How does it work?

However, it is important to keep in mind there are some requirements before starting the installation on Windows.


If you wanna use efficiently Ritchie on Windows, our recommendation is to install the following programs:

  • Powershell

  • Cygwin

Cygwin Configurations : - You need to install the make package inside Cygwin, as suggested here. - You'll also have to configure the file /etc/nsswitch.conf inside the folder (/ProgramFiles) and add this non commented line:db_home: /%H

Use Ritchie on Windows

The PATH to use Ritchie on Windows IS NOT configured when you download it. As long as it hasn't been configured, the user will have to go inside the folder where the rit.exe file has been downloaded to execute Ritchie through this file. Example : rit.exe init
