Sorry to resurrect a dead conversation, but I just wanted to point out to 
this and all other Windows users that the latest Windows 10 update includes 
the new Windows Subsystem for Linux, which makes installing and running 
ledger from source incredibly easy. After installing WSL as explained here 
<>, open a 
bash shell and follow the instructions for Ubuntu. Specifically:

$ sudo apt-get install git
$ git clone git://
$ cd ledger 
$ git checkout -b master origin/master  # Gives you the latest stable version - 
skip for the bleeding-edge version
$ ./acprep dependencies
$ ./acprep update
