Compiling and running tests on Windows

Running the test suite is a sure-fire way to ensure you did everything well with your compilation and installation process.

The more modules you add the more tests will be run when you do this step.

Note that the Prophesee Camera Plugins must be installed (or compiled yourself) for most of these tests to run.

  • Go to this page to download the files necessary to run the tests. Click the Download button on the top right of the page. The obtained archive weighs around 3 Gb.

  • Extract and put the contents of this archive into <OPENEB_SRC_DIR>/. For instance, the correct path of sequence gen31_timer.raw should be <OPENEB_SRC_DIR>/datasets/openeb/gen31_timer.raw.

  • To run the test suite you need to reconfigure your build environment using CMake and to recompile. Make sure that all your pro modules were properly configured.

    • Compilation using only CMake

    1. Regenerate the build using CMake (note that -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE must be absolute path, not a relative one):

    cd <OPENEB_SRC_DIR>/build
    1. Compile:

    cmake --build . --config Release --parallel 4
    • Compilation using CMake and MS Visual Studio

    1. Generate the Visual Studio files using CMake (adapt the command to your Visual Studio version):

    cmake -G "Visual Studio 16 2019" -A x64 -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE=<OPENEB_SRC_DIR>\cmake\toolchains\vcpkg.cmake -DVCPKG_DIRECTORY=<VCPKG_SRC_DIR> -DBUILD_TESTING=ON ..


    The value passed to the parameter -DCMAKE_TOOLCHAIN_FILE must be an absolute path, not a relative one.

    1. Open the solution file metavision.sln, select the Release configuration and build the ALL_BUILD project.

  • Running the test suite

    ctest -C Release
