Hi all,

I'm creating a small package in Windows using the Msvc Build Environment - Fuerte. I have run the sdk demo and it executes very well. But when I have wrote my own application and I try to compile it, the linker throws me the error: unresolved external symbol "bool ros::console::g_initialized"

I have checked the include folder and the lib folder and the rosconsole.lib but I can't produce the executable. I have looking for the g_initiaized variable but I only found the extern definition. I can't found the real declaration.

Any help will be useful,

Alxperez

I answer my own question. You need to include the ROS_BUILD_SHARED_LIBS definition in order to uses the dlls instead of the static libraries.

I have generated the msvc project using a catkinized cmake inside the console2. This project doesn't have some configurations like folder include (rosdeps), or some additional preprocessor definitions like BOOST_LIB_TOOLSET="vc" in order to correctly find the boost libraries and the ROS_BUILD_SHARED_LIBS definition that uses the dlls.

Once this definitions is added, and the rosdep folder is included, the program compiles and links very well.

Hi Aperez,

I've got the same trouble compiling my code, I added both ros and rosdep includes and rosconsole.lib, but it still crashing while linking. I'm using vs12. I tried with the preprocessor definitions but I got the same. How did you finally manage the error?

Thanks in advance
