HOOPS Publish 2023

Welcome to our new documentation

We are pleased to announce the release of our new documentation!

It comes with a new look-and-feel and a better navigation interface. The search feature is faster now. And in the next releases, we will be adding more fine-grained controls such as whole-word match and fuzzy search. More to come!

Platform Changes

Migration to Visual Studio 2019

On Windows, HOOPS Publish migrated its compiler to Visual Studio 2019 (previously 2015). Following Microsoft’s Documentation on binary compatibility, this change implies an update to the required MSVC redistributables.

HOOPS Publish being an explicitly shared library, the impact occurs at runtime. Any application running HOOPS Publish must have at least Visual Studio 2019 redistributable.

Visual Studio solution and project files for sample code have been upgraded to Visual Studio 2019 as well. Thus, compiling our samples requires Visual Studio 2019.


Starting in Windows 10 version 2004 (build 19041), the printf family of functions prints exactly representable floating point numbers according to the IEEE 754 rules for rounding. This change affects programs built using Visual Studio 2019 version 16.2 and later. To preserve the previous change, our code as well as the samples are linked against legacy_stdio_float_rounding.obj. See MSVC Link options for more.
