Hello Vijay,

Thanks a lot for your email. I appreciate it. I tried 32 bit option -- my computer is 64 bit, though. It gave the following error message:

"The specified configuration type is missing. The tools for the configuration might not be installed.

fatal error: file 'Makefile_VC_DLL' not found".

I can clearly see MakeFile_VC_DLL in my ..\w32\ directory. I don't know why I am getting this message :S.

Did you also follow the same steps of Ultimately, I want to install glpkmex and use GLPK from Matlab. I have been able to install stand-alone GLPK (Guesk) but I don't think I can connect it to GLPKMex. That's why, I am trying to install GLPK using the steps that are mentioned in

Hello Nazmul

Notice that there are two bat files one for 64 bit and one for 32 bit:


It looks like compiler still (after steps you followed) does not support 64 bit configuration. So easiest way out, is to use second .bat fie above to build 32 bit outputs.

hope this helps !

I am trying to install GLPK in Windows 7. I am following the instructions of I have downloaded and installed the necessary programs:


1) Visual-CPP Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Express.

2) Microsoft Windows SDK for Windows 7 and .NET Framework 4 without "Visual C++ Compilers".

3) Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

4) Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Service Pack 1 Compiler Update for the Windows SDK 7.1


I have also downloaded GLPK-4.48 from  When I double click on Build_GLPK_with_VC10_DLL.bat file, it shows me the following error message:

"C:\WINDOWS\System32>rem NOTE: Make sure that HOME variable specifies correct path

C:\WINDOWS\system set HOME="C:\Program Files \Microsoft visual Studio 10.0\vc"\vcvarsall.bat x64

The specified configuration type is missing. The tools for the configuration might not be installed. The system cannot find the file specified.

NAME: fata error U1052: file 'MakeFile_VC_DLL' not found. Stop."


I have installed Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0 in C:\Program Files . I can see vcvarsall.bat in the 10.0\VC folder. The path of "VC10_DLL.bat' is set up correctly at C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\VC, too.

I don't know where these error messages are coming from. an anyone suggest how I can rectify this and install GLPK in my windows machine?
