I’m trying to build an old version of Blender to look at Blender Internal Renderer’s vertex-color baking code in action. I don’t care which version of Blender I can build, as long as it’s pre-2.80 and can bake to vertex colors. The latest daily build of 2.79 would work as well as any of the releases. But right now I’m trying to build 2.79b. I’ve succeeded in finding the commit tagged as 2.79b : https://developer.blender.org/rBf4dc9f9d68bddaa206b692e1d077d1a1f2bb1528
git checkout f4dc9f9d68bd seems to work OK. I’ve installed MSVS 2013 Update 5. When I run
./make.bat lite from git bash, I get:
$ ./make.bat lite loading initial cache file D:\git-blender\blender\\build_files\cmake\config\blender_lite.cmake loading initial cache file D:\git-blender\blender\\build_files\cmake\config\blender_lite.cmake CMake Warning at CMakeLists.txt:767 (message): Addons path 'D:/git-blender/blender/release/scripts/addons' is missing, This is a 'git submodule', which are known not to work with bridges to other version control systems: * CONTINUING WITHOUT ADDONS * -- 64 bit compiler detected. -- Visual Studio 2013 detected.

MSBUILD : error MSB1009: Project file does not exist. Switch: D:\git-blender\blender\..\build_windows_Lite_x64_vc12_Release\Blender.sln "Build Failed"
So I think this is the problem:
Windows requires pre-compiled libs at: 'D:/git-blender/blender/../lib/win64_vc12'
Now I have a folder called
win64_vc14 How do I get the older library dependencies? I’m not familiar with SVN.
@LazyDodo can you help with this?
Thanks in advance to anyone that can help
