ROS on windows [closed]

Hi! I'm Korean college student.

I succeeded in communicating between Windows and Ubuntu using the example in hydro / win_ros. (windows - hydro, ubuntu - indigo) If I try to run the ROS code using visual studio2015, I get a link error. I also made various settings as shown on the wiki. Is there a way to solve it? Also, I would like to compile with open source code by adding the ROS code, would not it be a problem? thanks

win_ros has not been maintained for a very long time (and Hydro has been EOL for quite some time now too). Do you really need to use win_ros, or do you just need to be able to communicate with a ROS node graph from Windows? If the latter, you could look at rosbridge_suite, ..

.., rosserial_windows or perhaps even ROS on Win10/WSL (#q238646).

ROS 2 does support Windows! You write your windows code in ROS 2, then use the ros1_bridge on your Linux system to communicate with ROS 1.
