When trying to verify my installation, I attempted to compile the sample “Hello World” program from the manual. After a bit of tweaking, I was able to get all my settings correct and my blank window will now show up and run properly. All except one part: the title. I am getting weird corruption where the title should be.
This is the title:
I hope someone can shed some light on this. I have verified that the text in set_window_title in my code is “My Panda3D Window”. If I change that (I thought initially that it may be an error parsing the space in there) to a single word like “None” it simply doesn’t show a title at all. I can post my code if anyone wants to see it, but it’s only the sample application from the manual.
I’m on Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (I have Unicode fonts and East Asian support enabled as I work in Japanese as well, but I don’t think this is the issue) and I’m compiling with Visual Studio 2010 Express.
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I did indeed build via RELEASE (in fact, I got rid of the DEBUG configuration entirely) and I verified that the NDEBUG directive is not set. Those seem to be the top suggestions in the threads I found, so I checked them first.
Does nobody have any information on this? If nothing pops up by tomorrow evening, I will continue my project, I am just afraid that this may only be a visible symptom of a much deeper problem. Is there a chance that it’s just because I’m on VS2010? Or on Windows 7? I have seen other posts on the forums that have had success compiling on each of these. Is it perhaps the combination of Windows 7 and VS2010? Any help would be appreciated.
