Hi Jean-Marc,

Actually, there's a free version of MS Visual Studio, called Visual Studio
Express, which you can get here:


It does depend on which matrix solver you want to use, for many of them
you'll need a Fortran compiler as well.  If you use Pardiso, you'll get a
header file and a dll from their website and you should be OK.

Alternatively, you can use MinGW or Cygwin, which provide the GNU
compilers under Win32.



Hope this helps,
