I know this will sound like I haven’t done any “home work” before coming ask the gurus, but actually I have a bit.
I’m used to compile, link and install root under linux (since version 2 something), but lately I’m trying to move somethings to windows (Yeah, buuu away ).
I’ve managed to install the msi file (root 5.15.08) and work with that to build my programs. But I want to install now version 5.16.00 from sources.
How can I do that without cygwin, just from MSVC++8.0? Where can I find a dummies’ step-by-step guide to that?
I want to know basically how to create a project in MS Visual Studio to build the whole of root libs and bins and also how to configure my new projects to build with root.
I hope you can help!
Thanks in advance,
As previously said, to build ROOT from source on Windows, you need cygwin (or an equivalent tool, as, i.e. a subset of MSYS)
There is no plan (for the short term) to create a Visual Studio project…
