If you can deal with a little bit of command line entry, you could start now. I am not a programmer. I can barely read c++ with a manual handy to tell me what it all means. I was able to get the last test two test nets up and running on windows without too many issues.
The readme is a little sparse on some of the details, and the microsoft visual studio is a little confusing for about the first 30 minutes you use it.
Seriously though. If I can figure it out, anyone can. If you run into any issues post them, and we will try to help you through them.
