The script runs with R (>= 3.0.2).
R packages GenomicRanges and Rsamtools should be installed.

R is a multi-platform software, thus Ving works on any system where R can be installed.
Ving has been successfully tested on Ubuntu (>= 12.04.2), MacOSX 10.9 and Windows 7.
The provided documentation explains how to use Ving on a UNIX system.

Samtools should be up and running in order to create bam file indexes.
Index files must be in the same directory as bam files, with the default file name given by samtools.
Samtools are in the repositories of many distros. Go here for the freshest version:

You should now be able to start using real data!
