[Frama-c-discuss] How to install Frama-C 20.0 Calcium on Windows 7

The only way to install Frama-C on Windows 7 (that is, without the 
Windows Subsystem for Linux) is to use Cygwin.

In theory, the old installation instructions (e.g. at 
should still work, since the overall process did not change.

However, Frama-C 20.0 has more dependencies than the last Frama-C which 
was tested with Cygwin, so a few extra steps/packages may be necessary.

Frama-C requires a Unix-like environment for compilation and 
installation. Cygwin does provide that, but some opam packages have 
issues when compiling under Cygwin. The OCaml on Windows installer 
(mentioned in the above link) solves most issues, but a full 
installation of Frama-C 20.0 has not been tested with it.

Overall, it may be easier to run Frama-C from a Linux virtual machine 
than to install Cygwin and perform the required steps (e.g., install 
opam, depext, depext-cygwinports, etc).
