building 64bit Leap motion control Python wrapper in VS 2015

    Question

  • hi, 

    I'm trying to run a Leap Motion Controller inside of Houdini a 3D software, but the leap module does not load in Houdini, i was told by a developer that:
    building 64bit Leap motion control Python wrapper in VS 2015

    ''Houdini's Python is built with Visual Studio 2015 and so it probably can't import/run the LeapPython.pyd module.

    Your only option is to use a LeapPython.pyd module that is built with Visual Studio 2015. Hopefully Leap Motion has a way to build the module from source.''

    I require a 64bit version of the module as Houdini prints out the following in its console:

    'Python 2.7.5 (default, Oct 24 2013, 17:49:49) MSC v.1700 64 bit (AMD64) on win32'

    I was told by Leap developers that I should follow the following example in order to build a 64bit version of the module on windows:

    I ran into a problem when i reached step 5:

    'Go to to the C/C++ -> General property page. Add the path containing Python.h, typically C:\Python33\include. (screenshot)'

    the c/c++ directory doesn't exist???:see attached image

  • Hi friend,

    Please make sure you've installed Microsoft Visual C++ build tools components.

    The c/c++ will just show up under c++ project's properties. 

    I could only find it in my C++ projects but not in others. 

     

    Best regards,

    Fletcher.
