There is a error message, if I'm installing the new version(MeshLab_64b 1.3.2) on my Windows 7 Enterprise x64. "Your system does not appear to have Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP! Redistributable Package (x64) installed. MeshLab Installation process will be aborted. Please, install it and restart the MeshLab installer." Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x64) is installed, I have it try too with MS Visual C++ 2010 SP1, but the installation process will be aborted.
The intentions are good, but the result is a bloated mess of unfinished filters. I am sad to say that I had a hard time finding a filter that did not cause the program to crash. My impression is that the authors and audience are academics interested in the algorithms, and knowing what to give them, and especially not to give them. Creating robust software for ordinary users has clearly not been a priority.
