== Preliminaries: Components needed to install the Kratos==
+
The information in this page was moved to GitHub: https://github.com/KratosMultiphysics/Kratos/wiki/Windows-Install
 
+
'''Last visit''' for the links: ''28 March 2010''
+
 
+
Note that this is a specific case of possible installation of Kratos in a '''64 bits computer''' under '''Windows 7''', and all the different components are not compulsory for the successful use of Kratos. You can select other equivalent C++ compilers, svn, etc. or other versions of those we are presenting.
+
 
+
Two examples of organization of files are provided. Of course, you should select only one of them.
+
 
+
=== C++ compiler. Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 ===
+
 
+
For developers using Windows, we recommend to use [http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-gb/express/default.aspx Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 or 2008]. If you are working with a 64 bits machine, be sure that you include the 64 bits tools in your MSVS installation.
+
 
+
=== SVN ===
+
 
+
It is recommended to use [http://www.rapidsvn.org/ RapidSVN]
+
 
+
The latest released version: 0.12, October 2009, RapidSVN-0.12.0-8051.exe
+
 
+
Download and run the file:
+
 
+
[[Image:RapidSVN.1.jpg]][[Image:RapidSVN.2.jpg]]
+
 
+
=== Kratos Source Code ===
+
 
+
By using RapidSVN, the kratos source files can be downloaded by taking the following steps:
+
* Go to <tt> Repository->Checkout </tt> and enter the following path to the kratos repository:
+
        http://kratos.cimne.upc.es/svn/kratos/
+
 
+
[[Image:RapidSVN.3.jpg]][[Image:RapidSVN.4.jpg]]
+
 
+
* Choose  a working directory where module: <tt>kratos</tt> will be created in your pc
+
** example A: "'''C:\Kratos2010'''"
+
** example B: "'''D:'''"
+
* "recursive" option have to be signed
+
* this will create a folder "C:\Kratos2010\kratos" or "D:\kratos" with all the required Kratos files.
+
 
+

+
 
+
=== Pre and Post Processor. GiD ===
+
 
+
We use [http://www.gidhome.com '''GiD'''] as our favourite pre and post-processor.
+
 
+
Download and install the latest version of [http://www.gidhome.com/download/do07.html '''GiD''']. Here we use the latest beta version for 64 bits (GiD9.2.9b-win-x64-Install.exe)
+
 
+
[[Image:GiDInstall.1.jpg]][[Image:GiDInstall.2.jpg]]
+
 
+
[[Image:GiDInstall.3.jpg]][[Image:GiDInstall.4.jpg]]
+
 
+
You should have to install the '''GiDpost External Library''' too (latest version, March 2010, ftp://gid.cimne.upc.es/pub/gid/Tools/gidpost1.70.zip).
+
 
+
Unzip the file in your kratos external libraries.
+
* example A: "C:\Kratos2010\kratos\external_libraries\gidpost" (already existing folder, the one by default)
+
* example B: "D:\external_libraries\gidpost" (independent folder outside kratos' directory tree)
+
 
+
To build the GiD postprocess libray:
+
* Open a DOS console (from Start - Programs - Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 - Visual Studio Tools - System Console
+
* Run vcvarsall.bat
+
[[Image:GiDInstall.5.jpg]]
+
[[Image:GiDInstall.6.jpg]]
+
* Change to the VC Common7\Tools directory (cd ..; cd Common7; cd Tools)
+
* Run vcvars32.bat
+
[[Image:GiDInstall.7.jpg]]
+
* change to the "gidpost\win" directory (remember, "C:\Kratos2010\kratos\external_libraries\gidpost" or "D:\external_libraries\gidpost")
+
* And depending on the version you want to compile (probably both of them) invoke:
+
  nmake -f Makefile.vc CFG="Release"
+
  nmake -f Makefile.vc CFG="Debug"
+
[[Image:GiDInstall.9.jpg]]
+
[[Image:GiDInstall.8.jpg]]
+
* This will create two new folders "gidpost\win\Debug" and "gidpost\win\Release" with the file gidpost.lib for the Debug or Release compilation
+
[[Image:GiDInstall.10.jpg]]
+
* '''Very important!''' Finally and only if you have selected a different directory to the default one (example B), copy the existing '''Jamfile''' file from the default folder ('''D:\kratos\external_libraries\gidpost''') to the one you are using for the libraries ('''D:\external_libraries\gidpost''')
+
 
