I am Linux user and I plan to distribute a Julia software. So, unfortunately, I have to deal with windows and to make an installation tutorial.
When I install Julia 0.7 on win7 64bits, the .jl files are not linked with Julia-0.7.0/bin/julia.
When I try to do this association manually using the “open with” form, I select the C:\User\Fred\AppData\local\Julia-0.7.0\bin\julia but the Julia software does not appear in the form. And no link seems possible.
So, in Windows, it is very easy to use REPL interactively after Julia installation. But non interactive use of Julia seems to be really very difficult. If I click on a .jl file, Julia does not start. If I type “julia” on the command prompt, I see that Julia is not in the PATH.
I would like to start my software with a simple click because my users are not programmers. If I just “slide” my .jl file on the Julia shortcut, the software start but then execution is not possible because it does not execute in the software directory where some files are necessary…
Thank you for your help !
