Installing ROOT Builder

ROOT Builder is easy to install - but you do need some supporting software in order to get the ROOT sources and build it!


  • Get MSVC installed. The tool will build projects for VS2003, 2005, 2008, or 2010. 2005 and 2008 work the best right now. See the FAQ for more information. It should work with the free Express versions of Visaul Studio, but I have not tested this.
  • You can download source codes in a large tar ball from the ROOT site or you can check them out using the code management system called SVN. ROOT instructions for checking out their sorces via SVN can be found here.


Select the "Downloads" tab above and download and install the most recent release and you are ready to go!
