CMV and CPC files aren't editable.

XML files should be viewable with any text editor.

Compiling's a whole 'nother can of worms. The tools, dependencies, and compiler you need are all based on a variety of factors. To start, you'll have to explain what operating system you're working with. Windows, I presume?

Yeah, sorry. Can't help with that. I've only ever compiled for the Linux version of Terra Vitae, not Windows mainline. I'm pretty sure you need Visual Studio with a C++ compiler. Beyond that, I dunno.

Well, I don't want to sound dismissive, but... I'd strongly advise you research that on your own terms. There's quite a few choices and compromises you'll have to make when looking for, and installing, a Linux distro.
