# Install WAX-CDT
The GitHub WAX-CDT Repository downloads to the wax-cdt directory. The download and build process can take several minutes to several hours, depending on your Internet connection, operating system, and hardware specifications.
To download the WAX-CDT Source Code Repository, paste the following into the command line:
git clone --recursive https://github.com/worldwide-asset-exchange/wax-cdt.git
# Build WAX-CDT
If you're using our Docker images, you do not need to complete these steps.
To build WAX-CDT from source, you can use the following steps. If you have a previous version installed, you'll need to uninstall it first. Refer to Uninstall WAX-CDT for more information.
Important: Building from source is not supported. If you encounter an issue with the build, you can use our Docker Images instead (recommended).
- Change your directory to wax-cdt.
- Run the build script.
- Run the install script.
