Dear Vishal,

I'm not a aware of a free license for the Intel Fortran compiler for commercial use, but that is a question better answered by Intel.

Dear Mr. Jonkman,

I'm new to openFAST. After downloading the openfast source from github and reading the documentation 'openfast.readthedocs.io', I did two things but failed.I have used Visual Studio 2017 with Intel Parallel Studio_XE2019.
(1) Building OpenFAST (.exe) on Windows with Visual Studio, it said that it cannot open \openfast-master\build\bin\Registry.lib. The error message is showed as figure 1.
(2) compile openfast-simulink on Windows with Visual Studio, it also said that it cannot open the file E:\OPENFAST\openfast -master \ build \ bin \ FASTlib_x64_matlab.lib. the error message is showed as figure 3 .

Do you have any idea for this problem? I will appreciate it very much if you can help me.

Thank you!
Xiangheng Feng

1. This issue should be fixed in the "dev" branch of OpenFAST. If you need to use the master branch, you can update the FAST solution file to solve this issue by following the instructions in this GitHub issue: https://github.com/OpenFAST/openfast/issues/509

2. I would guess that the path to the MATLAB library hasn't been set correctly. Double check that the configuration's "Linker->Input->Additional Dependencies" is pointing to an existing file.

Dear Mr. Jonkman,
I want to use the OrcaFlex Interface with OpenFastv2.4, could you tell me which version of OrcaFlex can OpenFast has the best compatibility.

Thanks!

Dear Xiangheng Feng,

I'm not sure as I have not used the OrcaFlex interface in quite a while. I would suggest reaching out to Orcina for guidance.

Good afternoon,

I am trying to install OpenFAST for my master thesis' work and I have a problem with the precompiled version which I downloaded at this link: https://github.com/openfast/openfast/releases.
I have also installed the Intel Fortran Compiler from here: https://software.intel.com/content/www/ ... ndows.html.

Nevertheless, when I double-click on the *.exe file, I get the following error, what can I do to fix it?

Thank you very much,
Matteo Rovelli

Dear Matteo,

It looks like you've asked the question as an issue on the OpenFAST github site, which has now been answered there: https://github.com/OpenFAST/openfast/issues/697.
