quoFEM Installation Issue
« on: February 17, 2022, 07:10:07 PM »
Hello,

I installed quoFEM and I am trying to run the Two-Dimensional Truss: Sampling, Reliability and Sensitivity example to verify that the program is working properly, but I am getting "No dakota.err file - dakota did not run - problem with dakota setup or the applications failed with inputs provided" error after the "Failed to run the workflow!!!" error. I am attaching a screenshot of the debug.log.

How can I fix this issue?

Hi Francisco,

Thank you for posting the question.

Can you first try deleting and re-downloading the quoFEM? Some files could have been missed/corrupted during unzipping/moving. If the same error occurs, please type the below line in the Windows Command Prompt and share what it says.

"C:/Users/Francisco/Documents/quoFEM\\applications/performSIM/OpenSees/createOpenSeesDriver.exe" "C:/Users/Francisco/Documents/quoFEM/LocalWorkDir\tmp.SimCenter\templatedir\\dakota.json"  "runningLocal" "Windows"

Hello,
I deleted and redownloaded quoFEM (FYI, it's a different directory now: C:\Users\Francisco\Documents\quoFEM_Windows_Download). I attached the new debug log

I did as you suggested and ran the program again, which now says "NO VALID PYTHON - Read the Manual & Check your Preferences" ()) in addition to the "No dakota.err file - dakota did not run" message (see attached).

In trying the command line prompts you specified: "C:\Users\Francisco\Documents\quoFEM_Windows_Download\quoFEM_Windows_Download\applications\performSIM\OpenSees\createOpenSeesDriver.exe", I get a series of System Errors: (see last three attachments).

Francisco,

the missing 140.dll's need to be installed .. most windows computers that have any visual studio compiled app will have them installed on their machine by the applications installer .. we have no installer .. we do leave the app required to install the missing dll's in the download folder .. can you follow the instructions here:

Also to fix the NO VALID PYTHON error, please go to the preference and check-uncheck the three custom options inside the "external applications" box. It will update the python and other paths. This is a known issue that we are investigating.

Hi, I am facing a related issue, downloaded and installed today. Running the 2D Truss Example, error dialog says vcruntime140d.dll / *140_1d.dll are missing for OpenSeesDriver executable.  Does quoFEM package require both release and debug versions of VS to run (*140.dll and *140d.dll)?

Same here, I downloaded the '2/20/22 8:53 AM' quoFEM for Windows and it's working. Thanks!
