Question Help with Installation on Windows and Linus (Ubuntu) 

Forum: Installation and Configuration
Date: 21 Aug, 2013
From: ANUSIONWU Princess <ANUSIONWU Princess>

Hello All,

I am a new Geant4 user and having issues with installing it on both Windows and Linux OS

On WINDOWS: Following the instructions on 2.2. Building and Installing on Windows Platforms (of the bookinstallguide), the steps were successfully executed up to step 12. I see Build failed. I have tried running the steps over and over again but I still get build failed.

On LINUX: The build was successful but when I try running example B1, the final command:

$ ./exampleB1 (page 22 of the bookinstallguide)

gives the error that some data are required to build this example. I re-run cmake and set the GEANT4_INSTALL_DATA variable to ON: (page 5 of the bookinstallguide) and got the reply:

-- The following Geant4 features are enabled: GEANT4_BUILD_CXXSTD: Compiling against C++ Standard 'c++98' GEANT4_USE_SYSTEM_EXPAT: Using system install of EXPAT -- Configuring done -- Generating done -- Build files have been written to: /path/to/geant4.9.6-build

when I try building example B1 again, I still get the error message that some data are needed to build it.

Any urgent help will be appreciated please. Thank you.
