Compiling Libtorch tutorial example on Windows

Hey,

I try to compile the dummy example from the tutorial on Windows (on Linux / Mac everything works fine).
For this I downloaded the Debug and Release versions for windows as they are provided and while cmake works fine, building the thing then does not work.

My cMake command:

 cmake -G "Visual Studio 15 2017 Win64" -DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=C:/[path]/libtorch-win-shared-with-deps-1.2.0/libtorch -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug ..

The output of cmake is:

$ cmake -G "Visual Studio 15 2017 Win64" -DCMAKE_PREFIX_PATH=C:/Users/Lucas/Documents/Repositories/InferenceSMLM/lib_external/libtorch-win-shared-with-deps-1.2.0/libtorch -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug ..

I then go to the build folder and open the .sln file in Visual studio 2017 and try to build it. VS then outputs:

1>------ Build started: Project: ZERO_CHECK, Configuration: Debug x64 ------
2>------ Build started: Project: dcgan, Configuration: Debug x64 ------
2>LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file 'torch-NOTFOUND.obj'

Can someone provide me with a hint? :slight_smile:
