Required tools:

  • msysgit
  • cygwin
    • Note: on windows with UAC enabled, it may fail to run setup.exe after downloading packages. You'll have to run it manually.
    • After installing, open a cygwin shell (cygwin.bat) and execute
      perl -e "use Switch;"
    • If you don't get an error, cygwin is configured properly. Otherwise, execute the following:
      • curl -L http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/R/RG/RGARCIA/Switch-2.16.tar.gz -o Switch-2.16.tar.gz
      • tar -xzf Switch-2.16.tar.gz
      • cd Switch-2.16
      • perl Makefile.PL && make && make install
  • Microsoft Visual C++ and components
  • SWIG
    • You'll have to put this on your
      PATH
      manually.
  • An SVN client (Tortoise, Slik, CollabNet)
    • Make sure the executing
      svn
      in your cmd.exe shell succeeds. If not, you'll have to add your client's
      bin
      directory to your
      PATH
      manually.
  • Python 2.6.*
    • As of 2012-Jul-25, the latest binary release is 2.6.6
    • Also unpack the source distribution on top of your install directory. This will make the headers (*.h) and object files (*.lib) for components that will be compiled.
  • setuptools
  • bakefile
  • pip - install with
    c:\Python26\Scripts\easy_install pip
  • virtualenv - install with
    c:\Python26\Scripts\pip install virtualenv
