Using Sensable OpenHaptics on Windows

I have been in trouble with using OpenHaptics in WinXP a couple of times, specially when I change compilers. The OpenHaptics core is usually OK but the utilities need to be recompiled, otherwise you will get into trouble with Windows Side by Side and you can not even Debug you program. What I suggest is to open the project file called “Utilities” at “./SensAble/3DTouch/utilities/src/” in the compiler you wanna use, then build it for Debug, Release and ReleaseAcademicEdition. This way you will be sure that OpenHaptics Utilities are compatible with your specific compiler.

I will add Cmake files for a sample project using OpenHaptics, later in another post.
