Ultimate++ Windows Installation
Table of contents
Windows release a simple archive .7z archive. Unpack to directory of your preference, then just run theide.exe (or theide32.exe if you have 32-bit windows). U++ does not write anything to registry or outside its directory.
U++ comes in two variants:
upp-mingw contains mingw64 compiler system for out of the box operation
upp-win comes without compiler/SDK,
Both variants are able (on first install, when installation is moved or on demand - menu Setup/Instant setup) to detect and use Miscrosoft Windows SDK and C++ compiler, either 2017 or 2015 version. The most convenient way is to install Build Tools for Visual Studio 2019. (in Tools for Visual Studio 2019 subsection, in the installer, select C++ build tools, default options for C++ build tools are OK).
The list of common problems related to Windows installation:
Compilation with MinGW causes "There were errors" error message.
To solve this problem please make sure your upp installation path doesn't posses any special characters like diacritical marks (á, ą etc.). To avoid problems, we highly recommended to keep MinGW installation in relatively simple location (ASCII path) like "C:\Prototable\upp".
