The tools below are required to use the system. These tools are designed to run under Linux, there is no Windows counterpart. However, Windows users can install and use them without a problem under the Cygwin environment. If you want to use the system under Windows, proceed by installing Cygwin from (http://cygwin.com/install.html). Notice that some tools require that non-standard packages are installed. Generally, installation guides point out what is necessary. Then, run setup.exe again and select the required packages to be installed and continue installing it.
Some notes for cygwin by Andreas Apostolakis:
Raul: When you install Cygwin, not all required packets are included in the standard installation. On that same page they inform you what you still have to select in order to be able to compile the tools:
wget http://apt-cyg.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/apt-cyg chmod +x apt-cyg mv apt-cyg /usr/local/bin/
apt-cyg install subversion
apt-cyg install ioperm apt-cyg install libusb-win32
cd libftdi-0.16 ./configure --prefix=/usr make make install
Now you are able to proceed with the installation as written in installation. Please, be sure to run the commands under the Cygwin environment.
