You can choose one ANSI C Compiler for building Y&Y TeX:
  1. MSVC (tested Visual Studio 2012/2013)

yandy – TUG re­lease of Y and Y’s TeX dis­tri­bu­tion

Y&Y were a small TeX dis­trib­u­tor, whose Win­dows TeX sys­tem was highly thought of. The busi­ness ceased trad­ing 2003, and TUG was granted the right to dis­tribute it; this ver­sion has been ad­justed in a small way, and can run un­der Win­dows 7 & 8 (which were a fair time in the fu­ture when TUG was granted its rights).

The pro­gram can only pro­duce DVI files; users should ac­quire a DVI reader else­where.
