I want to install ROOT on Windows. I already searched the web for installation instructions and found Bertrand Bellenot’s posts ont the forum with the following link : https://root.cern.ch/content/release-53436.
If I’m not mistaken, I need to install Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 if I want to install the exe version of ROOT Release 5.34.36 compiled for VS2013.
So here is my question : since I’ve never had any business with Visual Studio before (I was running ROOT on linux machine), I am a little confused about what version of Studio I should get. Does it work with any of the versions available here : https://www.visualstudio.com/vs/older-downloads/ ? I mean Complete, Professionnal, Ultimate etc…
I also found something called Visual Studio 2013 VC++ Redistributable so I wonder if I should install that also ?
If anyone can help me clear this up, I would really appreciate it !
