Installing the Windows version of IDL

Post by r.d. » Thu Apr 29, 2021 5:24 pm

Hello,

I need to install the Windows version of IDL on a linux system in order to support a Windows-based application built around IDL. When I try to install IDL version 8.5 with:

wine IDL_ENVI53SP1win64.exe

a windows pops up with the following error:

The installation of MSCV_2010_SP1_x64_32bit has failed. Setup will now exit.

This of course prevents installation. I should mention that the linux system does not have any 32bit library installed. Does anyone know a way to get around this and complete the installation? Is there some verbose options that would allow me to see more of what is the actual issue?

Thanks,

RD

Wine needs the non-optional dependency 32-bit Linux libraries installed. All Windows installers are 32-bit.
