2.3 Microsoft Windows

Users of the Microsoft Windows operating system can install the self-extracting Asymptote executable asymptote-x.xx-setup.exe, where x.xx denotes the latest version.

A working TeX implementation (we recommend https://www.tug.org/texlive or http://www.miktex.org) will be required to typeset labels. You will also need to install GPL Ghostscript version 9.14 or later from http://downloads.ghostscript.com/public.

To view PostScript output, you can install the program gsview available from http://www.cs.wisc.edu/~ghost/gsview/.

The ImageMagick package from http://www.imagemagick.org/script/binary-releases.php

is required to support output formats other than EPS, PDF, SVG, and PNG (see convert). The Python 2 interpreter from http://www.python.org is only required if you wish to try out the graphical user interface (see GUI).

Example code will be installed by default in the examples subdirectory of the installation directory (by default, C:\Program Files\Asymptote).
