Tutorial: Installing Tranalyzer on Windows

You can run Tranalyzer on your Windows Machine. In order to have the required build system and dependencies, it is necessary to activate the subsystem for Linux.

Install Subystem for Windows

Open Powershell as Administrator:

  • Open the Startmenu
  • Type powershell
  • Rightclick and choose Run as Administrator
  • Copy and paste the following command:

    $ Enable-WindowsOptionalFeature -Online -FeatureName Microsoft-Windows-Subsystem-Linux

Download distro (in this example: ubuntu 18.04)

Windows 10 Spring 2018 Update (or later) includes curl:

$ curl.exe -L -o ubuntu-1804.appx https://aka.ms/wsl-ubuntu-1804

Install distro

$ Add-AppxPackage .\ubuntu-1804.appx

After the install, pick bash from your start menu and follow the instructions for Linux to install the required libraries, and compile tranalyzer normally.
