Salome 6.4.0 can't activate Geometry module on Windows XP.

Posted by Hélio C. Bortolon at February 15. 2012

Dear colleagues,

I installed Salome 6.4.0 after some struggle (out of memory complaints by 7zip) and things seems to flow smoothly until I can't get into the 'geometry' environment.

Importing python scripts from my Salome 5.3 (CAELinux 2010) works, although I can't see the figure, the objects tree appears normally.

The messages I get in the cmd.exe window is:

The final phrase, in portuguese, says 'It has not been possible to fint the specified procedure', in a rough translation.

And, finally, the message which comes with the error dialog 'Failed to activate module Geometry'

 fits to your parameters

All the cited files are in place, except for the CatalogResources.xml. What is this file? It didn't came with the Windows package.

Since Salome starts, I guess this is not a MS Visual Studio issue.

Could anyone give me a hint on what may be causing this?

I thank you all in advance for any help.

Hélio.

Hello Hélio,

I am not sure, but probably the archive was not extracted completely. It seems that something's wrong with the SALOME installation. For example, file .../SALOME-6.4.0-WIN32/MODULES/KERNEL/share/salome/resources/kernel/CatalogResources.xml should be located in that directory as mentioned.

Try to re-unpack the archive containing SALOME binaries - try using another archiver program instead of 7z (for instance, native WinXP uncompress utility). Also, I would recommend you to install SALOME to the directory without space symbols, for instance D:\SALOME-6.4.0-WIN32. The problem might be caused by space symbols in the installation path (though this has been well tested and no problems were detected).

Regards,
Vadim.

Hello Vadim,

Thank you very much for the hint.

After unpacking the zip file again, this time with unzip32 (which came in the DJGPP bundle), this problem no longer exists.

Best regards,

Hélio.

Hello

I'm sorry to reup this topic but I have a similar problem with Salome 6.6.0

I tried to extract the file with three different softwares (including unzip83) but I still have the problem. There you have what's on console

Do you know any solution at this problem ? The name of the missing files, or something else ?

I'm on Windows Vista (yeah it's crap I know but it's my work computer...) 32 bits, with Python 3.3.2

I tried tu run it in administrator mod but that changes nothing

Thanks in advance for your help
