Failing to install Gazebo on Windows

Hello,

I have been trying to install the latest version of Gazebo on Windows 10, following the installation guide found here: http://gazebosim.org/tutorials?tut=in....

I have managed to complete steps 1-7 without any problems, however, when coming to step 8, I successfully run the commands, but I can't seem to find any Installation of Ignition CMake. Moreover, when I try moving to the next steps, I am getting an error, which is shown below, together with the output of the step 8. I have been trying to find a solution to this but I couldn't, has anybody encountered this before and knows what should I do to get Gazebo running?

Thank you!

Step 8 output:

Step 9 error:

I have the same issue, I can complete step 8 without any errors. But there is no 'installation of Ignition CMake in gz-ws/ign-cmake/build/install/Release.' as described in the tutorial. There is no /install/Release folder created after this step.

And when trying to move to step 9 to Ignition Math it says the same that it can't find package configuration file provided by "ignition cmake0".

There is an ongoing effort of improving the methods of installing Gazebo on Windows. Please check https://github.com/osrf/gazebo/issues... and linked issues, hope it can help you or at least give you some alternatives.

It looks like ign-cmake installed without the expected directory prefix, ie, it went straight to /bin, /lib/cmake and such, not D:\gazebo\ign-cmake\build\install\Release:

To rebuild ign-cmake, first delete the entire build directory so changes show up. Editign-cmake/configure.bat and hardcode this path -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX="D:\gazebo\ign-cmake\build\install\Release" to force the install in the correct location. Then run mkdir build && cd build && ..\configure.bat, and you should see the full and proper install path. Run nmake and nmake install afterwards.

If ign-math can't find it after that (it should, but just in case) you can link to wherever it gets installed by editing ign-math\configure.bat and declare the full path here: -DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH="/path/to/install/Release/dir"
