Preparing Windows build environment

To start developing PyWavelets code on Windows you will have to install a C compiler and prepare the build environment. PyWavelets can be built with all commonly used compilers on Windows (MSVC, Clang-cl, MinGW-w64, Intel C compilers). PyWavelets’ own CI jobs use MSVC; the appveyor.yml configuration file may be a helpful reference if you want to use MSVC locally.

After completing these steps continue with Installing build dependencies.
