OK, I have gotten working windows machines, and installed Windows 7.
This is the first step to improving ATLAS windows support. I have opened up this thread so I can ask dumb windows questions to people familiar with this horrible OS until I can get at least the simplist ATLAS install working.
My first action with my shiny new Win7 was to spend 2.5 hours attempting to delete a directory, w/o success. I finally renamed the directory and left it on the disk.
I have another problem that I wonder if others have seen. When I attempt to build ATLAS, it dies with "xatlas_install : permission denied".
I go into that directory, and run it by hand, and get the same message.
However, if I rename the xatlas\_install to xtst, then it runs! What new bizarro rule am I breaking by using the name xatlas\_install?
I notice that if compile hello world to the name xatlas\_install, it also fails to run with a permission denied error.
sorry but I am still on XP, so I have no first hand experience.
I presume you hit the joy for UAC
that it was already a pain for all cygwin people with Vista and
looks almost the same on W7.
