None file INSTALL cannot read symlink 

Forum: Installation and Configuration

Hello,
   I am using: Windows 10, compiler Visual Studio 2017, cmake version 3.13.1, geant4 version 10.05.

I issued the command: cmake -G "Visual Studio 15 2017" -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=C:\Users\chris\OneDrive\Documents\Users\Chris\geant4_10_05-install -DGEANT4_INSTALL_DATA=ON -DGEANT4_USE_OPENGL_WIN32=ON C:\Users\chris\OneDrive\Documents\Users\Chris\geant4_10_05

from the directory: C:\Users\chris\OneDrive\Documents\Users\Chris\geant4_10_05-build>

I then issued the command: cmake --build . --config Release

and then cmake --build . --config Release --target install

the first commands succeeded, but the last command failed with the following error (among others)
 -- Install configuration: "Release"
  CMake Error at cmake_install.cmake:44 (file):
    file INSTALL cannot read symlink
    "C:/Users/chris/OneDrive/Documents/Users/Chris/geant4_10_05-build/data/G4NDL4.5"
    to duplicate at
    "C:/Users/chris/OneDrive/Documents/Users/Chris/geant4_10_05-install/share/Geant4-10.5.0/data/G4NDL4.5".

Looking at previously reported similar errors, this kind of error can be caused by not having administrator privileges for the required install directory. However, I am the administrator for this PC. Does anyone have a suggestion as to what might be going wrong ?

Thanks Chris
