The 32 bit version of Open Dylan IDE does NOT work on 64 bit Windows prior to Windows 8. There is no workaround at this time, unfortunately. We hope to resolve this in an upcoming release.
However, the command line tools should work as the problem is with interaction between threads, GC and WoW64.

All of our source code is available under an open source license in the "dylan-lang" organization on GitHub.
For installation, double-click on the installer, and follow instructions. You need to have either the PellesC linker or the linker of VC++ 6.0, 7.0 or the current .NET platform SDK installed. PellesC is the best option.
The README file inside the tarball describes installation and basic usage. The easiest way is extracting the tarball in /opt. The Linux platform should have gcc installed, in order to allow linking. Note that these versions only have a command-line compiler and no IDE.
64 bit Linux requires that the Boehm GC is installed (For example, apt-get install libgc on Ubuntu).
