On Windows, you'll need a program like WinRar (shareware) or 7-zip (open source freeware) to extract it.
This file is a trimmed down version of the VMware virtual image that I am using for development. It has *many* libraries already compiled and installed. It also has vncserver setup and an iLiad scratchbox area for testing apps.
VNC Server password: password
How to use:
Download VMWare Player or Server: http://www.vmware.com/download/player/
Install player, and open virtual machine. It should start and run without problems. I reccmend you connect to the machine through putty on windows, since it is a better interface for console development.
To change between development and testing environments, type sb-menu at the prompt, and then choose select. You will want to select iliad-dev for compiling applications, and iliad-irex for testing.
