Compiling from source - Need some clarification on instructions.

Post by jt1 » Thu Apr 04, 2019 7:37 pm

I have a need to compile the VPN Client from source code, and I'm following the directions listed here:

https://github.com/Fadreus/SoftEther/bl ... 17--cmake

Steps 1-4 were painless, they are completed exactly as directed. Step 5 is this:

Install the needed submodules to build the project, avoiding CMake telling you to do so with: git submodule update --init --recursive

I don't compile things from source, so maybe this is obvious to someone who does, but I don't know what this means. The other steps were self explanatory, but now I'm unable to figure this out.

This looks like a linux command, but I'm in Windows 10, and the instructions are for installing Microsoft software, so it must also be in Windows. I was able to do some Google-Fu and find a developer command line, but it does not accept this command. Lastly, I installed an add-on that gives a command line directly in Visual Studio (https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/it ... BuiltinCmd) but it does not like the command 'git'.

Could someone please give an explanation for what exactly is to be done in order to complete step 5 in those instructions?
