I successfully built the trunk 2.8 version with the qPcl plugin (the only activated plugin) on windows 7 x64, vs2013.
I used the "PCL 1.7.2 All-in-one Installer MSVC2013 x64" from http://unanancyowen.com/?p=712
and all the dependencies inside (eigen, boost, flann, vtk)
Everything works fine, but when I try to use the MLS smoothing command, it takes 5 minutes for the same command that takes 10 seconds to execute using the official build.
I also tried PCL 1.8 All-in-one with the same result.
Any idea is appreciated.
