Installing 5.1.6.6 on Windows XP64

Sanjay Velamparambil
Hi,

I am at my wits end to get HDF5 built on my system
running Windows XP 64 (AMD Opteron (Dual Core) x2 ,
2.2GHz, 16GB RAM, Windows XP Profession x64 SP2,
Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 .NET). I am trying to use
HDF for storing large test matrices in my work in a
portable format.

First of all, there are no .vcproj/sln files shipped
with the source (5.1.6.6), that I can load directly.
Secondly, when I tried building from the dsp/dsw
files, the .[ch] files are at the wrong location (the
dsp files expect the sources to be in ../../src (with
respect to the build directory) whereas the actual
sources exist in $(TOPLEVEL)/src directory. So the
paths are incorrect.

Is there a different build script that I can use with
visual studio net? (the 1.8.0 beta5 is not much better
either-- fails with missing files such as H5FDstream.c
etc. Also, I do not want to use a beta version as this
is going to be in a production code).

I understand that you may not have all the resources
to do a full support on Microsoft platforms.
Nevertheless, I must say that the current windows
support is broken and too much of a pain to work with.


It would be great if someone provide the directions to
resolve this issue.

Thank you
Sanjay Velamparambil

We don't support 1.6.6 on windows 64-bit machine. The problem about the
directory seems that you are not following the instructions at
install_windows.txt to correctly unzip the windows zip file.

We do support 1.8 on windows 64-bit machine. The problem about
H5FDstream.c is due to the removal of H5FDstream.c from HDF5 src
directory. We probably didn't pull out this file from our windows release.
We should fix this now. Probably we should provide a patch. Sorry about
the problem caused by this. Now you can remove that source file from the
hdf5.dsp or hdf5dll.dsp project file

We do suggest you use 1.8.

Installing 5.1.6.6 on Windows XP64

FWIW

if you unpack correctly, VS converts the dsw to sln along with all the
projects and compiles out of the box on x64.
