  • Enter your Tools->Options->Projects->Vc Directories Tab and add the directory where you have installed and built boost as an include directory.

  • 'Check out' the FakedReality source tree, or for an update if you already have it. Instructions on checking out the source code is on our main project website located at:

  • Load Projects\Win32\Vc7\Vc7.sln into Visual Studio .NET

  • Build the projects, one at a time. The solution build feature does not work, due to a bug in the Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2002 build environment. The recommended build sequence is: Core, Application, Iris, IrisD3d9, IrisMax, Editor. You can build debug/release versions as you wish. Alternatively, use the build scripts provided in the scripts subdirectory of the main FakedReality source tree. This also generates the reference documentation.

  • Unpack the files to a directory of your choice.

  • Building boost 1.30.0 is optional, there is currently no need to do so but future versions of FR may require it. To build boost, follow the instructions included with the program itself. Logo
