Compiling dcmtk 3.6.0 in 64 bit

#1 Post by hadi » Sun, 2016-02-28, 16:34

Hi
we are using dcmtk 32 bit for several years.
But now we need to compile 3.6.0 (NOT 3.6.1) in 64 bit in visual studio 2010.
We used cmake to create solution and then compiled it, but got link error.
We found that first we need to compile : libtiff, libpng, zlib, libxml, liniconv
we could use cmake to create solution and then compiled zlib and libpng.
But other does not have cmakelists.txt!

question : Is it possible to compile dcmtk 3.6.0 (and libtiff, libpng, zlib, libxml, liniconv) in 64 bit?
If YES please help us.
If any body has 64 bit compiled files? or know what we can do.

Best Regards

According to the INSTALL file, DCMTK 3.6.0 has been tested with VisualStudio 2010 (64-bit) on Windows 7 (64-bit). However, as far as I remember, the CMAKE_GENERATOR check in the main CMakeLists.txt file in wrong (incomplete) since it does not consider the "Win64" suffix. As a consequence, the DCMTK-specific compiler/linker settings are not used.

The short answer is: yes, it is possible. The long version is what I tried to describe above.

With regard to the various support libraries (64-bit version) for Windows: I don't have them available (my main platform is Linux with gcc), so you have to compile them on your own unless somebody else can provide you with these libraries.
