Is there no way to fix this bug for Windows?
Also, the detect.cores() thing is wrong in that it picks up Intel’s reporting of their “hyperthreading” feature as if it’s another core. So my four-core i7 reports 8 cores, even though there are truly only four physical cores. Running on about 5 cores is ideal for me when only running a Stan model (or build process, which is where I usually set cores). But it’ll depend on what else is going on with the machine.
As much as we’d like to put all the gotchas in a “prominent” position in the doc, we don’t have that many prominent positions. Do we say “dont’ install with a space on windows” or “debug with one core”?
The problem with “recommend prominently” is that every time somone runs into a problem they ask us to put the solution at the “top of the web page”. Alas, there’s only one top of the doc.
