There is no “Project Chrono” program. Chrono is a set of middleware libraries and as such the user must write a main program which makes calls into whatever Chrono library you need to use. The various demos distributed with Chrono are short examples of such main programs.
Upon a successful configuration and build of Chrono, you should be able to run any of the generated demos by simply typing something like:
How are you trying to run these demos? Please provide more information about your setup (OS, etc).

The demo I suggested does not have any visualization. There are others that do.
There are two modules in Chrono for run-time visualization, one based on Irrlicht, the other on OpenGL (with the latter having fewer features as it is mostly used for debugging larger scale granular simulations). To have access to those (and generate corresponding demos), you must enable the module at configuration time (and provide its dependencies, as needed). Based on your previous messages, it looks like you did enable the Chrono::Irrlicht module. Were you able to successfully build Chrono with that? If so, you will also see a bunch of demos with names like “demo_IRR_***”. Any of those will have run-time visualization.

I’m not sure what you mean by “barebone Chrono”. As I said, there is no GUI. Chrono is a set of middleware libraries. To model and simulate anything with it, you (as the user) must write the main program (the equivalent of any of the demos we provide as illustration).
