Windows 0.17 Daily Build

Postby rjpeek » Tue Apr 04, 2017 2:19 am

Where can I find 0.17 daily build for windows? A friend wants me to teach him on a laptop running Windows (which version I don't know yet). I followed the links but got a 404 response. I might dual boot his laptop with Ubuntu because that is what I'm running.

On the FreeCAD files page.
  • Make sure to choose the correct Archive to download (32 or 64 bit)
  • the archive is a packed 7z-archive so make sure 7 Zip ist installed or download it as portable version. Windows internal Zip won't do ...
  • since the windows computer might not have seen a FreeCAD Installation before, make sure to install "Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2013"
  • maybe you have some extra preferences set (Navigation styles ..) either copy user.cfg and system.cfg from your FreeCAD-directory to
    his (usually c:\Your_windows_Login_user_name\appdata\roaming\FreeCAD - CAREFUL, it's a hidden directory)
