  • The Windows installer includes OpenRTM-aist (DLL,header,samples,commands), omniORB-4.1.4, and RTSystemEditor (RCP version). Installing omniORB and the Eclipse tools separately is not necessary.
  • OpenRTM-aist (and ACE, omniORB, etc) built for Visual Studio 2005 cannot be used with Visual Studio 2008. Download and install the correct package for your development environment
  • The redistributable package contains the Visual Studio runtime libraries. It should be installed on systems where Visual Studio (VC++) is not installed in order to run RT-Components.

You can install rpm/deb packages with apt-get and yum from OpenRTM-aist's repository.
