NSIS error installing binaries on Win 10 Pro

Post by aether »

Hi and thanks in advance for any help,

Installing Elmer on a new laptop:
  • Dell System Model XPS 13 9370
    Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-8550U CPU @ 1.80GHz, 1992 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
    OS Name Microsoft Windows 10 Pro
    Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 16.0 GB
Problem: On running the install wizard, I immediately get an NSIS Error.

1. Downloaded installer from Sourceforge and ran it. "Installer integrity check has failed. NSIS error."
2. Reviewed this page: https://nsis.sourceforge.io/Why_do_I_get_NSIS_Error%3F
3. Tried MSFT IE and flushed the browser cache. Also tried DuckDuckGo. Same error.
4. Downloaded a fresh copy from Sourceforge to my smartphone and then bluetoothed it to the laptop. Same error.

Stuck. Can anyone offer a suggestion?

Thx,

John

Hi,

I just installed Elmer successfully on a Win 10 Pro desktop machine, see viewtopic.php?f=2&t=6985. Did you take the nightly build as I did? If not, you might try it, it may work better.

HTH,
Matthias

I do not think sourceforge is kept up to date by Elmer, the latest window builds are here

Hi

Just added fresh Windows installer to sf.net and nic.funet.fi. ElmerGUI now comes with OpenCASCADE (occ) and VTKPost too. Seaki's new work with VTK8 made this possible. There are two versions, either with or without MPI.

Some notes on the configuration:
- OpenCASCADE with cadview functionality is supported.
- VTKPost is supported. Both these were made possible by Saeki's recent work to include VTK8 support.
- VTKPost still assumes the old style files for visualization with suffix .ep.
- ElmerPost, the obsolite visualization tool, is not supported.
- Hypre for parallel linear solvers is not supported.
- Zoltan for internal partitioning is not supported.

Some notes on installation:
- This is not a "trusted" installer. So you need to ask for more info as Windows tries to stop you from installing.
- MS MPI is installed automatically upon request. If it already there an error is reported but no worries.

Remember to set environmental variables, if not automatically set, for example

Code: Select all

set ELMER_HOME=c:\Elmer8.4
set ELMERGUI_HOME=%ELMER_HOME%\share\ElmerGUI
set ELMER_LIB=%ELMER_HOME%\share\elmersolver\lib
set PATH=%PATH%;%ELMER_HOME%\bin;%ELMER_HOME%\lib
I would appreaciate if you would report when facing problems.

-Peter
