Installing ELEGANT with CYGWIN

Post by fabioluneli » 08 Mar 2022, 21:49

Hello!

I am having problem at extracting the Elegant file using cygwin. Looks like cygwin isn't locating the paste, and when i tried "ls" command only two folders appears "bin" and "tmp". Any tip?

Thank you!

I don't understand what you are doing. Elegant isn't installed inside of cygwin. Click on the the icon and install it that way. You can then use cygwin to execute elegant.exe after it is installed.

Hello!

Actually i put the wrong title sorry. I am having problem with this step that is attached. I meant that cygwin isn't locating the elegant file that i downloaded. I have already tried to find the file using "ls" command, but only two files appear. Understood?

Thank you!

Thank you!

To get to c:\ inside of cygwin, you have to go to /cygdrive/c
Your download is probably in /cygdrive/c/Users/<username>/Downloads/

But you are looking at the source code here. I do not recommend compiling it yourself. You should instead download:
https://ops.aps.anl.gov/cgi-bin/oagLog4 ... nt-x64.msi
https://aka.ms/vs/16/release/vc_redist.x64.exe
Run both of these programs outside of cygwin.

After they are installed you can run elegant from inside cygwin. It should automatically be in your path:

$ which elegant
/cygdrive/c/Program Files/APS/Elegant x64/elegant
