You have to send configure.log (send it to petsc-maint at mcs.anl.gov) or we
have absolutely
no idea what is going on.

Hi Petsc Experts


I've been running Petsc/TAO successfully under CVF VC but need to move to 64
bit. Now, I'm trying to compile Petsc on a Windows XP64, VS2008 C/C++ and
IVF 11 from the IVF compiler shell with Cygwin bash using the command


./config/configure.py                  \

     --with-cc='win32fe cl'             \

     --with-cxx='win32fe cl'           \

     --with-fc=ifort                            \

     --with-mpi-dir=/cygdrive/c/MPICH2 \

     --download-f-blas-lapack=1        \

     --with-clanguage=C++ CXXFLAGS='-DMPICH_SKIP_MPICXX -MT -GR -EHsc'


and get the following error:

TESTING: checkCCompiler from

However if I type cl at the command line, cl seems to work

Any help would be most appreciated.
