 //A caveat: We found the 32 bit Windows version of Haxe a lot more stable than the 64 bit. Once you install Haxe, it comes with a package manager called haxelib -- you would need to use that and install some additional libraries used by Haxe.

-By default, when TAD exports code -- it does it in such a way that it creates a "main function" and so you can directly make standalone applications that would work inside your computer. This main function does a simple output: It traces out the areas of two objects.  You can modify the main function by carefully editing the file //tadextra.haxe.txt// which is in the bin folder of the TAD installation.+By default, when TAD exports code -- it does it in such a way that it creates a "main function" and so you can directly make standalone applications that would work inside your computer.

Without Microsoft Visual Studio Express (or the full version) only the C++ source code is generated. It is needed even for C# (CSharp) code.
  
 Note that the Haxe output need not have any "main()" routine. We happen to give one for demo purpose -- so that you know that TAD indeed can generate the final executable. But you can chose to ignore it./ In such a case you can export your TAD model to a //library//-- and not compile it into a standalone executable.  Note that the Haxe output need not have any "main()" routine.
