Error when running HelloWorld in visual studio 2010

I have place another post, talking about compilation. But I think that one of the question, it is more specific to this section of the forum (C++)

I was able to compile using makepanda for visual studio 2010.

When I ran hello world from tutorial … ng_Panda3D

(in release mode)
I get the following messages and no Panda3D Screen. What am I doing wrong?
:display(warning): Unable to load: The specified procedure could not be found
Known pipe types:
(all display modules loaded.)
No graphics pipe is available!
Your Config.prc file must name at least one valid panda display
library via load-display or aux-display.

By the way, the project was created via visual studio as an empty project.

This is more of an installation problem than a coding problem. As I answered in the other thread, I think the problem is that your PATH variable is incorrect.


Just curious:

did you insure your 3rd party libs are vs2010 generated? if not get ready for troubles…

Additionally: figure out what Microsoft SDKs you expect to use (7.1 and latest Directx?). And get ready to make appropriate changes at least in and

Hi. I think the Path is fine, but I will double check.

However, about the libraries… you are right… I have to get them compiled for visual studio… so it may take a bit more…
Someone told me that I may be missing the .prc file … I’m going to get the libraries compiled first for visual studio 2010 (3rd party libraries)
