Hi there! I am a student taking an intro to app development course and for the final portion of our program we were allowed to select a personal project related to AR app development to pursue and experiment with. This led me to to Qualcomm's Vuforia SDK and while I am unfamiliar with some of the technology involved (C++, Eclipse environment) I am not one to back away from learning new things.
I am currently stuck while trying to set up the SDK to start exploring the sample programs. I've installed everything so far and believe I've followed the instructions carefully, but I'm a bit lost at Step 3 - Compile the Shared Object.
I don't understand the instructions regarding the execution of the ndk-build command. I tried navigating to the directory through Window's command prompt and executing it from there, but no luck. While searching for answers, I found that Cygwin was recommended for building the Shared Object, but I can't seem to make heads or tails of Cygwin and the little progress I made didn't produce the Shared Object.
If anyone can help me with this so I have more than just conceptual learning to present, I would greatly appreciate it! Thanks!
