Ladies and gentelmen,

I have downloaded your tiff-3.7.4.zip packege and wanted to create

the TIFF-Libraries with:

C:\LIBTIFF\LIBTIFF> nmake /f makefile.vc

The following error has appeared at the compile time.

The file jpeglib.h is really not present in this packege.

What can I do to create this libraries?


Review the nmake.opt file. There should be a section that looks like:

# Uncomment and edit following lines to enable JPEG support.
#JPEGDIR = d:/projects/jpeg-6b
#JPEG_LIB = $(JPEGDIR)/Release/jpeg.lib

Are any of these missing the "#" at the beginning? If so, either add it back to disable jpeg support or you will need to download and pre-built the libjpeg package.

As far as I know, libtiff is distributed with jpeg support disabled by default. If this is not the case, we may need to fixup the default windows build stuff.
