metgrid.exe not found in WPS directory


New member
Hello, I have followed the steps for compiling WRF and WPS from the following website Compiling WRF
After compiling I was supposed to get the three executables geogrid.exe,ungrib.exe and metgrid.exe. I didnt getmetgrid.exe in my WPS directory.

I'm attaching a log.compile file for your reference (theres a netcdf library error) but i dont know how to resolve it.
Please do look into it. Thank you
It looks like you may have forgotten to attach the compile log. Can you attach that, as well as your configure.wps file, and your WRF compile log and configure.wrf file? Thanks!
But I have another problem hope you can help me with that.

While configuring WRF.

after running the ./configure I'm not getting configure.wrf

Here's what it shows

Settings listed above are written to configure.wrf.
If you wish to change settings, please edit that file.
If you wish to change the default options, edit the file:

Then re-run this configure script
