I get a fatal error when I try to build the "visualisation" solution of the 6.5 under Visual 2005. The compiler do not find the "FTfont.h" file... Impossible to find this file in the Occ distribution ! Anyone has met this issue ? Thanks for your answers

Yes, similar problem with VC2010. I'm having to build all the dependent libraries first, including freetype and FTGL. This is where your current problem is coming from.

Yes finally, I have downloaded the FTGL package on Sourceforge (
and I have added the "src" directory to the list of "include" directory in visual. Compilation of "visualization" solution is now ok, but I do not know if it will work without compile FTGL...
Thank you

Your version of FTGL may be too recent; OCC officially supports 2.1.2.
Alternatively, there's a patch that works for more recent versions in the following thread:
