You could try running a virtual machine like VirtualBox under windows with a full linux install. If that's an option, I suspect it will be easier; it's how I run OPAL on my laptop.

Hello there!

I’m trying to set up OPAL for the first time. Sadly my work computer runs Windows, which makes things more difficult. Has anyone had success using OPAL on Cygwin before?

I’m currently stuck on the step of installing H5hut. I think I’ve got all the prerequisites installed properly. The configuration seems to go ok. But in the build step I get an error: “Unknown type name ‘MPI_COMM’”.

If I add “include <mpi.h>” to h5_types.h, then this error goes away, but I think this should a be a configuration issue, I don’t think I should be messing with the source code. Even with this include line added, I get a later error that various “HSPset_xxxx_mpio” functions are not defined properly. It seems to be that the connection from H5hut to Open MPI isn’t working properly…

Thanks so much for any help!
