sequence.h etc.

Please suggest.

I suggest you follow the steps in compile.txt to the letter. Delete the Audacity tree you had and make a fresh checkout. Then it will work. Use audacity.sln not the audacity-vs2008_OBSOLETE.sln.

Examine why you need to compile Audacity if you are not a programmer. Have you actually changed the Audacity code?
