Hi Paul.
>>> GenWrapper - no.  I've just done a rebuild on OSG 2.6.0 to check,
and didn't get a genwrapper error message.
>> In 2.6.1, if I right click on the 'wrappers' target and select
'build', then
>>genwrapper is found and runs normally -- no error.

>> Did you build it from a genwrapper svn tree? Where did you put the
executable after you built it?

'wrappers' target didn't exist.

The only difference at my side was that I downloaded 2.6.0 as a zip file
from the OSG downloads page, but I got 2.6.1 from the svn url you
With both versions, I used the same batch of 3rd party libs, and I used
VS's "batch build" to build everything.

>> In general, you shouldn't need to build the 'wrappers' target, they
should already be built and checked in. However, I see they are out of
date on 2.6.1 
That explains it, thanks Paul.  I guess I wouldn't normally need
genwrappers to compile OSG from source.
