Re: [PATCH] Fixes for Visual Studio / vcpkg build


Hey Jon,

I was playing around with vcpkg a couple of weeks ago and it's works
surprisingly well.  There is finally a sane way to build dependencies
and compile and link against them on windows.  The dependencies I could
not find in vcpkg are ngspice and wxPhoenix/wxWidgets which means that
we could not build and debug the simulator code and the wx python
extension support.  Did someone recently add ngspice and wxPhoneix to
vcpkg?  The Python code is also somewhat different as I assume that you
would use the default python install to build the Python extensions.
