PETSc on Windows

Youngling Posts: 4 Join Date: 1/3/11 Recent Posts
Hi,

The PETSc library is used as an optional solver in D-Flow FM. Unfortunately it is only available on Linux. Is there somebody who can deliver the Microsoft Visual Studio project file(s) and needed code changes to build PETSc on Windows?

Please help us to improve D-Flow FM.

Thanks.

Hi Adri,

I am not a windows person and since SciNet at University of Toronto, where I run my parallel secnarios accepts only UNIX/Linux I use Windows only for running DeltaShell and configuring things. Even that is not perfect, for example generating the parallel MDU files is faulty in the GUI (I opened a BUG report in the Delta Shell forum since a formal bug reporting tool is not available or I am not aware of it), but works fine with
generate_parallel_mdu.sh
provided in the "bin" directory on Linux.

However, I found this note but requires using Cygwin for compiling it, which may come together with some performance hits.
