Problems compiling in Windows

#1 Post by gislita » Wed Mar 21, 2007 4:19 pm

Hello,

I am trying to compile ROMS using Compaq Visual Fortran 6.1 in a Windows XP computer, and I am unable to make it work. I have tried to modify the jobcomp file, but I am getting too many errors when trying to compile and build the executable. I wonder if somebody can please help me in this matter. I know most people are not using Windows as their operating system, but I thought this should work anyway in a Windows computer. Therefore, I was wondering if somebody knows how my jobcomp has to be defined for the compilation process to work.

Again, any help would be highly appreciated. Thank you very much

Juan

i had tried a long time ago to compile roms in that utility, but had some troubles. I think I eventually got it to work, but needed to set the correct preprocessor step, library locations, etc.

I suggest on a Windows machine that you use the Cygwin environment. I have found it much easier to just compile at the command prompt using make. There has been a lot of effort to get the makefiles and the compilers folder to function properly.
