I followed exactly the same instructions mentioned in the form.
step 1: Get the source code for
the current standard distribution of NEURON nrn-nn.tar.gz
and--unless you're one of the "very few users" mentioned above--the corresponding version of InterViews iv-mm.tar.gz
Step 2: So before you compile NEURON under MSWin, we recommend getting a precompiled installer--either for the current standard distribution, or the most recent alpha version, depending on your needs--and using it to install NEURON on your PC. This takes care of important registry settings, and sets up all of the files and directory structures that your custom compiled version of NEURON will need.
The following instructions assume that you have already installed and configured Cygwin and, for the reasons described above, installed either the standard distribution or a recent alpha version of NEURON.
mv iv-mm.tar.gz neuron
mv nrn-nn.tar.gz neuron
tar xzf iv-mm.tar.gz
tar xzf nrn-nn.tar.gz
configure, make, and install InterViews
In the rxvt window,
configure and make NEURON
[make failed to run]
Copy the custom dlls to c:\nrnnn\bin
But first you might like to put the "old" ones in a safe place, in case you would ever want to use them again without having to reinstall NEURON.
Using the MSWin file manager ("Windows Explorer"), create a subdirectory in c:\nrnnn\bin
and call it "old". Then drag cygIVhines-3.dll and cygnrniv.dll from c:\nrnnn\bin to c:\nrnnn\bin\old .
Finally, in the rxvt window
cp src/mswin/cygnrniv.dll /cygdrive/c/nrnnn/bin
cp i686/bin/cygIVhines-3.dll /cygdrive/c/nrnnn/bin
[cygIVhines-3.dll and nrniv.dll custom dll's were not found in the corresponding directories.]
Do I need to install native python or how to compile Python as neuron module?[Prior to this i have installed native Neuron7.1 under MSWIN]
Can someone help me out?
