I need some guidelines to help me install OpenMPI for windows. I have tried a few times but it seems this software was primarily designed for Linux machines. Has anyone made an attempt to install this software on windows and did you succeed? Please feel free to give me some directions and advice on potential pitfalls I need to avoid, during the installation and test run, to ensure this system works

How to install the latest version of OpenMPI on my windows computer

Hello,

OpenMPI is a high performance “Message Passing Library” that is open-source. It’s a good solution for having high performance and high quality as well. But it’s not available on Windows, I’m afraid.

Since v1.6, no maintainer is available for maintaining binary versions for a long time. So, there’s no one who could have installed OpenMPI v1.8.3 on Windows computer.

Though it’s discontinued for Windows, you can use the source to build for your Windows. Otherwise, you can use the “Precompiled Open MPI packages for Cygwin” from here.

You can get a documentation on this subject in details here.

Hello,

How are you? it is very easy to install OpenMPI. You should follow two methods to install it. 

First Method : Search the latest version from the on-line repositories as of today the latest version is 1.6.5. To do it you should follow the formula given below : [sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install- y auto tools-dev g++ build-essential openmpi1.5-bin openmpi1.5-doc libopenmpi1.5-dev # remove any obsolete libraries sudo apt-get autoremove]

Second method: You should take it directly from the website. You may use the following formula: sudo ech ”/usr/local/lib”>> /etc/id.so.conf.d/local.conf sudo idconfig-v.

That exactly it. If you want to learn click here.
