I have downloaded Paraview on Windows but cannot find documentation as to how to install and run it. Help would be appreciated
Like any other software on windows.
- Download the installer from here : https://www.paraview.org/paraview-downloads/download.php?submit=Download&version=v5.8&type=binary&os=Windows&downloadFile=ParaView-5.8.0-Windows-Python3.7-msvc2015-64bit.exe
- Double click on it and install ParaView
- Run ParaView from the start menu
Many thanks for your prompt reply, downloaded and installed it and all seemed to complete without error, however when I came to run it I got a VCOMP140.DLL is missing error message. From searching Google it seems it is a system error and I will have to get some assistance tomorrow to fix it. I am in Adelaide South Australia so it will have to wait for tomorrow. But thanks for your assistance.
It seems that you don’t have the redistributable packages.
You can download it here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48145
It’s being addressed here: https://gitlab.kitware.com/paraview/common-superbuild/merge_requests/347
