Installing Geant4 with Visual Studio on Windows

As of version 9.5, Geant4 uses CMake and Visual Studio to build and install on Windows platforms.

The slideshow below shows the basic sequence of steps needed to run CMake and Visual Studio to produce an install of Geant4. Windows 7, CMake 2.8.4 and Visual Studio 2010 Express were used, so you may need to adjust the specifics of each step if you use Windows XP and/or a different edition of Visual Studio.

Any questions on, or problems with, this walkthrough should be posted to Geant4's Installation and Configuration Forum.