+
=== Scripting Language Python. Python(x,y) ===
+
 
+
[http://www.python.org/ Python] can be downloaded from [http://www.python.org/download/ here]. At this moment the python 2.6 is supported.
+
 
+
Before installing Python, consider if you want to use it to [[How to plot graphs |plot graphics]]. In that case, you should check packages ([http://www.pythonxy.com/foreword.php python(x,y)], for example) which include [http://matplotlib.sourceforge.net matplotlib] or other equivalent graphic tools.
+
 
+
For this example, we will describe the full package Python(x,y) installation.
+
 
+
Download and run the installation file from http://www.pythonxy.com/ (latest version 2.6.2.0, March 2010, 426 MB, http://ftp.ntua.gr/pub/devel/pythonxy/Python(x,y)-2.6.2.0.exe)
+
 
+
[[Image:Python_xy_Install.1.jpg]]
+
 
+
Everything by default, but it is recommended to:
+
* select installation for all the users
+
* select the destination folders (to check the full installation process)
+
* select all the components to be installed
+
* folders:
+
** example A:
+
::::{|
+
|-
+
| general destination:
+
| C:\Program Files (x86)\pythonxy
+
|-
+
| python(x,y) documentation:
+
| C:\Program Files (x86)\pythonxy\doc
+
|-
+
| python kernel:
+
| '''C:\Python26'''
+
|-
+
| eclipse:
+
| C:\Program Files (x86)\pythonxy\eclipse
+
|-
+
| eclipse workspace:
+
| C:\Documents\Python
+
|-
+
| mingw:
+
| C:\Program Files (x86)\pythonxy\mingw
+
|}
+
** example B:
+
::::{|
+
|-
+
| general destination:
+
| D:\pythonxy
+
|-
+
| python(x,y) documentation:
+
| D:\pythonxy\doc
+
|-
+
| python kernel:
+
| '''D:\Python26'''
+
|-
+
| eclipse:
+
| D:\pythonxy\eclipse
+
|-
+
| eclipse workspace:
+
| D:\Simulations\Python
+
|-
+
| mingw:
+
| D:\pythonxy\mingw
+
|}
+

+
[[Image:Python_xy_Install.11.jpg]]
+
 
+
After the installation, you should check that Python has created a folder called "'''C:\Python26\libs'''" or "'''D:\Python26\libs'''".
+
 
+
=== Boost Library ===
+
 
+
Kratos uses the [http://www.boost.org/ Boost library].
+
 
+
Boost provides free peer-reviewed portable C++ source libraries.
+
 
+
==== Step1 - Install the building system ====
+
 
+
The compilation of both the Kratos and the Boost-library is performed using bjam which is a portable "make" like system and manages the compilation. Bjam has configuration files for many different compilers. This configuration files are contained in the "boost-build".
+
 
+
The following steps are needed to install the build system:
+
 
+
* Downlodad precompiled bjam for windows ((http://www.boost.org/doc/tools/build/index.html, latest version 2007) and unzip it in the external libraries folder: "'''C:\Kratos2010\kratos\external_libraries\boost\boost-build'''" or "'''D:\external_libraries\boost\boost-build'''").
+
* Open a DOS console and change to the boost-build\jam_src folder
+
* Run '''build.bat'''
+
[[Image:Boost-Build_Install.1.jpg]]
+
 
+
[[Image:Boost-Build_Install.2.jpg]]
+
* A new folder bin.ntx86 will have been created with a bjam.exe file in it.
+
* Copy the bjam.exe in the kratos root ("C:\Kratos2010\kratos\external_libraries\boost\boost-build\jam_src\bin.ntx86" to "C:\Kratos2010\kratos", in the example A; "D:\external_libraries\boost\boost-build\jam_src\bin.ntx86" to "D:\kratos", in the example A;)
+
 
+
==== Step2 - Install the boost library ====
+
 
+
You can install and build manually the boost library or you can directly use an installer. As said in the [http://www.boost.org/doc/libs/1_42_0/more/getting_started/windows.html boost] webpage: "''The easiest way to get a copy of Boost is to use an installer. The Boost website version of this Getting Started guide will have undated information on installers as they become available, or see Boost downloads or the installer provided by BoostPro Computing. We especially recommend using an installer if you use Microsoft Visual Studio, because the installer can download and install precompiled library binaries, saving you the trouble of building them yourself.''"
+
 
