Been having lots of trouble, installed 10 Gigs of “prerequisites” and still nothing but errors.
Just trying to make this part work: cargo build --release --features use-mock-routing
Now I’m at an error where it’s asking for a “gcc.exe” and I’ve tried Cygwin64, Mingw64 and so many things but nothing ever gives me anything called “gcc.exe” is there a way to get “gcc.exe” on windows?
I know @maidsafe_team is busy making the network etc but we have app devs needing this and windows is a major OS so it needs support please!
Yea the guys are mad busy, but maybe I can help out. if you type gcc.exe --version it should give output, without that then it won’t work. I have not used win since 1994 but I think there are several command lines there. One for mingw, one for cmd and another for visual studio.
In the terminal you are in though you will first need gcc in your path for sure.
Hey, I just installed this on Windows 10/64 and had no problem.
Go to this website and install MinGW. That shouldn’t give any problem.
Set your Windows path like the guy is doing here in this video. I directly linked to the right part in the video.
You should be able to check the version from whatever directory you’re in. That’s the reason you’ve been asked for GCC, the script wants to just start GCC and use it. If the path isn’t right the buildscript isn’t able to find that little executable.
I had trouble the first time. When you add the line in the path make sure to give an extra “enter”. Then the path to MinGW really gets added. After that choose the OK on all the different forms like you already did.The dude in the video is giving the extra enter as well, if you just choose OK it doesn’t work for some reason.
No, not really tried very hard though as I know a lot of others have trouble as well. I once build my own Vault and the “old” browser without Authenticator. I’ll wait until the devs say: here’s the script, should work now.
I think you are replacing your system path with only the single path entry for gcc. That’s not right, you need to add the mingw dir to your path not replace it.
Start the System Control Panel applet (Start - Settings - Control Panel - System).
Select the Advanced tab.
Click the Environment Variables button.
Under System Variables, select Path, then click Edit.
EDIT - Log in again before doing this as you probably have a screwed path right now
