Installing on Windows 2000

Can ICE be installed on a Windows 2000 machine without
VC++?

Looked on download page, but all references to Windows
installation include VC++.

    Do you mean Ice for Java? Ice for C++ won't be useful w/o VC++...

    Marc,


    Thanks for the reply. Basically, we just want
    to install ICE binaries (Java & C++) on Windows 2000,
    but we do not have VC++ as a build environment.

    How do we do this without VC++?? Are people somehow
    required to have/use VC++ in order to install ICE on
    Windows platforms?

    I saw on the download page references to Unix binaries
    and then other references to Windows 2000 installation
    that seemed to require VC++.


    Thanks again,

    Brian

    Hi Brian,

    Visual C++ is required if you want to build your C++ applications on Windows 2000/XP, but it's not required if you simply want to run the Ice binaries or Ice for Java applications.

    Let us know if you encounter any problems.

    Take care,
    - Mark

    Thanks Mark,

    From looking at the ".msi" suffix of the download file,
    I thought this might be a file that had to be opened by
    Visual Studio, but obviously it was not.

    I downloaded the file, installed it, and things seem
    to be working fine now.

    Thanks again,

    Brian
