Subject: [OMPI users] starting open-mpi
From: Ghobad Zarrinchian (gzarrin.edu_at_[hidden])

Hi all. I'm a new open-mpi user. I've downloaded the
OpenMPI_v1.5.5-1_win32.exe file to install open-mpi on my dual-core windows
7 machine. I installed the file but now i can't compile my mpi programs. I
use command below (in command prompt window) to compile my 'test.cpp'
program:

>> mpic++ -o test test.cpp

but i get error as follows:

>> The open mpi wrapper compiler was unable to find the specified compiler
cl.exe in your path.
     Note that this compiler was either specified at configure time or in
one several possible environment variables.

What is the problem? Is my compilation command right? Is there any remained
necessary steps to complete my open-mpi installation?
Is it necessary to specify some environment variables?

Thanks in advanced.
