1) You need a visual studio program (vs2019 for v4/v10)

-VS2019 Community (install just the "Desktop Development C++" in https://i.imgur.com/HQVo77a.png with the latest Windows SDK 10)

https://www.visualstudio.com/downloads/


2) A git client

- GitHub Desktop
https://desktop.github.com/

- Git-SCM (alternatively - default toolchain)
https://git-scm.com/download/win


3) You have to decide if you wanna compile the files in a remote server, or in a vm in your pc

- Virtual Box
https://www.virtualbox.org/

NOTE: On my gdrive, you can download the already setup VMs.


4) You should also download AnyDesk (better than teamviewer)

https://anydesk.com


5) You can download OBS so that you can record the whole session

- OBS (to record the teamviewer session)
https://obsproject.com/

If you have problems with OBS, you can install an alternative like CamStudio
