I’ve been using calculix via PrePoMax for a bit now. However I want to install it separately now with version 2.20. I have seen a few threads on it but they tend to lack a complete guide on how to install it on Windows. There are usually multiple other software packages that also need to be installed in order for it to work, sometimes installing those packages requires hunting down another guide on installing that dependency and so on…
Is there any way we can put this information in one spot or page on a github repo with version 2.20 so everyone who wants to can install it without hunting down a bunch of software packages and deciphering how to install them.
Relevant threads I have seen
Add support for Cygwin and WLS
Bitbucket post for Add support for Cygwin and WLS
calculixforwin thread without 2.20
CalculiX Launcher 2.5 is released - #2 by imirzov
this thread mentions building 2.20 in cygwin
It seems you had the same exact problem I am having on 8/2020 as you mentioned in this thread
Could you perhaps share the build you made so everyone can use it?
I would appreciate any help anyone can provide as there seems to be a ton of functionality I am missing out on without the latest version on windows.
Furthermore I would be willing to write up what I end up doing to install calculix on windows on whatever github repo is recommended.
Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.
