Windows Installation

What follows is a detailed step-by-step guide to install all Azul3D dependencies on a Windows (386/amd64) platform. For other platforms please see the installation page.

Install Go

Install the latest version of Go from here.

Note: Azul3D requires at least Go version 1.3

Set the environment variable GOPATH, for example to C:\Users\joe\Desktop\godev.

Install Git

Install git (use default installation options) from here.

Add git to the PATH environment variable:

  • 32-bit: C:\Program Files\Git\bin
  • 64-bit: C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin

Install Chocolatey (package manager)

Install choco by running this inside an administrative command prompt:

@powershell -NoProfile -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -Command "iex ((new-object net.webclient).DownloadString(''))" && SET PATH=%PATH%;%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\chocolatey\bin

Install Git LFS

Install Git LFS or else you will be missing critical files. To install it run:

choco install git-lfs.install
git lfs install

Install MinGW

We highly reccomend using TDM GCC -- installation is very simple, just download the installer and use the default options:

Due to a bug in Go you will need specifically either:

  • Go v1.4 or greater.
  • GCC v4.8.1 or earlier.

Install Azul3D

At this point, you’ve successfully installed the dependencies!

Follow the rest of the instructions on the installation page.
