I just updated to Julia v1.2 and can’t use Mimi or any of the Mimi registry model packages. Other Julia packages work fine and Mimi works fine on v1.1.
I get the following errors after saying
.....julia\packages\SpecialFunctions\fvheQ\deps\usr\bin\libopenspecfun.dll cannot be opened, Please re-run Pkg.build("fvheQ"), and restart Julia. ERROR: LoadError: Failed to precompile StatsFuns [4c63d2b9-4356-54db-8cca-17b64c39e42c] ERROR: LoadError: Failed to precompile Distributions ERROR: Failed to precompile Mimi [e4e893b0-ee5e-52ea-8111-44b3bdec128c]
UPDATE: I sorted it out. I re-installed Julia v1.2 just to have a clean slate. I had to run Julia as an administrator to install Mimi and MimiRICE2010. Still got the same errors, but then had to run
Pkg.build("SpecialFunctions"). Mimi and RICE then work (even if not run as an administrator). I saw the hint to try as an administrator here: Git Issue . Seems like it might be an issue with symlinks on Windows? Any thoughts on how to address this? I’m writing replication code for a paper and it’s not ideal to have Windows users run into this problem.
