[SOLVED] Troubles when installing Gnuplot

Postby samiam1000 » Wed Oct 11, 2017 1:48 pm

Hi All,

I am having trouble with the CFD workbench in Freecad. I opened a post in a different section, but I have been suggested to ask here.

About the thread, it is here https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=24770.


About the problem, it is quite easy: I have downloadad FreeCAD 0.17 (12367). I am running Win7 64 bit.

I can not install gnuplot, when I try to do this, I get the error you can see in the picture attached.



Any help, please? Thanks a lot,
Samuele

I think the most likely cause is that you do not have adequate permissions to write to the FreeCAD install location. Perhaps try running FreeCAD as administrator in order to do the installation of gnuplot-py.
Please provide all the information requested in this post before reporting problems with CfdOF.

Thanks. I am gonna try.
Honestrly, I find it "strange", since I can install cfMesh without problems.

Anyway, I'll let you know soon.

Thanks a lot,

Hi there.

I solved it, as well. I had to download again FreeCAD and then it works.

Now I have to start enjoying it :-).

Thanks a lot,
Samuele
