Hi all,

I cannot install OpenMx in the new R 64bit version 2.11.0. Error message as follows:

>source('http://openmx.psyc.virginia.edu/getOpenMx.R')
Warning: unable to access index for repository http://openmx.psyc.virginia.edu/packages/bin/windows64/contrib/2.11
Warning message:
In getDependencies(pkgs, dependencies, available, lib) :
package ‘OpenMx’ is not available

Any help is welcome.
Thank you
Pierre.

Two problems in our

Two problems in our repository prevented this from installing. First, we haven't built any binaries for R 2.11. I've added a symbolic link from 2.11 to 2.10, so we'll see if R 2.11 can load libraries that were built using R 2.10. Second, we haven't built any binaries for 64bit Windows. This afternoon, I can search and see if it's possible to cross-compile for 64bit Windows on my 32bit Windows box. The other option is to build OpenMx from source.

OK, the 64-bit toolchain for R packages under windows is "under active development." If you really need a 64-bit address space, currently I'd recommend compiling the OpenMx library from source. There is some advice here: http://cran.case.edu/doc/manuals/R-admin.html#Building-R-for-64_002dbit-.... The alternative is to use 32-bit R.

I'll try downloading Rtools

I'll try downloading Rtools 2.11 and post a reply whether I can cross-compile a 64-bit binary on my 32-bit machine. The alternative is to install the 32-bit version of R 2.11.1.

It is possible to upload an R

It is possible to upload an R package the 64-bit windows builder: http://win-builder.r-project.org/. However we don't have a copy of 64-bit NPSOL library compiled for windows. This issue will need to wait until we receive that library.

RE: OpenMx for 64xWindows

Hi,
We are still waiting for a copy of 64-bit NPSOL library compiled for windows. As a result we still do not have a 64-bit windows binary installation of OpenMx. You can still try to install OpenMx from the source code.

Uh, you can't install OpenMx

Uh, you can't install OpenMx for 64-bit windows from the source code, because we don't have 64 bit NPSOL available for windows.

Whoops, my fault.

Sorry, momentarily brain collapse. Thanks Michael.

Michael is correct. Currently OpenMx (binary or source) cannot be installed on 64-bit Windows machine.
