SystemC using Visual Studio 2013


Recommended Posts



I'm currently trying to port a SystemC simulation running under Linux to Windows with Visual Studio 2013.


I've been searching and following several guides like this one : 



The only missing option I couldn't set is "detect 64-bit portability issues".


Although, when I'm trying to compile a simple SystemC project, the following error occurs :


Error 1 error LNK1561: entry point must be defined
After looking for it on google, I found this link, saying that the SystemC.lib file might not have been set in VS:

Having successfully used SystemC 2.3.1 with VS 2013 on a 64-bit Window 7 OS, I can assure you that it is not hard.


Basic steps are:

1. Download the latest version of SystemC from Accellera.org

2. Open the archive and find the MSC80 directory where some old project solutions await you.

3. Open the solution, ignore the complaints, and build the library.

4. Back in your project simply adjust the settings for C++ include files to use the src directory from you build. Also, adjust the linker to point to the recently built library files under the MSC80/Debug directory.
