I am currently trying to install SageMath and gap3 (because I am in need of the Chevie package) on my Windows 7 computer. I am using Jean Michels gap3 for this, which I found at his website.
So I unpacked it to where my sage files are and tried "gap3 = Gap3(command='/usr/user/.sage/gap3-jm/bin/gap3.cmd')" , because it says on the doc.sagemath site that this will lead sage to the version of gap3 that I want to use (it says in the ReadMe that the cmd file is the one for Windows).
But if I type in "gap3" in sage afterwards gap3 doesnt open and if I try something like "x=gap3(1+1)" sage just tells me, that I didn't install gap3 the right way.
I am not able to provide links because of the Karma system, but I hope that it became clear what sites I am referring to.
I would be very happy if anyone could provide a fix to this.

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/46418/chevie-on-windows/?comment=46467#post-id-46467I don't think gap3 has been tested much with Sage in a while, much less on Windows. I would be surprised if this worked at all. Could you please enumerate the *exact* steps you tried (like, the actual commands)?Mon, 06 May 2019 18:21:26 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/46418/chevie-on-windows/?comment=46467#post-id-46467Comment by Erratis for <p>Hello,</p>

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/46418/chevie-on-windows/?comment=46469#post-id-46469Thank you for your reply.
I downloaded Sage for Windows and installed it (Sage itsself is running completely fine).
Then I went to Jean Michels website and downloaded the file gap3-jm11mar19.tar.gz .
After that I altered the gap.cmd (that includes date about gaps location and such things) and opened sage.
Here I tried to teach it the location of gap3 by using the line
gap3 = Gap3(command='/usr/user/.sage/gap3-jm/bin/gap3.cmd')
If I run the gap.cmd by itsself I get the usual gap3 opening screen, but Sage somehow refuses to let me calculate stuff with it. I tried stuff like gap3('1+1') or Gap3('1+1'), but it didnt work.
So I didn´t do that much until now and so I am not able to see where it could have went wrong.Mon, 06 May 2019 23:18:59 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/46418/chevie-on-windows/?comment=46469#post-id-46469Comment by Iguananaut for <p>Hello,</p>

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/46418/chevie-on-windows/?comment=46474#post-id-46474@Erratis Respectfully, that doesn't really add anything that wasn't already in your question. I meant the *exact* steps. Like, line by line, the commands you ran at the command line (not to mention how you "altered gap.cmd"). Otherwise I'm not sure I can easily track down the issue. When you say "it didn't work" what happens that you didn't expect?Tue, 07 May 2019 18:58:41 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/46418/chevie-on-windows/?comment=46474#post-id-46474Comment by Iguananaut for <p>Hello,</p>

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/46418/chevie-on-windows/?comment=46475#post-id-46475Actually, belay that. I tried to get it to work myself and it turns out this will be non-trivial; perhaps not worth the difficulty.Tue, 07 May 2019 19:34:06 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/46418/chevie-on-windows/?comment=46475#post-id-46475Comment by Erratis for <p>Hello,</p>

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/46418/chevie-on-windows/?comment=46476#post-id-46476I will take away from this that I just shouldn´t try making it work as an amateur.
I will just go ahead and install Linux then, because I have a glimmer of hope left
that it might work there.
Thank you for your efforts!Wed, 08 May 2019 07:13:36 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/46418/chevie-on-windows/?comment=46476#post-id-46476Comment by slelievre for <p>Hello,</p>

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/46418/chevie-on-windows/?comment=46479#post-id-46479@Erratis -- installing Linux is always a good idea. Note that you can try it out with Sage Debian Live which ships a Debian installation (bootable from a usb drive) with lots of free software including a very complete Sage installation.Thu, 09 May 2019 09:44:36 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/46418/chevie-on-windows/?comment=46479#post-id-46479Comment by Iguananaut for <p>Hello,</p>

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/46418/chevie-on-windows/?comment=46480#post-id-46480@Erratis if you want to keep working on Windows you don't necessarily need a full Linux installation. You can also run Sage on Windows using Docker, and one of the [sagemath Docker images](https://hub.docker.com/r/sagemath/sagemath). There *is* an "experimental" Sage SPKG for gap3 already which can be installed with `sage -i gap3` and that should give it to you out of the box. Unfortunately that doesn't work yet on Windows either, but it might work on Linux (though optional package installation in Docker images is [currently broken](https://trac.sagemath.org/ticket/27677) unless you use the [sagemath/sagemath-dev](https://hub.docker.com/r/sagemath/sagemath-dev) image.Thu, 09 May 2019 16:38:03 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/46418/chevie-on-windows/?comment=46480#post-id-46480Comment by Iguananaut for <p>Hello,</p>

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/46418/chevie-on-windows/?comment=46481#post-id-46481Meanwhile I could see if I can get the gap3 SPKG working on Cygwin, but no promises.Thu, 09 May 2019 16:38:22 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/46418/chevie-on-windows/?comment=46481#post-id-46481Comment by slelievre for <p>Hello,</p>

https://ask.sagemath.org/question/46418/chevie-on-windows/?comment=46494#post-id-46494Also if you want to keep working on Windows but can upgrade to Windows 10, then you can use the "Windows Subsystem for Linux" which lets you run Linux "inside Windows".Sun, 12 May 2019 13:05:36 +0200https://ask.sagemath.org/question/46418/chevie-on-windows/?comment=46494#post-id-46494
