Hi Stephan,

I haven't tried to generate NMake Makefile to build Open MPI on Window, the original purpose of using CMake was to generate Visual Studio solution files. But if you can provide more information, e.g. error messages, maybe I can figure out the problem for NMake.

Thanks,
Shiqing

Update: NMake Makefile creation works with VC8, but using nmake to install openmpi creates an error...
i will try to find a way to build it.

Hi Shiqing,

i just checked out the code, but i am unable to create the nmake makefile with cmake.
cmake tells me, it is unable to define 8-bit types.
i also noticed, that for windows, the 1.4.2 release works with cmake, version above this making cmake to fail.
i am using the VC10 compiler, but as an alternative i can use VC8. maybe it's worth a try.
if i can make it, i will report :)

Hi Stephan,

For ompi-server test, you could probably refer to this Open MPI doc: http://www.open-mpi.org/doc/v1.4/man1/ompi-server.1.php .

Possible tests would be "ompi-server -r -", "ompi-server -r +", "ompi-server -r file", or you can also write a MPI program using MPI_Lookup_name/MPI_Publish_name functions.


Regards,
Shiqing

Hello,

i found no solution for this until yet.
Is there anyone who has a running ompi-server.exe on Windows XP?
If so, it would be great to tell me what i can do, to make ompi-server-exe running properly on WinXP.

Hello,

i am using Open-MPI on a WinXP Professional VirtualBox machine.
Open-MPI is build with cmake and nmake.
When i'm trying to use the ompi-ps tool i got the following failure (the same with ompi-server, ompi-clean and orted):



#######################################################################

D:\project\cluster_ompi>ompi-ps.exe
[vbox:03552] [[INVALID],INVALID] ORTE_ERROR_LOG: Not found in file D:\project\op
enmpi_1_4_2_src\orte\runtime\orte_init.c at line 125
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
It looks like orte_init failed for some reason; your parallel process is
likely to abort.  There are many reasons that a parallel process can
fail during orte_init; some of which are due to configuration or
environment problems.  This failure appears to be an internal failure;
here's some additional information (which may only be relevant to an
Open MPI developer):

  orte_ess_base_select failed
  --> Returned value Not found (-13) instead of ORTE_SUCCESS
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

on the other way, when use mpirun to start the tools like "mpirun ompi-ps.exe" there is no error.
It this normal, or maybe is there an fix to solve my problem?
I'm would be nice if somebody has a solution for this.
