Install PETSC on Intel Microsoft Windows 2000

This note describes how to install PETSC on a machine with following specs:

CPU: Pentium 4
OS: Windows 2000
Compiler : Intel Compiler
Math : Intel MKL
MPI : MPICH
Shell: cygwin

Prerequirement:
install MKL: MKL should be in C:\Program Files\intel, with directory name MKL70, MKL61 or MKL, make sure ia32/mkl_c_dll.lib should be the only one library needed
install MPICH: MPICH should be in C:\Program Files\MPICH

edit :

search in *.py for 'C:\Program' and 'cygdrive', change drive letter for your pre-installed software

edit : ${PETSC_DIR}/makefile
search for the FIRST "MINFO_", change MINFO_ to ${MINFO}
remove the next few lines until line: -@$(RM) MINFO MINFO_
change this line to: -@$(RM) MINFO
This is because unknown problem with sed

environment:
adding the MKL DLL directorty to PATH
before entering cygwin, run vcvars32 first to set the environment

entering cygwin
go to root of PETSC
run following commands:
PETSC_DIR=`pwd`; export PETSC_DIR
config/configure.py --with-fc=0 -with-vendor-compilers=intel
make BOPT=O_c++ all
make BOPT=O_c++ test
NOTE: configure.py will use flag -TP for compiling both .c and .cpp files.

If everything is right, configure.py should automatically locate pre-installed
MKL and MPICH. The end of ${PETSC_DIR}/configure.log should look like
following:


Compilers:
C Compiler: /cygdrive/c/users/xw/work/petsc-2.2.1/bin/win32fe/win32fe icl --nodetect -MT
C++ Compiler: /cygdrive/c/users/xw/work/petsc-2.2.1/bin/win32fe/win32fe icl --nodetect -MT -GX -GR -TP
PETSc:
**
** Configure has determined that your PETSC_ARCH must be specified as:
** ** PETSC_ARCH: cygwin-intel
**
**
** Configure has determined that your PETSC_DIR must be specified as:
** ** PETSC_DIR: /cygdrive/c/users/xw/work/petsc-2.2.1
**
** Please make the above changes to your environment or on the command line for make.
**
BLAS/LAPACK: /cygdrive/c/Program\ Files/Intel/MKL70/ia32/lib/mkl_c_dll.lib
MPI:
Type: Default MPICH install location (C:\Program Files\MPICH with MS compatible SDK
Version: 1.2
Includes: ['/cygdrive/c/Program\\ Files/MPICH/SDK/include']
Library: ['/cygdrive/c/Program\\ Files/MPICH/SDK/lib/mpich.lib', 'ws2_32.lib']
Python Configure Actions
These are the actions performed by configure on the filesystem

hi
I have Microsoft visual studio compiler on the Windows OS and I want to use the PETSC library, but I cant run configure with win32fe which is written in the official site of PETSC
(http://www.mcs.anl.gov/petsc/petsc-2/documentation/installation.html#Windows)
can you help me?

thanks a lot
