I am attempting to build TSK so I can use it on Expert Witness Files, specifically E01’s. However, I can’t get TSK to build using Visual Studio. I installed Visual Studio 2015. Then downloaded the .tar.gz and decompressed it. Upon opening the .sln in win32 an error message shows up saying one or more projects could not be loaded. If I try to load a single project it comes up with the following error message:
C:\Users\REDACTED\Downloads\sleuthkit-4.10.1\win32\img_stat\img_stat.vcxproj : error : Unable to read the project file "img_stat.vcxproj". C:\Users\REDACTED\Downloads\sleuthkit-4.10.1\win32\img_stat\img_stat.vcxproj(142,3): The imported project "C:\Users\REDACTED\Downloads\sleuthkit-4.10.1\win32\NugetPackages.props" was not found. Confirm that the path in the <Import> declaration is correct, and that the file exists on disk.
I downloaded the source code from https://www.sleuthkit.org/sleuthkit/download.php. It appears that this version does not have the NugetPackages.props, but it is available on the github page. Should that be included in the download link?
