A collaborator of mine just tried to install Nifty on a Windows machine in an Anaconda environment and had the problem that the symlink from
src was apparently breaking the setup. Once she removed it and renamed
nifty7, the setup worked.
I have not checked if this is the general behavior under Windows or if it is just her setup, but assume it is the former.
Has anybody else experience with this and can weigh in?
What was the rationale behind changing the source location and introducing the symlink?
