Building FlatCAM under Windows

I'd like to be able to build/run FlatCAM from source, preferrably under Windows 7, so I can look at a bug in reading a gerber I created using Eagle. Which Python do you use under Windows? Is there a build script for Windows? I didn't see it in my git clone.

Hi watsonrick, I use WinPython and the packages all come from binary installers. See http://flatcam.org/manual/installation.html#windows There is no build script for Windows. In my experience, Windows doesn't like scripts in general :-) You are welcome to contribute such to the project! Thanks, JP
