Re: GTK+/win32 documentation is out of date

Hey guys,

Just started taking my first steps in GTK+ on the windows platform and the journey has been problematic to say the least.
There is a lot of information on the web regarding GTK+ compilation on windows, but most (if not all) is for previous/discontinued versions.
There are also a lot of dead links. 

From talking to some devs that use GTK+, it appears that GTK+ is suppose to work on windows but not that many people can explain (in a quick and simple way) how to do it.

As I said I am taking my first steps with GTK+ and the help I get from the official page ( is to install msys2  and to follow an article on some blog. These are really not the things a new newcomer wants to read.

So if some of you knowledgeable people has a bit of time and patience, maybe we can create something better for all.

The wiki documentation building GTK+ on windows is out of date. I have a volunteer who will help document it if someone will spend the time with them on getting a win32 build up and running.

In the meanwhile, I need someone who will archive these pages.  We can't have documentation that go to dead links.  Either we have documentation or we don't.  Replace them with a wishlist or something.

In any case, I have someone who will put in the effort if you will put in the time so that we only have to do this once.

I'd like to see a thriving GTK+ win32 community here and we need to at least get some semblance of documentation as a start and then let the community take over.
