In the downloads page, they claim that:

The package for Windows should be available soon. Watch for announcements!

Second that! I've also been waiting since Salome 8.3...I'm even considering compiling myself but the compilation instructions are not well documented.

Salome  9.2 for windowsgives a "ACCESS VIOLATION at addr 0x0000 during READ" error on opening mesh files created by ver 8.3.

Is it a bug which needs addressing or am I dong something wrong?

Can you please attach a MED file which import causes mentioned error? I was not able to reproduce this pb on a sample file, so probably there's some specific problem in the MED file?

I didnt  import any med files. I was simply opening the hdf file created in the ver 8.3 for windows. The 'geometry' module opens up well, but when I click on the 'mesh' module, it gives the READ ACCESS VIOLATION error.

Leave alone opening any file. Simply clicking on 'mesh' module or Hexablock module  causes this error. In YACS and fields modules it says that the opengl driver may not render properly and I have to go on with this risk of improper rendering

I have a fairly old PC but running WIN 10 without trouble. My Salome 8.3 WIN ver runs flawlessly. Is it the display driver (opengl)? but geometry operations are executed without any trouble in 9.2.

Thank you

OK, then it has no relation to MED files.

SALOME 9.2 uses newer version of ParaView. In this version ParaView switched to new OpenGL backend, which requires quite recent GL features. Since SMESH module uses VTK viewer from ParaView, you have this error since viewer cannot be properly initialized.

Probably installing latest driver for your graphic card may solve the problem, provided that graphic card supports needed features :(

Sorry to say that salome 9.2 does not run in my other laptops too. Same run error. Nothing to do with opengl driver because that is updated to the most recent driver.

Please do check the win version for bugs

Can you please try downloading and checking latest version of ParaView application (paraview.org)?

If it works but SALOME doesn't, well, the problem seems to be in SALOME indeed.

Yes you are right Mr Sandler. I tried with recent paraview and it is opengl problem.

So does it mean that I have to stick on to the older version 8.3?

'Cos my intel G41 board does not seem to have driver updates anymore.

Or to change the PC / laptop?

Thank you

I'm afraid that in this case you won't be able to use latest versions of SALOME, sorry for bad news :(

However, you can still keep using older versions of SALOME.

Hi,

We found a workaround that works with too old NVidia graphic cards. Can you check if it works also with Intel cards?

- Download Mesa3d for Windows: mesa3d-18.3.4-release-sfx.exe

- Extract it (either with double-click or right-click 7-zip)

- In the extraction folder of Mesa, go to x64, select and copy opengl32.dll

- In the extraction folder of Salome, go to MODULES\INSTALL\GUI\RELEASE\GUI_INSTALL\bin\salome and paste opengl32.dll

- Double-click on run_salome.bat

Now VTK view of SMESH and Paraview view of PARAVIS should open without error.

Christophe
