Our primary Mechanica user is trying to run a Mechanica Motion problem for the first time since he was switched over from Unix to Windows. When launching the analysis, he gets the error message "Compilation Failed. Additional information may be available from outside of Mechanica Motion by examining the engine's log file. Exit Mechanica Motion and then type 'mmwatch'
clearing that with the OK button brings up
Failed while generating or compiling equations of motion for 'motion_impact'. This may be a system or installation problem.
running the referenced 'mmwatch' at a DOS prompt brings back "Mechanica Motion Engine Not Started".
The user indicates that back on Unix they were required to install a separate C-compiler for Motion to work. Is this the case with the windows version as well? Do I have to download and install something? Any idea if maybe it is something else like a config setting in mechanica? I know it's not a licensing issue.
