Install on Windows (32 bit)

Python 3.6 or later

From the Python website download Python 3.7.2 on Windows (32 bit). Default settings are fine during the install although I recommend users also select “Add Python 3.7 to PATH” which is unticked by default.

PyCharm Edu 2018.3 or later

Download and install PyCharm Edu v2019.1.1 on Windows.

Minetest 5.0

  1. Download Minetest 5.0 for Windows 32 bit.
  2. Extract the zip file into your Documents directory so you have a folder Documents\minetest-5.0.1-win32.
  3. In File Explorer right-click on Documents\minetest-5.0.1-win32\bin\minetest.exe and select “Send to > Desktop (Create shortcut)”.

Now you can run Minetest by double-clicking the Minetest icon on your desktop.


The next step is to set up PyCharm Edu.
