If you want to run the package on windows, you can use the CERN Virtual Machines, which allow you to run Scientific Linux on any operating system.

At the CERN open data portal http://opendata.cern.ch/VM/ALICE

you can find full instructions on the whole procedure that you need to follow:

  1. Installation of Virtual Box
  2. Creation of a Virtual Machine
  3. Configuration of a Virtual Machine
