Problem with SPAdes installation - no bin folder

I have been trying to download SPAdes for an important project I wanted to do, however, I have encountered a small problem while doing so. It appears that there is no 'bin' folder in my SPAdes installation file.

I have used 7-Zip as my main method of unpacking the file (As I am using Windows, I had to download the actual source code rather than a nice executable), and it came in the .tar.gz format, which I believe 7-Zip is rather good with.

A few pictures detailing my problems are shown below.

I hope I can get a little help on this matter. It is slightly time-sensitive, so I would really appreciate a little bit of assistance shortly. Thank you in advance!

As seen above, the first image is the command I used, the usual test command, the second is the file structure I got (Notice the absence of the 'bin' file), and the third is the error I received from running the spades.py --test command.

• I see that it supports Linux and MacOS. It appears you are using Windows. Is there a reason you believe that Windows is supported? See github.com/ablab/spades/issues/156 Nov 5 '18 at 5:04
• No, not at all. I just thought the source code would work on Windows, as there are options for Linux and MacOS downloadables. Nov 6 '18 at 12:56
• Well, sure, 7-Zip will unzip a tar.gz file, but it won't install software for you! Nov 6 '18 at 19:37
