Slicer relies on several powerful support libraries. Building slicer has been significantly simplified in slicer 2.4 through the addition of the genlib script.

== Generic Instructions ==
For anonymous checkout and build on most Linux and Solaris configurations, you only need to follow steps below.
* You will need a recent cvs client; version 1.11.17 is known to work.
* You will need autoconf installed (except on Windows).
* Windows users need to see special download instructions below.
1) '''get an anonymous checkout'''
cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs.spl.harvard.edu:/projects/cvs/slicer login
and enter 'bwhspl' as the password and then
cvs -d :pserver:anonymous@cvs.spl.harvard.edu:/projects/cvs/slicer checkout -r release-2-4-patches slicer2
2) '''build the required support libraries (Tcl/Tk, GSL, VTK, ITK)'''
cd slicer2
<br />
3) '''build slicer'''
These steps will build the entire system for you, and you can use this as the basis for further development such as writing your own custom modules.
== Windows ==
Not all the support libraries are easy to build on windows, so you can download a set of precompiled binaries to build against. Insert the following substeps between steps 1) and 2).
1.a) download this file: [[Media:Slicer2.4-Lib-win32.zip|Slicer2.4-Lib-win32.zip]]
1.b) unzip the contents into your slicer2 directory. You will end up with the following libraries
Then continue with the build steps above.
This assumes you are building with the ''Microsoft Visual Studio .NET'' version of the development environment. If you need to use a different compiler, you need to change the GENERATOR variable in the 'slicer_variables.tcl' to 'Visual Studio 7.1'. Note that Slicer has not been fully tested on windows environments other than Microsoft Visual Studio .NET. If CMake complains that "cl" can not compile a simple test program, and you are running Visual Studio 7 .NET '''2003''', you need to change the GENERATOR variable to "Visual Studio 7 .NET 2003".
If you are using MS VisualStudio 6, you can download the building scripts: [[Media:Slicer2-MSVC6-InstallScripts.zip|Slicer2-MSVC6-InstallScripts.zip]]. (Note that some modules may not build due to library incompatibilities).
== Mac OSX ==
Follow the Generic install steps, but note the extra steps described here: [[Slicer:Patches_for_the_Mac|Slicer:Patches_for_the_Mac]]
== Troubleshooting ==
These steps are followed as part of the nightly build process for slicer as shown on the slicer dashboard [http://www.na-mic.org/Testing/Slicer [1]]. Compare the builds shown on the dashboard to the system you are trying to build on.
