These notes require technical knowledge of using developer or build tools to compile software from source code. FreeSSM can use the open source version of QuickTime (QT) framework so you'll need a user account setup over at https://qt.io. These notes are based on the GitHub install notes with a couple of screenshots thrown in. Note that we compile 32-bit for compatibility with Tactrix OpenPort which doesn't have 64-bit drivers.
FreeSSM is available open source thanks to Comer352L who created and shared this project on GitHub @ https://github.com/Comer352L/FreeSSM.
Remember to run the following on a fresh OS
sudo apt-get install build-essential
Now follow these instructions.
These steps have been tested against the open source edition of QT 5.8 and 5.9 on 64-bit Windows 10. Ensure the version number in the paths referenced below is correct for your computer. If you don't have QT installed already use 5.9. The screenshots below don't show every step of the process and probably describe some QT components that may not be necessary but hey this works.
