Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Problems with building with VS 2010 and VS 2012

I'm afraid our Windows support person has moved on to greener pastures, and so we don't actually support it any more (in fact, the 1.7 version specifically removed the support code).

Our friends in the cygwin world have a module that allows you to continue using OMPI on those systems - you might check it out

Just to note, I tried it with VS2008 too and it worked fine in x86 mode, but failed in x64 mode. Here is error I get with VS2010 and VS2012 when I execute 'cmake-gui ..' and push Configure:
