Building INSTALL failed

Postby saeico » Fri Jun 10, 2011 7:44 am


I followed the instructions given in ... html#build to build clapack. I downloaded CMake 2.8.4 and had it run as described with Visual Studio 2010 generator. I didn't know if I had to check the USE_BLAS_WRAP option so I decided not to.

Afterwards I opened the Visual Studio Solution and was able to build ALL_BUILD. But if I try to build INSTALL I get an error message

Code: Select all
error MSB3073: Der Befehl ""C:\Program Files (x86)\CMake 2.8\bin\cmake.exe" -DBUILD_TYPE=Release -P cmake_install.cmake
if errorlevel 1 goto :VCEnd
:VCEnd" wurde mit dem Code 1 beendet.   C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft.Cpp\v4.0\Microsoft.CppCommon.targets   113

What does it mean? I'm a beginner with this and I don't know what options I have to use. I used the configuration "Release Win32", is this correct?
I have Vista 64Bit.

Thank you for answers!

I do not understand what that error means.
Maybe the install directory was not given or the path does not exist.
Anyway the install just copy the libraries and the include files.
You should be able to do it by hands.

Thank you, that helped. I also don't understand the error, but if I can do it by hand it's okay.

I also got this error (or what I'm assuming is the equivalent in English). It turned out I had to run Visual Studio as an administrator to install to the folder I wanted.
