-Visual Studio 2010 which comes with NMake
-levmar 2.6 (http://users.ics.forth.gr/~lourakis/levmar/)
For a recent research project we needed to solve an optimization problem. We considered using levmar by Lourakis. Not having touched C or build code using Make for a while it took a little while to get everything setup and building. In this blog the steps needed will be described. Should you run into trouble please consider the troubleshooting section at the end of this post. If you are interested in using levmar in C# check out this blog post.
