    Military base.
    anyone knows pycrypto install Windows? I have this installed on ubuntu, but it is a little uncomfortable to be switching between systems to work.

    When I try to compile the installer gives me error saying something like missing or drm ...

    Just install what wiki mentioned, open devkitPro shell (MSys), using "CD" command to locate file position, and type "make".

    Its really kind of hit and miss as to whether or not you can compile something. A lot of files just need ctrulib, but most require you to have some extra libraries.

    Hold shift and right click on the folder of the source you want to compile. Click "open command window here", Then type "make".

    Type it in shell.
    cd fileposition/fileposition/fileposition...
    Something like this.

    Devkitpro has a Automated-Installer. It will handle packages for you.

    I believe he is referring to the perl script which installs devkitpro for you. All the information you need is in the tutorial I linked for you previously. Try following that guide, and if you get stuck come back with a more specific question.

    He could also be referring to the automated install wizard on Windows. Either way though, devkitPro has an easy setup for all 3 major desktop/laptop OSes.

    Oh I didn't know it had a Windows graphical installer. That's even easier then!

    So I downloaded the devkitProUpdater 1.6.0.exe. Is that the right one? (I'm using Windows)

    Yes that looks like the most recent version. If it works the same as the perl script for Linux/OS X, it downloads the latest version of devkitPro anyway.

    Even if it isn't, the updater/installer will always offer to update itself anyway on Windows, if I remember correctly.

    So after I downloaded it, it went through the setup and stuff. Now in the devkitpro folder, theres a bunch of folders and files, where do I go?
