Cannot install on Windows

Issue #4 new
Tyler Hicks-Wright
created an issue assumes that paths will use forward slashes, which causes an error on windows:



Traceback (most recent call last): File ".\", line 7, in <module> lib_sources.remove('lib/svm_loqo.c') # this is an alternate backend for SVM-Light; only ValueError: list.remove(x): x not in list }}}

x not in list happens because the list contains 'lib\svm_logo.c' on Windows. Changing the forward slashes in to backslashes fixes the issue. I suggest using os.path.join('lib', 'svm_logo.c') instead.

    Hey all,

    This is still an issue and I am pretty stuck with my Windows machine.

    I usually just use the command line, but I sometimes use cygwin. Either way, still impossible (?) to install on Windows.

    Edits: 1. I was tired and used bad grammar, haha 2. Went through the and changed the direction of the slashes in the path myself. That part is resolved. Still some underlying problems with building the package, but that's on my end.
