[ADMB Users] Installing ADMB on Windows 8

Hi Mitsuyo,

I have used Visual C++ a lot with Windows 7, but do not have access to
Windows 8 yet for testing.  You may want to try using the gcc compiler:


or even easier, the ADMB_IDE installer:


However, if you really want to use the Visual C++ compiler, we would love
to hear back from you if you do get it to work.  You may try compiling an
ADMB program without the SDK installed (only Visual Express 2010
installed).  However, you will only be able to use 32-bit and you may run
into an error that it cannot find a header library.  If that is the case,
there is an SDK for Windows 8:


However, I notice that it may not contain everything that the SDK for
Windows 7 has.  Plus, I am not sure if you will need to use Visual C+
Express 2012 and how that interacts with the ADMB libraries.

I apologize that I cannot be of more help, but someone else may have more
experience with Windows 8.  I believe that future releases of ADMB will be
more Windows 8 friendly.

Good luck,
