Sorry but we haven’t provided support for Windows installations for quite some time down. We don’t have the resources or personnel to do so.

However, if you would like to use MPI on Windows, we do suggest using either the Microsoft version which is available for free or the Intel version which is paid. Both are derivatives of MPICH which have their own additions to work on specific platforms or hardware. You can find more information at the downloads page of MPICH (www.mpich.org/downloads<http://www.mpich.org/downloads>).

Dear MPICH.org<http://mpich.org/>,

I recently tried to install MPICH2 on my Windows 7 64-bit machine using your binary version 1.4.1p1, and I had a small problem on the very last step (I followed the instructions given in http://swash.sourceforge.net/online_doc/swashimp/node9.html​). After installing the binary, I went to the command prompt and entered the following:

smpd -install
mpiexec -remove
mpiexec -register
mpiexec -validate
smpd -status

Every step worked fine, even changing the pass phrase, but the mpiexec -validate command returns FAIL. I tried reinstalling the package again, but I got the same result. My question is: is there a way to get more information about why the validation failed?​

Thank you for your time, I look forward to your response.
