Some steps must be followed before MPI.NET aplications can be executed or assembled. We strongly recomend that you read the content of the following site http://www.osl.iu.edu/research/mpi.net/software/ before you start.

The firt step is the installation of the .Net plataform. It can be installed by 2 different ways: you can get the .Net SDK in Microsoft's website at http://www.microsoft.com/net/ or you can get it integrated with Microsoft Visual Studio that is the IDE we are using to develop this project.. There is a free version of MS Visual Studio called Visual Studio Express and it can be downloaded at http://www.microsoft.com/express/. We are using the C# version. After the .Net plataform is installed, C# aplications can be compiled and executed in the computer.

The second step is to install a MPI distribution. The distribution we are using is the Microsoft Compute Cluster Pack SDK that can be downloaded from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=d8462378-2f68-409d-9cb3-02312bc23bfd&displaylang=en. After this you should be able to compile and run MPI -C and MPI-C++ aplications on the computer.

The third and last step is to download and install Indiana University MPI.NET binding. It can be downloaded from http://www.osl.iu.edu/research/mpi.net/files/0.6.0/MPI.NET%20SDK.msi. After this you can run and compile MPI.NET aplications.

Now we strongly recommend that you read the tutorial at http://www.osl.iu.edu/research/mpi.net/documentation/tutorial/index.php.
