None file INSTALL cannot read symlink 

Forum: Installation and Configuration
Date: Jan 12, 04:09
From: Christopher Walker <Christopher Walker>

   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
    to duplicate at

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
