I am trying to install fcgene so that I can convert vcf dosage files to plink files. It seems that I have successfully configured, but "make" produced two error codes [Makefile:33: fcgene.o] Error 1 [Makefile:23: all] Error 2

It is possible to run the program without installing it, but when I type "fcgene", I get an error message that the program can’t run because the file libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll can’t be found. I copied that file into the same directory as fcgene.exe but then got an error message that libstdc++-6.dll could not be found.

I seem not to have some files in the right place, but I did not think fcgene had any dependencies. Is there some library I should install in the fcgene directory? Or is there a way to compile and run the program without the files.

All help will be appreciated.

Can you use the Windows 10 Subsystem for Linux?

Unfortunately, I inherited a machine that is running Windows 7.

I have never used it because I use Ubuntu, but have heard a lot of trouble about cygwin. What about installing Linux, in a virtual machine or dual boot?

That is rough, Windows 10 Subsytem for Linux is really good. It is definitely worth the ~$40 to upgrade if you are going to continually doing bioinformatics on a Windows machine.

A VM running Ubuntu is probably your best bet, to be honest. There are a lot of tutorials on how to set them up, and they usually work pretty well, albeit a lot slower than typical given they only have access to a fraction of your system's resources.
