Hello everyone,

My name is Kirby and I am a student at Texas A&M University. Currently I am
trying to utilize ZeroMQ for serial communication between a Graphical User
Interface that I have created in C++ in Microsoft Visual Studios 2008 and a
Raspberry Pi that is coded in Python. I am having trouble making sure that
I am downloading the correct installer and the correct files that would
make this happen. I have followed the instructions on
http://zeromq.org/area:download to install it on a Windows machine.
However, when I download the installer, it is not in a .zip file but as an
installation. Thus when running the installation I have the ZeroMQ
shortcuts added to VS 2008 Express Edition because that is what I am using
to compile my code. Here are the things that I have downloaded:


When I bring up the czmq project in VS 2008 and try and build it. I
continue to get this error:
fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'zmq.h': No such file or

Lastly, I am using a using a Windows Desktop with these specs Windows 8.1
with a 64-bit Operating System and a x64-based processor, if any of that
information matters for the installation. My plan is to just create the
project on this computer and then make an .exe of my code and then have it
run on a Windows XP machine to communicate with the Pi.

Thank you in advance and have a nice day!
