I have Doxygen and I have WinGraphviz.  I have folowed every instruction to configure Doxygen to use the WinGraphviz application to create charts and graphs...Simply put...it does not work.  Anyone have any idea how to configure?  I have delved into both project sites, so a link is not what I need.  I need proven steps.

Thanks,
BFT&!

Where did you find instructions for using WinGraphviz?  I can't find anyone talking about using WinGraphviz with Doxygen.  Why not just download graphviz since Doxygen is designed to use the dot tool directly?

If you get graphviz (which is what WinGraphviz is based on), you just use the Doxygen UI and select the Expert... button and go to the DOT tab.  Select "HAVE_DOT" and put the path in the DOT_PATH entry field if it's not on your path by default.  You can also just set those two values manually in the Doxygen configuration file for your project.

Looks like you found it already, but you can download graphviz at http://www.graphviz.org/Download..php

I did that...HAVE_DOT=YES
DOT_PATH= what exactly do I put in this path?  Relative or Fixed...Point to a particular file or folder or folder/file...
THe error I keep recieving is ...Problem converting dot to png, so no diagraphs are created.

>>what exactly do I put in this path?
I have the path on my system environment variable, but you should enter an absolute path to the bin folder containing the dot.exe.
