A friend of mine installed gfortran under W8 and got a run
time error in a program where it tries to open a file. The
program runs OK under W7 and Linux.

Has anyone here had similar problems with Windows 8?

My friend's car won't start. Can anybody help?

Really!! What is the error? File not found? Check directory,
check path.

Gfortran Ver 5.x has a file opening error, which may be related to this question.
What version did your friend install ?
So the answer could be install a different version ! (for a variety of possibilities)

I wasn't actually asking for a solution, just whether others
have had this problem with W8.

You haven't described the problem.

There is some possibility that others could find the same problem.

It isn't so easy, though, to run a program on the two systems with exactly the same configuration.

A common problem with failure in file open is a program trying to
use the not open file. A misspelled file name could be enough.

Is there any message that could help? Or a generic problem
like segfault?
