Dear Salome users,
A Salome 5.1.5 version for tests on windows is available ...
Thanks to OpenCascade team, the famous "sub-shape selection in occ viewer" is fixed !
You can now compile salome on windows ... See the howto at
Hoping this version will be useful to someone !

Thank you very much for this release!
It is very comfortable to work in the same environement with the CAD application, without the need to reboot every few minutes!
At a first look, all seems to work fine, but for the fact that sometimes (not always) Salome crashes when, in mesh module, the "Automatic hexahedralization" is choosen.
It seems to me that the mesher is able to run both cores of my processor at 100%, is it correct?
Win XP 32 SP3.

Thanks, looks like working fine.Open HDF (createad in linux )file in 150 Mb!!. Normally closing without crash. win xp 32 sp3.
Thanks for this release.
All is working fine, but I am experiencing problems while switching from geometry module to mesh module and vice versa: almost at every single attempt, the application simply crashes.
I'm using both windows vista and xp 32, still getting the same issue.
Errata corrige: the application crashes only when I go from mesh module back to geometry module, and not when I enter mesh module from geometry module.
Sorry for double-posting, but I can't edit my previous message.

There is a common issue with compiling SALOME on 32-bit Windows: all .bat-files rely on "C:\Program Files" folder, which is called "C:\Program Files (x86)" on 64-bit system.
And I've got a simple question - how does SALOME know which modules to load on startup (like GEOM, MESH, PYHELLO)? How can I configure it? Where can I read more on this?

Beginner Question using xpPosted by Russ Puskarcik at February 22. 2011
I know very little about windows application programming. I am interested in using a CAD application on my xp machine, but I do not know CAD either. I was hoping to learn as I go, but am having quite a bit of difficulty getting started. Firstly, my investigations regarding free or open source CAD lead me to Open CASCADE. So I installed it only to find that there is NO USER INTERFACE. This made it quite unusable to me since the purpose of my wanting a CAD application was to do some computer aided design. My question is this: Can I use Salome to design 2D and 3D objects, without knowing anything about how the application is programmed, compiled, or otherwise designed... just as a dummy Windows user?
Is Salome in fact a user interface for OpenCASCADE? Is it user friendly and are there tutorials for it?

Tutorials are available here: http://www.salome-platform.org/user-section/salome-tutorials/copy_of_salome-tutorial
you should be able to know with them if Salome will fit your needs.

OpenCascade is not really a user kind of application, it is more of a kernel for developers to use and develop applications for users, like Salome.
In any case, if what you want is a free CAD application, you can look into FreeCAD. As Salome, FreeCAD also uses the OpenCascade kernel.

Thanks for your work.
I quite often experience the problem that application simple crashes during different actions (working with geometry, changing of different parameters of the mesh, calculating mesh, ...). In folder \release\utils\tmp\logs\ haven't found anything that I can be useful for me to understand the reason of crashing.
Is it a known issue? In comments above only crashes during definite actions were mentioned...
Can you give me a piece of advice how to understand the reason and may be fix the problem if it something concerned my workstation only?

Dear Salome users,
Can someone advise me how specifically you link your program in Windows to MEDMEM? I was successful in doing this in Linux, so I repeated the same for Visual C++, but I get access violation.
I, basically, created a project with only testFile.cxx (provided by default in MED module), indicated the include directories to HDF, Med and MEDMEM and also linked against: med.lib;medmem.lib;hdf5.lib. In the run directory I placed: hdf5dll.dll, interpkernel.dll, med_V2_1.dll, medC.dll, medimportcxx.dll, medmem.dll, MEDWrapperBase.dll. Although I built the project with MSVC 2010, I changed platform toolset to V90, as those libs where built with older Visual C++.
I also define variables: WNT, WIN32 and PCLINUX. (The last one is strange for windows, but without it one of the type definitions is undefined. see: MEDMEM_define.hxx. line 121)
So, when I run the code I get access violation in the second line (please see below) :
MESHING myMeshing ;
Thank you in advance,
