Hello Allan,

I installed the minGW Toolbox version 0.9.1-1 x64 on my window 7(x64) machine with the
Atoms Tool in Scilab but I get the following error message when I start Scilab 5.4 (x64):
 
Startup execution:

Mingw Compiler support for Scilab
	Load macros
Converting Libraries.
Build libblasplus.a

I would appreciate any help you could give to resolve this issue .

Thanks

Hi Dafe,

Did you install http://www.equation.com/servlet/equation.cmd?fa=programminglog as said in 
the description?

Hi Simon,

Thank you for your quick reply.

Yes, I first installed the gcc-4-5.2-64.exe from www.Equation.com as mentioned in the
description and next I installed the MinGW Toolbox.

Hi everybody, 

I use to compile C code in Scilab with the previous versions of Scilab and the Mingw
module, and it works well on Scilab 5.3.3. (Thanks for that guys !)
With Scilab 5.4, since I installed the Mingw ATOMS, Scilab crashes when it loads the
module just after the line "Build libblasplus.a".
I am on Windows 7 32 bits.

Please keep me in touch if you have an idea of the origin of this dysfunction.

Thanks,

David

Hello everybody



After succesfully installing the MinGw toolbox on Windows Vista (64 bits) and Windows 7 
(64 bits) machines, I encountered an error on a new Windows 8 (64 bits-) machine.

After I succesfully installed MinGW, I tried to install the MinGW toolbox, and  I got the 
following error message in the Scilab console:



atomsExtract: The extraction of the archive 'F:\Program Files\scilab-
5.4.\contrib\mingw\mingw_0.9.1-1.bin.x64.windows.zip' has failed.



Any help is appreciated.



Best regards,



Jan-Wim

Hi everybody,
i installed the toolbox 0.9.1 on win7/64 and got trouble during compiling/linking of other

toolboxes (i.e. usb-hid, own work,..). In my case the problem was a linker option defined 
in the template scripting file for building make-files (c:\Program Files
\scilab-5.4.0\contrib\mingw_0.9.1\scripts\TEMPLATE_MAKEFILE.MINGW):

original:
	$(LINKER) $(LINKER_FLAGS) -o $(LIBRARY).dll $(OTHERLIBS) -Wl,--out-implib=
$(LIBRARY).a -Wl,--export-all-symbols -Wl,--enable-auto-import -Wl	$(EXTRA_LDFLAGS)


works now:
	$(LINKER) $(LINKER_FLAGS) -o $(LIBRARY).dll $(OTHERLIBS) -Wl,--out-implib=
$(LIBRARY).a -Wl,--export-all-symbols -Wl,--enable-auto-import	$(EXTRA_LDFLAGS)


Now the "-Wl" is missing after "--enable-auto-import". Since that, i
have a lot of fun...

Kind regards

Hello,

We could not reproduce this error. Which MinGW version do you use?

Regards

Oh, i answered to the atoms.admin@scilab.org, that was may be wrong. Here my original 
answer from Fri, 5 Apr 2013 16:41:41 +0200:

Hi Vincent,

> We could not reproduce this error.   
I am not surprised, but it is just my experience.

> Which MinGW version do you use?  
i use version 0.9.1 on win7/64. See attached file (should be the
original file form your homepage). I copied it to Scilab/contrib and
installed gcc-4.7.2-64.exe form the recommended web page. All
compilation efforts did fail during linking step.

I also attached my changed
toolbox-tree (c:\Program Files\scilab-5.4.0\contrib\mingw_0.9.1\). May
be it will help.
If you have further question, don't hesitate and ask me, the
scilab-fan ;-)

Kind regards

Hi Silvio,

After investigation, it seems that this error comes from the gcc version you use. Can you 
try to downgrade your version to 4.5.2 for example? It seems that the -Wl flag is no more 
supported.

Regards.

Hi Vincent,
i also assume, that the gcc-flag makes trouble, but actually i don't like downgrade the 
system. You know the phrase: "don't change a running system". I am afraid to deny
your 
wish. I am sorry.

Kind regards
