Compiling and linking in vista

Hi

i have managed to install my old version of compaq visual fortran on my new vista machine. the developer studio works when I run as an administrator, but using the same trick on the fortran command prompt or the windows command prompt doesnt help. I enter a DF command and after about a minute it returns but does nothing. any ideas on how to fix this would be much appreciated.

thanks,


i hate vista

Vista's not my favorite yet, either.

There could be a million reasons why it won't run, many of which you won't be able to do anything about.

That said, perhaps turning off the UAC security, defining another user as an administrator, and trying to run Fortran might help. At least you won't be running into the whole "run as administrator" nightmare.

But, here's another thought...

If you're machine is powerful enough, maybe you could use Virtual PC or VMWare to build an XP machine where it will run.

(I cut my programming teeth on Fortran, a looong time ago!)

How to run digital fortran 6 on windows vista


Here is what I did. Open the DVD (right click and select Open), and then open the X86 folder. Run the Setup.exe file from there and it should install and work fine. I had an error during install near the end, but it seems to have done no harm. I compiled one of my old Fortran apps and it works fine.

96% setup was unable to create the program folder


I had the same problem, to solve it I repeat the installation and when the message "Setup was unable to create the program folder" I went to installation directory "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio" and I made a copy of the whole directory to another location in my hard drive. Then I back to installation screen and I accepted the message box. As it was expected original installation folder disappeared. I restored installation folder from the copy I had made previously. At last I created a short cut to "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\Common\MSDEV98\BIN\DFDEV.EXE" and started Visual Fortran from this shell without any problem. I hope this tip could be useful, regards. tbeltran

How to solve the upgrade patch problem for vs2005


Please send me complete details including your operating system and visual studio service pack version. If you are getting this error for windows vista then you can try later version of VS which works fine with vista and also i want to tell you you can use microsoft visual web developer express or microsoft visual c# developer express edition for the same purpose and also they consume less resources than VS.
Thanks

Visual Studio 6 Vista compatible?


According to MSDN Visual studio 2005 works on vista ( see here ) . But as a developer, i can suggest you, if it not works, you can easily maintain a dual boot system with another HDD. That would be better for you. A lot of developing tool can not work with vista. I started using vista and threw it away then.

Problem with Compaq Fortran & Vista


I found the solution fortunately:

It's enough to do a right click on the bottom: "Developer Studio" instead of double click, and select: "Run as Administrator" , then select: "Allow" and so on..

Try it, it works!
