Install on Windows


#1

It has been a particular bugbear of mine that the LKBInstallation page should erroneously say that there is a way to install the LKB on Windows. I have been trying to document how to do this; the most recent build of the LKB for Windows I have found is in /builds/2004-09-17, and running a bash install on Cygwin with that version appears to get the necessary files, but it is unwilling to load the LKB.

Does anyone know if the command to launch the LKB has changed since 2004 or if there was a separate command to run it in Cygwin?

I had successfully used the Docker approach using the Dockerfile provided from Padro with few adaptations. See http://moin.delph-in.net/LkbMacintosh. I haven’t tried it on Windows only on a Mac, but I suspect it should work too.
