geothokar is on a distinguished road

I am new to KIVA and never done fortran source code compilations or programming. Can someone here help me with how to compile the KIVA4 source codes to obtain the .exe file?

I have Cygwin installed on my PC (Windows 7). I think I can use g95 Fortran in cygwin for compiling.

I have the Makefile file in the software package. It's written for ifort, which I change to g95. Would that be enough modification for compiling using cygwin?

Can I simply compile Makefile and obtain the KIVA.exe file? (I tried it several times, I got KIVA.exe files, but fails to run either from Windows or from cygwin command prompt, error comes up saying,

At line 31 of file ./kiva3d/begin.f file: "otape9"
Traceback: not available, compile with -ftrace=frame or -ftrace=full
Fortran runtime error: The system cannot find the file specified.

After repeated errors from compiling in cygwin, I tried to compile the individual source codes using MS Visual Studio, then the compilation breaks showing combust.i file is missing.

Is there a procedure for compiling these souce codes to get the exe file?

Any help is much appreciated
