Hi there,

I am trying to install ROS 2 Foxy on Windows following this guide:

When trying to call the local_setup file (call C:\dev\ros2_foxy\local_setup.bat) according to "Enviroment setup" I get the following error:

connext_cmake_module] Warning: The location at which Connext was found when the workspace was built [[C:\Program Files\rti_connext_dds-5.3.1]] does not point to a valid directory, and the NDDSHOME environment variable has not been set. Support for Connext will not be available.

I did not download Connext as the guide and other references mention that Fast RTPS is the standard? Does Foxy only work with connext?

Environment variable FASTRTPSHOME was set on install of fast rtps and I manually set RMW_IMPLEMENTATION to rmw_fastrtps_cpp but this doesnt help.
