Joel we are really complicating things with mingw when all one would need to do is install visual studio and run nmake from its command line and you are good to go.
Because MinGW is an Open Source compiler and Visual Studio is a closed source, commercial compiler which has a free limited version. Using Visual Studio is a courtesy (which could stop at any time). Using an Open Source tool to build an Open Source program makes ALL sense. (unfortunately Jan Holesovsky aka Kendy from Suse, who set up and maintains the MinGW tinderbox seems to have his hands full with other stuff) See these old topics about MinGW http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/Compiling-in-Windows-td1792684.html and http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/MinGW-master-build-td3400162.html -- View this message in context: http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/NMake-vs-MinGW-tp4051639p4051704.html Sent from the Discuss mailing list archive at Nabble.com. -- Unsubscribe instructions: E-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org Problems? http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/mailing-lists/how-to-unsubscribe/ Posting guidelines + more: http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Netiquette List archive: http://listarchives.documentfoundation.org/www/discuss/ All messages sent to this list will be publicly archived and cannot be deleted
