vs2010 Express support for PhysX 3.3

I’ve used vs2010 Express to compile previous versions of PhysX samples but it doesn’t work with PhysX 3.3 beta.

Here’s the error I’m hitting:
“…\src\windows\WindowsSamplePlatform.cpp(68): fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: ‘atlimage.h’: No such file or directory”

AFIAK, atlimage.h is only available in the Standard editions of vs2010.

Any chance PhysX will continue to support Express editions too?


I’ll look into it. It’s become very difficult to support so many different toolchains, with about a dozen platforms including consoles, mobile, etc.

Thanks for looking into it. Have you ever tried Premake? I’ve found it very well done and easy to use

The latest versions of Bullet use it, so if you’re interested you might want to take a look at the Bullet distribution to see what the scripts look like.


Thanks for the tip, I’ll have a look.


So, just checking, is it just plain impossible to build the 3.3.1 samples with VS 2010 Express? Does 2012 Express work or is any Express user just out of luck?
