o Visual Studio:
- Open existing or create a new project for your application
- Copy libusb.h, from the include\libusb-1.0\ directory, into your project and
make sure that the location where the file reside appears in the 'Additional
Include Directories' section (Configuration Properties -> C/C++ -> General).
- Copy the relevant .lib file from MS32\ or MS64\ and add 'libusb-1.0.lib' to
your 'Additional Dependencies' (Configuration Properties -> Linker -> Input)
Also make sure that the directory where libusb-1.0.lib resides is added to
'Additional Library Directories' (Configuration Properties -> Linker
-> General)
- If you use the static version of the libusb library, make sure that
'Runtime Library' is set to 'Multi-threaded DLL (/MD)' (Configuration
Properties -> C/C++ -> Code Generation).
NB: If your application requires /MT (Multi-threaded/libCMT), you need to
recompile a static libusb 1.0 library from source.
- Compile and run your application. If you use the DLL version of libusb-1.0,
remember that you need to have a copy of the DLL either in the runtime
directory or in system32
o MinGW/cygwin
- Copy libusb.h, from include/libusb-1.0/ to your default include directory,
and copy the MinGW32/ or MinGW64/ .a files to your default library directory.
Or, if you don't want to use the default locations, make sure that you feed
the relevant -I and -L options to the compiler.
- Add the '-lusb-1.0' linker option when compiling.
