Use HDF5 by NI LabWindows/CVI


#1

Is there anyone try to use HDF5 in NI LabWindows/CVI?
I have failed to import hdf5.h and hdf5.dll and generate corresponding hdf5.lib into my CVI project.

OS: Winodws 8.1
Visual Studio 2015 Community. VC++ support is installed.
Build-VS2015-32.bat in CMake-hdf5-1.10.2 can be executed successfully.
Compiler: LabWindows/CVI 9.0 32-bit C compiler
Download pre-built binary
https://support.hdfgroup.org/ftp/HDF5/current18/bin/windows/hdf5-1.8.20-Std-win7_32-vs14.zip
Install to C:\Program Files (x86)\HDF_Group\HDF5\1.8.20
Create a new project in CVI
Try to include header and DLL file into CVI project.
(1) Include “hdf5.h” from C:\Program Files (x86)\HDF_Group\HDF5\1.8.20\include
(2) Double click hdf5.h file in CVI project tree to open it
(3) Menu Options -> Generate DLL Import Library to search hdf5.dll from
Error message -> The include file “sys\types.h” was not found
Conversion process fails, any idea?
