Thanks for your kind information.

I want to compile VTK.  I have downloaded vtk42-latestversion and installed 
it.  But my problem is I cannot find commom and graphics folder under vtk when 
I tried to add them into tool > options.  I have tried several ways that have 
been posted, but none of them works.  I don't know why.  Do I have to buy the 
book "The Visualisation ToolKit Users' Guide"?  Could you please tell me in 
detail, I mean the procedure, how to config before I can compile the code 

Appreciate your advise!

Thanks & Regards
