Subject: [OMPI users] error compiling openmpi-1.6.1 on Windows 7
From: Siegmar Gross (Siegmar.Gross_at_[hidden])

Hi,

I tried to compile openmpi-1.6.1 with CMake-2.8.3 and Visual Studio
2010 on Windows 7. All service packs and patches from Microsoft are
installed.

I changed the following options:

CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE: "Debug" modified to "Release"
CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX: modified to "c:/Program Files (x86)/openmpi-1.6.1"
OMPI_ENABLE_THREAD_MULTIPLE: "no" changed to "yes"
OMPI_RELEASE_BUILD: "no" changed to "yes"
OPAL_ENABLE_HETEREOGENEOUS:SUPPORT: "no" changed to "yes"
OPAL_ENABLE_IPV6: "yes" changed to "no"
OPAL_ENABLE_MULTI_THREADS: "no" changed to "yes"

I also selected "Release" in "Visual Studio". Unfortunately I got the
following error ("void *" cannot be converted to "void **").

Fehler 77 error C2440: '=': 'void *' kann nicht in 'void **'
  konvertiert werden

What can I do to get around the error so that I can compile Open MPI?
Thank you very much for any suggestions in advance.

Kind regards
