By the cygwin setup.exe select gsl library (http://www.gnu.org/software/gsl/): gsl , gsl-app , gsl-devel , gsl-doc

Now you can install OpenForis. Still in CygWin, run the following commands:
-
and install.  
+
<pre>
 +
wget http://foris.fao.org/static/geospatialtoolkit/releases/OpenForisToolkit.run
 +
chmod u+x OpenForisToolkit.run
 +
./OpenForisToolkit.run

</pre>

== Get Info, Update, Unistall Open Foris Toolkit ==
 +
#After the first installation, you can check the '''current version info''' with the command <pre>oft-info.bash</pre>
 +
#and '''update''' to the latest version using command <pre>sudo oft-update.bash</pre>
 +
#You can also '''uninstall''' all the tools. To do that, enter the command:<pre>sudo oft-uninstall.bash</pre>
 +
# In case you do not need further CygWin packages, you can delete the folder created at step 6

At this point you can install OpenForis:
 
-
<pre>wget http://foris.fao.org/static/geospatialtoolkit/
releases/OpenForisToolkit.run</pre>
 
-
<pre>chmod u+x OpenForisToolkit.run</pre>
