Re: Context error in Xcos Scilab 6.1.0 - Bugzilla #16357

Hello Samuel ;


I’ve taken into account Chin Luh Tan’s remark  to open scilab in administrator mode with a right click on scilab icon :



, and run a new time your patch with the replace file « script2var.sci »




--> cd SCI/modules/scicos/macros/scicos_scicos

ans  =


  "C:\Program Files\scilab-6.1.0\modules\scicos\macros\scicos_scicos"


--> predef clear


--> genlib scicos_scicoslib

ans  =




--> clear script2var


Basic and trial tests program are available in Bugzilla #16357.

Before the modification :



And now

Samuel, I let you close the bufgzilla with resolved fix ?


Are a merge version foreseen and a nightlybuild , ? When ?


Thanks a lot


Also thank to Chin Luh Tan for his help.


Pierre P.

I have full read/write rights on my machine

This is the same issue as with Jan for bitget() last week.
I never install Scilab in the default directory C:\Program Files\....
I think this is why i do not get this message.

If you had strictly no admin rights, you could even not copy the file in its directory.
But maybe there is an intermediate level of administration...
Sometimes when we put such a copy in a "System" directory, we are prompted for confirmation,
while theoretically being full rights admin.

One thing is sure: This is a Windows issue, not a Scilab one.

I will try installing Scilab in its default directory, and see how
Windows can be tuned to accept compiling Scilab libs.
