0.7.0-alpha not running on Win10


I’m not able to run version 0.7.0-alpha on Windows 10. When I try running the julia.exe a terminal window pops up and closes immediately. On some runs I managed to glimpse something saying “homedir” or “builddir moved” but it closed too fast to read the full message.

I tried both the 64 and 32 bit versions. I had the same problem previously with a 0.7-dev build and gave up on it.

Versioninfo on my current Julia install:

julia> versioninfo()
Julia Version 0.6.1
Commit 0d7248e2ff* (2017-10-24 22:15 UTC)
Platform Info:
  OS: Windows (x86_64-w64-mingw32)
  CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3450 CPU @ 3.10GHz

  LAPACK: libopenblas64_
  LIBM: libopenlibm

Solved the issue by deleting the JULIA_HOME environment variable.
