Installing Gazebo on Windows. Missing Protobuf

I am trying to install gazebo on Windows and I follow this tutorial : http://gazebosim.org/tutorials?tut=in...

I had no problem while getting the clones from math-ign, sdformat and gazebo. But when I want to build gazebo using VS 12.0 I get an error : Protobuf libraries cannot be found. in (Findprotobuf.cmake)

So I looked inside the configuration file and it seems that the path is correct. It has the correct version (2.6.0).

Does anyone have a solution to make the compiler see protobuf ?

Many thanks in advance !

It's an inconsistency in the Protobuf archive provided by OSRF.

This path from instructions

protobuf-2.6.0-win64-vc12\vsprojects\Release

should actually be

protobuf-2.6.0-win64-vc12\vsprojects\x64\Release

So just grab the Release and Debug folder and put them under the newly created x64 subdirectory.

@ngartner, the windows installation link you gave has a not-so-useful "It does not actually work yet.".

Did you want to give it a shot despite that statement? I'm just curious.
