Library error when running Melts-rhyolite in Windows x64

I've been trying to follow download instructions for rhyolite MELTS in Windows that were posted here: (,959.0.html).

However, when I attempt to run the program by typing 'Melts-rhyolite' in the Ubuntu command line, I receive the following error:

"Melts-rhyolite: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

I did update all my ubuntu libraries, and tried while running the X410 server and and also while running the Xming server. Any idea what I'm doing wrong here?

Any help is much appreciated!



This error was discussed on the Linux board, so easy to miss (,826.0.html).

Anyway, the solution is to use the version of rhyolite-MELTS on the alphaMELTS links page (also linked in the WSL instructions):

The download site at OFM-Research is out of date, particularly the Linux part.
