Bug Report: Setup 4.2 fails to download taucs library

Dr. Frank Heimes
1) Run CGAL-4.2-Setup.exe
2) Tic checkbox [x] LAPACK and TAUCS precompiled libs
3) Proceed to install
> Installation succeeds up to and including the download of gmp and mpfr.
> The following error message appears:

---------------------------
CGAL-4.2 Setup
---------------------------
Unable to download https://cgal.geometryfactory.com/CGAL/precompiled_libs/auxiliary/win32/TAUCS-CGAL-3.7/taucs.h.zip. Error: File Open Error
---------------------------
OK  
---------------------------

> The error message reappears for the following files:

taucs.h.zip
taucs_private.h.zip
taucs_config_tests.h.zip
taucs_config_build.h.zip
blaswrap.h.zip
taucs-libs.zip

> Windows reports that this program might not have been installed properly.

4) Open the link https://cgal.geometryfactory.com/CGAL/precompiled_libs/auxiliary/win32/TAUCS-CGAL-3.7/ in a browser.
> The directory is accessible and the files can easily be downloaded manually.

The OS is Windows 8.
The PC is member of a company intranet; internet is accessed through a company firewall.

Probable Fix:
The CGAL setup should use the internet settings (i.e. proxy, etc.) from the windows control panel to access the internet.

Dear Dr. Heimes,

 

I want first to thank you for that detailed report.

 

Our Windows installer uses the NSIS Inetc plugin:

http://nsis.sourceforge.net/Inetc_plug-in

 

That plugin is documented to use the Windows proxy settings (at least those configured for Internet Explorer).

 

Can you try again with CGAL-4.3-beta1-Setup.exe? In that last version of CGAL, I have fixed a bug in the installer that could be related to the error you got (File Open Error), but is not related to proxies: the error may be that the destination directories do not exist. Do you have the following empty directories in your distribution of CGAL-4.2?

auxiliary\taucs\include

auxiliary\taucs\lib

 

Is that bug specific to TAUCS/LAPACK, or does it occur also if you tic the GMP/MPFR checkbox?

 

 

Best regards,

 

Laurent Rineau

Hi,

I am also facing issues while trying to install CGAL-4.6.1 behind proxy on Windows 7 SP1(32-bit). Specifically, installer is not able to download GMP and MPFR. Following Laurent's suggestion I have configured Internet Explorer to correct proxy settings and I am able to access internet.

Installer reports(excerpts only):
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
gmp-all-CGAL-3.9.zip downloaded successfully.
mpfr-all-CGAL-3.9.zip downloaded successfully.
Extracting contents of C:\Program Files\CGAL-4.6.1\auxiliary\gmp\mpfr-all-CGAL-3.9.zip to C:\Program Files\CGAL-4.6.1\auxiliary\gmp
  Error: ^¦Ä
Extracting contents of C:\Program Files\CGAL-4.6.1\auxiliary\gmp\gmp-all-CGAL-3.9.zip to C:\Program Files\CGAL-4.6.1\auxiliary\gmp
  Error: ^¬Ä
Completed
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

As can be seen it reports that GMP and MPFR are downloaded successfully but these files are actually empty. I would also like to add that installer does ask for proxy details before attempting to download mpfr and gmp.

I have the same errors while downloading GMP/MPFR with both CGAL 4.6 and 4.7beta1 installers.

ERROR SendRequest Error: Unable to download https://cgal.geometryfactory.com/CGAL/precompiled_libs/auxiliary/x64/GMP/5.0.1/gmp-all-CGAL-3.9.zip.
ERROR SendRequest Error: Unable to download https://cgal.geometryfactory.com/CGAL/precompiled_libs/auxiliary/x64/MPFR/3.0.0/mpfr-all-CGAL-3.9.zip.
ERROR SendRequest Error: Unable to download https://cgal.geometryfactory.com/CGAL/4.6/Manual/cgal_manual.zip.

I've never faced these issues before with CGAL 4.6.
Best and Regards.
