Visual Studio 2013 runs PyFR

Hi Peter and Freddie,
Good news: I wanted to step through your PyFR User Guide demos, but having never touched Python, was not sure how to proceed. Only experience is with Visual Studio/C++ on Win64.

Then I bumped into Microsoft’s Python Tools for Visual Studio (Microsoft PTVS), switched PyFR to develop mode (python develop), loaded the PyFR directory structure as a VS project, and was able to step though the entire execution of both demos (2d Couette flow and Euler Vortex). For fun, I then tried partitioning with metis, and mpiexec -n 2 pyfr run… and all went well (4 x vanilla GK110 Titans under the bonnet).

thanks for the unexpected Christmas present!
