How to install APE?

Hello,

Hope i am putting my question in the right category.

I found this link through google,
http://www.ape-project.org/wiki/index.php/Setup

downloaded the APE server and extracted in C:\ - I am using windows XP.

What is the next step i should do to install and run it?

The documentation does not say anything more than extracting the rar file.

Thanks
Shivam

This software doesn’t run on Windows, and it isn’t really installed, you have to compile it from source code – unless you use one of the OS where there’s a precompiled package available.

Requirements

A Linux (with a kernel 2.6.16+) or MacOS X 10.3 computer, or a Windows computer with VirtualBox.

VirtualBox is virtualization software that lets you run another operating system within your host operating system. They’re telling you that if you want to try this in Windows, you have to run Linux in a VM, because you can’t run it in Windows itself.

Thanks :):):):).
