==============================[ ERROR: SymEngine ]==============================


LoadError: Provider BinDeps.Binaries failed to satisfy dependency libsymengine_dummy
while loading C:\Julia\v0.6\SymEngine\deps\build.jl, in expression starting on line 50

================================================================================

================================[ BUILD ERRORS ]================================


WARNING: SymEngine had build errors.

 - packages with build errors remain installed in C:\Julia\v0.6
 - build the package(s) and all dependencies with `Pkg.build("SymEngine")`
 - build a single package by running its `deps/build.jl` script

================================================================================
julia> BinDeps.debug("SymEngine")
INFO: Reading build script...
The package declares 1 dependencies.
 - Library "libsymengine_dummy"
    - Providers:
      - Binaries

So it fails to associate libsymengine_dummy with current lib version C:\Julia\v0.6\SymEngine\deps\symengine-0.3.0\bin\symengine-0.3.dll
Has anyone encountered smth similar?


#2

Check the library in dependency walker. You may need to install msvc redistributables, or encourage the package author to use mingw-compiled binaries which shouldn’t have that requirement.


#3

Thanks. I have MSVC installed, however it doesn’t help
