Compiling lua-wow

I honestly have no clue how compiling works, for anything. All of my code experience has been within other environments, such as JavaScript and Lua. I'm trying to get the most recent version of lua-wow (2013) but there's no .exe files. The .exe files for 2008 are available though, but I would like to use the newer version.

I installed Visual Studio 2017 and tried my best to look for instructions, including reading the install instructions included with lua-wow and Microsoft's guides, but I keep getting errors or things I don't understand in the Visual Studio cmd window, like nmake trying to do something within its own install location even though I'm cd'd to lua-wow's folder, as well as some error in line 47? of Makefile, but that line is blank.

Could anyone point me in the right direction or give me more specific directions than lua-wow's install.txt? I just need the interpreter to use in the FindGlobals script for NotePad++, which I already have working with the 2008 version.

This might not be much help, but I use this: http://www.wowinterface.com/download...OTANADDON.html (Old, but works.)

Other than that, there is this: http://lua-users.org/wiki/BuildingLu...dowsForNewbies
