Windows 7 installing problem

Post by Helen » 30 Sep 2016, 13:05

I am trying to install Dalton 2016. Doing python setup build_gfortran (used Python 2.7) and fail. There is the following message with an error:

CMake Error at CMakeLists.txt:18 (project):
No CMAKE_Fortran_COMPILER could be found.

See also "C:/Python27/build_gfortran/CMakeFiles/CMakeError.log".

I attached my CMakeError.log and CMakeOutput.log files.

Please, if anyone knows how to solve this problem and install Dalton, please, let me know.
Thank you!

To the best of my knowledge there is no Dalton build for Windows. If you run Cygwin (which you don't appear to be using?) you may be in with a chance. I rather thought we made this clear in the website/documentation? You need a Linux system, which you may be able to run in a virtual machine under Windows using e.g. VMWare or KVM, although I would not be enthused about the likely performance, or a more traditional UNIX system, or Mac OSX. I am almost certain there is no native build for Windows (any version).

Note that one can buy a Raspberry Pi for $35 (or equivalent) and build Dalton for it and it will run quite happily, although the performance will only be about 20-25% of the speed of an Intel or AMD x86 box. And with the Pi you get Mathematica, free! That's $300 worth of free software up front!

Best regards
Pete
