Using ACLiC to compile a macaro

Hello

I am using ROOT 6.22/02 on Windows 10 (https://root.cern/download/root_v6.22.02.win32.vc16.exe) with Visual studio Community 2019 and trying to run script hsimple.C with ACLiC and I get errors below.
I tried to run my own script, which works fine in ROOT 5.34.38, received errors and tried the tutorial hsimple.C, the errors are similar.
The output is below. Could you explain to me what I need to do differently.

First in cmd window I have

C:\root_v6.22.02\tutorials> "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\Community\VC\Auxiliary\Build\vcvars32.bat"

then

C:\root_v6.22.02\tutorials>root -l hsimple.C+

Welcome to the ROOT tutorials


Type ".x demos.C" to get a toolbar from which to execute the demos

Type ".x demoshelp.C" to see the help window

==> Many tutorials use the file hsimple.root produced by hsimple.C
==> It is recommended to execute hsimple.C before any other script

Indeed, I remember that error. It shows up with recent versions of MSVC (Visual Studio 2019 v16.7.0 to be precise). @bellenot worked around it by defining __CUDACC__.

If you built your own ROOT you can add the following lines:

Or you grab a nightly binary which should have that fixed: https://root.cern/download/nightly/?C=N;O=D

Cheers, Axel.

Thank you Axel,

I tried the nightly build and I have the same errors.

I tried to build root also,
I did in termianal

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\Community\VC\Auxiliary\Build\vcvars32.bat"

D:\>cd root-6.22.02-build

cmake -Dall=OFF -Dmathmore=OFF -Dbuiltin_zlib=ON -Dgfal=OFF -Dbuiltin_freetype=ON -Dbuiltin_ftgl=ON -Droofit=ON -Dfftw3=ON -DFFTW_INCLUDE_DIR=D:\fftw -DFFTW_LIBRARY=D:\fftw\libfftw3-3.lib D:\root-6.22.02-source

The output is in cmake-output-1.txt.
Then

cmake --build .  --config Release  > cmake-build-1.txt

The output is in cmake-build-1.txt

And no success

Any help on how to compile root on Windows 10?
