7.12.0 : issues

    I downloaded the 7.12.0 sources and did a build with Visual Studio 2008 (I had to build rtlib first before building other projects).

    Then I copied the brlcadInstall directory to another computer. Trying to run anything resulted in an error stating that the computer was not properly configured.

    On my machine, I had no trouble running mged. Nice!

    But on trying rtweight on a geometry I got the error: "rtweight.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close". The exception occurred in osfinfo.c at __lock_fhandle.

    I'm using a density file with the following format:

    materialnumber    density    description

    Any thoughts on this? Do I need to wait for the 7.12 setup?

      Huh, that's odd -- that said, the NSIS installer would be what you should be using to do the install, not copying the directory around.  The NSIS installer for BRL-CAD should have been automatically built when you ran the build.  There's a test build NSIS installer for 7.12.0 uploaded to our anonymous ftp server ( ftp.brlcad.org/incoming ) , you can give that a try too.

      That said, it sounds like it may be a bug regardless..  Presumably the density file you're trying is known to work just fine on *nix?

        BTW, Thank you for your quick answer, Sean!

        The density file works fine on Unix.

      Hi, I can't find the installer after the build.

      I tried the test build NSIS istaller. On starting most of the executables starting with 'rt', I get the message:

      "The system cannot execute the specified program."

        Really?  Well that's certainly NFG..  Hrm.

        The installer probably isn't there because you don't have the nsis tools installed.  Forgot that they are implicitly required.
