4 Release Notes and Installation Guide for Windows

This chapter assumes that the environment variable PATH includes %SP_PATH%\bin, where SP_PATH points to the SICStus installation directory (typically C:\Program Files\SICStus Prolog VC10 3.12.11. Here, %SP_PATH% is just a place-holder; you usually do not need to set the environment variable SP_PATH, but see CPL Notes. For example:

     C:\> set PATH=C:\Program Files\SICStus Prolog VC10 3.12.11\bin;%PATH%

To use splfr and spld, you must also include Microsoft Visual Studio (or at least its C compiler and linker). The easiest way is to run vcvars32.bat from the Visual Studio 6 distribution, or the vcvarsall.bat from the Visual Studio 2010 distribution.

To use the respective library modules, you must also include the paths to Tcl/Tk (see Tcl/Tk Notes), Java (see Getting Started), and Berkeley DB (see Berkeley DB Notes).