+
Download and run [http://www.boostpro.com/download BoostPro Installer] (latest version 1.42.0, 190K, boost_1_42_setup.exe, March 2010). You should register to freely download the file.
+
 
+
* select Visual C++ 9.0 (Microsoft Visual Studio 2008) and all the variants
+
[[Image:BoostInstall.1.jpg]][[Image:BoostInstall.2.jpg]]
+
* select all the components for VC9.0
+
[[Image:BoostInstall.3.jpg]][[Image:BoostInstall.4.jpg]]
+
* select "'''C:\Kratos2010\kratos\external_libraries\boost\boost_1_42'''" (example A) or "'''D:\external_libraries\boost\boost_1_42'''" (example B) as Destination Folder
+
[[Image:BoostInstall.6.jpg]][[Image:BoostInstall.9.jpg|294 px]]
+
 
+
[[Image:BoostInstall.7.jpg]][[Image:BoostInstall.8.jpg]]
+
* check that the following specific folders have been created: '''\external_libraries\boost\boost_1_42\lib''' and '''\external_libraries\boost\boost_1_42\bin'''
+
 
+
[[Image:BoostInstall.10.jpg|400 px]][[Image:BoostInstall.11.jpg|400 px]]
+
 
+
==== Step3 - Environment variables ====
+
 
+
* Check your environment variables (Control Panel->System and Security->System->Advanced System Settings)
+
[[Image:Boost-Build_Install.3.jpg]]
+
* Define the following variable:
+
** example A: BOOST_BUILD_PATH = C:\Kratos2010\kratos\external_libraries\boost\boost-build
+
** example B: BOOST_BUILD_PATH = D:\external_libraries\boost\boost-build
+
[[Image:Boost-Build_Install.4.jpg]][[Image:Boost-Build_Install.5.jpg]]
+
* check your path. In this moment, you probably have got something like (example A):
+
%CommonProgramFiles%\Microsoft Shared\Windows Live;%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;c:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Tools\binn\;C:\Python26;C:\Python26\DLLs;C:\Python26\Scripts;C:\Python26\Lib\site-packages\PyQt4;C:\Python26\gnuplot\bin;C:\Python26\Lib\site-packages\vtk;C:\Python26\OpenCV\bin;C:\Program Files (x86)\pythonxy\console;C:\Program Files (x86)\pythonxy\SciTE-2.01;C:\Program Files (x86)\pythonxy\mingw\bin
+
* you should add the following boost directories (\external_libraries\boost\boost_1_42; \external_libraries\boost\boost_1_42\lib; \kratos\external_libraries\boost\boost_1_42\bin; \external_libraries\boost\boost-build)
+
%CommonProgramFiles%\Microsoft Shared\Windows Live;%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;c:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\90\Tools\binn\;C:\Python26;C:\Python26\DLLs;C:\Python26\Scripts;C:\Python26\Lib\site-packages\PyQt4;C:\Python26\gnuplot\bin;C:\Python26\Lib\site-packages\vtk;C:\Python26\OpenCV\bin;C:\Program Files (x86)\pythonxy\console;C:\Program Files (x86)\pythonxy\SciTE-2.01;C:\Program Files (x86)\pythonxy\mingw\bin;C:\Kratos2010\kratos\external_libraries\boost\boost_1_42; C:\Kratos2010\kratos\external_libraries\boost\boost_1_42\lib; C:\Kratos2010\kratos\external_libraries\boost\boost_1_42\bin; C:\Kratos2010\kratos\external_libraries\boost\boost-build
+
 
+
 
+
 
+
== Compiling Kratos ==
+
# Copy the <tt> Common_Jamroot </tt> to <tt> Jamroot </tt>
+
# In the folder KratosR1 copy Common_Jamroot to Jamroot and then open it with a text editor: select and customize the parts marked as WINDOWS INSTALLATION
+
 
+
Finally compiling the Kratos using bjam
+
    bjam toolset=msvc threading=multi -j2
+
the "-j2" flag is to compile using 2 processors. Omitting it implies compiling with a single processor. "-jN" to compile with N processors
+
 
+
== Visual Studio Project ==
+
A simple interface for the compilation using Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 is provided at the link:
+
 
+
[[Media:Visual Studio 2005 ide.zip | ProjectFile]]
+
 
+
To use it simply download the file and unpack it in the directory "kratosR1".
+
The file treats the bjam as a makefile and allows compiling inside the visual studio environment
