I tried to install FreeImage (the one given on the tutoriel for windows: on windows, but when I try to build the project I have 3 fail (with FreeImage.2008.vcxproj, LibTIFF4.2008.vcxproj and LibRawLite.2008.vcxproj).

I didn't touch the code, so I don't know why there are some fail. Is it because I use visual studio 2017 and not 2013? Or do I miss something?

I've never tried to run Gazebo on Windows (it may be possible), but that tutorial starts out with the statement *"This documentation describes how to set up a workspace for trying to compile Gazebo on Windows. It does not actually work yet."* Whether or not that is still accurate, I don't know. Just pointing out for your consideration :)

I saw it after asking this question. The tutoriel also said that it was test on Windows 7 and 8.1 but not for 10 (they didn't wrote for windows 10). But I will do my best to compile Gazebo on windows 10.

Cool, be sure to update your question if you figure it out! Hopefully someone who's tried it before will be able to help.
