Windows installation

Post by kiptoojames »


I am attempting to install Geopsy on windows 10 according to the documented procedure.
At the step which says Building QT4 an error appears Qmake failed, return code -1073741819 [**see below ]

I would appreciate assistance on way forward,

Sorry for responding so late. If you want to compile under Windows. You first have to install Qt 5. I use Qt 5.12.3 but it should work also with Qt 5.14. Qt 5.15 has never been tested. Install Qt from the graphical wizard. Under Windows, you can also install git. Even if you do not access to the source code with git, it provides a good terminal from which you will be able to compile geopsy. You will also need to compile FFTW and Lapack before starting the compilation of geopsy.

If you are running Windows 10, did you try the binary package?

Best regards,
