Compiling EMAN2 on Windows

  1. Use cmake to generate Visual Studio 2008 solution:

  • Download cmake windows installer cmake-2.8.1-win32-x86.exe from http://www.cmake.org/HTML/index.html.

  • run cmake, choose generation solution for visual 2008, fill the EMAN2 source directory to "Where is the source code", and specify a directory to "Where to build the binaries".
  • Specify the CMAKE_CONFIGURATION_TYPES to release.
  • click configure button, then click OK. You will get error dialog. Then follow the next item to solve all dependency libraries.

  1. Install and configure the dependent libraries:

  • Note: I suppose all packages are installed on C: drive. You can adjust it according to your actual path.
  • Python

    Download python-2.6.5.msi from http://www.python.org, run it to install.

    In cmake, set PYTHON_INLCUDE_PATH to C:/Python25/include
    In cmake, set PYTHON_LIBRARY to C:/Python25/libs/python25.lib
  • Numpy

    Download numpy-1.4.1-win32-superpack-python2.6.exe from http://numpy.scipy.org, run it to install.

    set NUMPY_INCLUDE_PATH to C:/Python26/Lib/site-packages/numpy/core/include
  • Boost.python

    Download boost_1_43_0.zip and boost-jam-3.1.18-1-ntx86.zip from http://www.boost.org/users/download/.

    unzip boost-jam-3.1.18-1-ntx86.zip, you will get a executable file bjam.exe, put this file in your PATH(make sure you can execute it in a console window).
    unzip boost_1_43_0.zip.
    open a Visual Studio 2008 Command Prompt, cd C:\boost_1_43_0
    run booststrap.bat
    bjam --with-python toolset=msvc link=shared threading=multi runtime-link=shared
    set the BOOST_INCLUDE_PATH to C:/boost_1_43_0/include
    set the BOOST_LIBRARY to C:/boost_1_35_0/bin.v2/libs/python/build/msvc-9.0/release/threading-multi/boost_python-vc90-mt-1_43.lib
    If you got compilation error, "error LNK1104: cannot open file 'boost_python-vc90-mt-1_43.lib'", then you need build boost.python library as shared library.

3. Actions before build:

  • In the Visual Studio 2008 menu, choose build -> configuration manager. Set the "Active Solution Configureation" to release if it's not. Then check the INSTALL and test in the check boxes.

  • right click the "Solution 'EMAN2'" in the left "Solution Explorer" pane, then choose "Build Solution". If you see all 27 projects build succeeded. Then you got a successfull EMAN2 build.

4. Runtime libraries:

  • copying the following runtime libraries into EMAN2/lib directory:
  • boost_python-vc90-mt-1_43.dll
    hdf5.dll
    libfftw3f-3.dll
    szip.dll
    zlib1.dll
    jpeg62.dll, and copy it as jpeg.dll
    libtiff3.dll, rename it to libtiff.dll
    libpng12.dll

5. Runtime dependents for EMAN2 GUI program

6. Set up Environmental variables

  • Set up following environmental variables:
  • Set EMAN2DIR to C:\EMAN2
    Set PATH to C:\EMAN2\bin;C:\EMAN2\lib
    Set PYTHONPATH to C:\EMAN2\lib

7. Test if EMAN2 works

  • After everything installed, type e2.py,
  • If you see error message like, "The procedure entry point _Z7qstrcmpRK10QByteArrayS1_ could not be located in the dynamic link library QtCore4.dll.". That means you may have other Qt4 libraries installed. Remove them, just use the Qt4 libraries come with PyQt4 will solve this problem.

    If you see error message like, "ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified module could not be found.". That means some dependent runtime libraries for libpy***.pyd are missing. Find what's missing and copy it into EMAN2/lib directory.

  • in the e2.py prompt, try following command:
  • img = test_image()
    display(img)
    img = test_image_3d()
    display(img)
