Hi, Joel,
Thanks for your comment. First of all I apologize for the late reply. Work
and then holidays got in the way.
The immediate thing I noticed from your comment was the problem with the
path name. In fact my path included the string "Joao" with a tilde in the *a
*. I already changed that.
The version of Visual C++ I have installed is the 2008 one. At least that's
what appears in the control panel.
However the cl executable is at:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\bin
I setup the CCompiler with the visual studio
$CCompiler = {"Compiler" -> GenericCCompiler,
"CompilerInstallation" ->
"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\\VC\\bin",
"CompilerName" -> "cl.exe"};
Which it recognizes when I do $CCompiler it returns
{"Compiler" -> GenericCCompiler,
"CompilerInstallation" ->
"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\\VC\\bin",
"CompilerName" -> "cl.exe"}
It seems fine but when I do the hello example it fails
In fact CCompilers[] returns nothing
There is still something I am missing here.
tks
Joao
