Download (Windows)

Build from source (optional)

download Microsoft Visual C++ Compiler for Python 2.7

(you must use this compiler version for C runtime compatibility)

make a destination directory, such as C:\path\scite-with-python

save VCForPython27.msi to C:\path\scite-with-python

open an Administrator cmd prompt. One way to open this is to press Windows-X, go to the little menu that appears in the bottom right of the screen, and choose "Open Cmd Prompt (Admin)".

run cd C:\path\scite-with-python

run msiexec /i VCForPython27.msi ALLUSERS=1

then, open any cmd prompt that can run git,

run cd C:\path\scite-with-python

git clone

then, open any cmd prompt, and run

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft\Visual C++ for Python\9.0\vcvarsall.bat"

if there is no such file, try this instead

"C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft\Visual C++ for Python\9.0\vcvarsall.bat"

then unzip src/scite/scite/python/ into src/scite/scite/python/libs

(there should now be a file src/scite/scite/python/libs/python27.lib)

unzip src/scite/scite/bin/ into src/scite/scite/bin

(there should now be a file src/scite/scite/bin/python27.dll)

unzip src/scite/scite/bin/tools_internal/wincommondialog/ into src/scite/scite/bin/tools_internal/wincommondialog

(there should now be a file src/scite/scite/bin/tools_internal/wincommondialog/wincommondialog.exe)

then run these commands,

cd "C:\path\scite-with-python\scite-with-python\src\scite\scintilla\win32"

nmake -f scintilla.mak

cd "C:\path\scite-with-python\scite-with-python\src\scite\scite\win32"

nmake -f scite.mak

everything is now compiled, you can run


to start SciTE (it does require x86 Python 2.7 to be installed, though).
