Problem building.
I have just installed esenthel newest version on windows 8.
Tried a simple test by adding a new application "Test" and a new code "Main".

I also tried doing it the way tutorials explain but I think they might be outdated?

Differences from the tutorial:
Code:
Window window; // gui window
Text   text  ; // gui text
Button button; // gui button
Declarations of the objects

Code:
Gui   +=window.create(....
Gui is the GUI object; GUI is the class. C++ is case-sensitive.

Code:
window+=text  .create(...
window+=button.create(...
Again, notice the use of 'text' and 'button' instead of 'Text' and 'Button'.

The blue color gives you a hint that it's a keyword rather than a variable, too.

I tried it like you said using only small letters for window, text and button but it doesn't fix the problem.

RE: Problem building.
Did you add the declarations as well?

RE: Problem building.
That seems to have made progress but still not working.
Also, am I correct then that the tutorials are outdated because it doesn't say I need to make those declarations in them?

I don't see where I am missing any ";" before line 17 and I'm also wondering what the first line in the output is about a warning: "Platform 'Emscripten'..."?

GUI is wrong. It is used to declare a new GUI:
Code:
GUI ANewGUI;
Gui is what you want. Somewhere in the engine is
Code:
GUI Gui;

And you probably have to make the window, text, and button objects global.

I would really recommend brushing up on your C++.

RE: Problem building.
Yeah, I am a bit rusty, been a while since I used C++.
But I think it's a bit different here still since I don't really know how the engine works.. If their tutorial tells me to do something a certain way.. I could get the app running by changing that line as you suggested but it's just a white screen, didn't get any window or any ok button to press.. Tried making those 6 lines global but then I got massive amount of errors again.. If I could just get this basic app running then I believe I should have a much better understanding of how this engine works in it's "basic core".

RE: Problem building.
Please put the variables "Window window" outside of the function, and place them in global space.

Code:
Window window;
bool Init()
{
  Gui+=window.create..
There are GUI tutorials included in the engine, I recommend checking them out.
