Hi Phyo,

The first link you sent (the one showing all the errors) seems to 
indicate that you're trying to run testing, but the VTK-related 
executables required to do that have not been compiled. Did you build 
VTK before trying to run it's tests? If you downloaded the Windows 
installer, you will only be able to use VTK from Tcl. If you downloaded 
VTK source code, you must compile it before you can do anything with it.

If you built VTK from the source code, did you compile it in Release or 
Debug mode? If you compiled it in Release mode, then the executables you 
built would be in your C:/vtkbin/bin/Release directory rather than in 
C:/vtkbin/bin/Debug. If you compiled it in Release mode, then you should 
be running the tests in that mode as well.
