SV: [Coin-ipopt] Problems with MUMPS

When I did as you told me it worked. Thanks!

Now my concern is to link the mumps .lib with  the Visual Studio solution.
Has anybody done that and what needs to be done to the original solution?

Hi Jens,

This is a strange error.  It seems that some compiled files are out of 
date?  (The dependency check of header files unforunately doesn't work 
with the NSVC compilers...)

Could you please do a 'make distclean', followed by a 'configure' and then 
'make install' again?  If that doesn't help, please open a ticket at the 
Ipopt project's page and attach the config.log file FROM THE Ipopt 
subdirectory (not from the directory in which you run configure).
