Re: [Gimp-developer] any way to compile GIMP-git on windows?

for windows 64, most libraries can be found at:

For windows 32, replace the 64 in the url by 32, and there are the 32bit libraries.
Be sure to get the binary and the devel package.
I suggest 7zip for extracting.

Good luck!
And have a very close look at the code. Good windows programmers are wanted :-)

Hi, all
I am a win7 64 bits user. So I installed
Mingw64(, which can yield
both 32 and 64 bits applications for windows.

I can compile gimp-2.8.14 32bit without problem. But when I try to
compile the GIMP source from git, the configure says "equested
'harfbuzz >= 0.9.19' but version of harfbuzz is 0.9.16"

Then I try to compile
harfbuzz( from the git
source. But the required colm (
can't be compiled successful with mingw64
  $ ./configure
  $ make -j8 ENABLE_OPTIMIZED=1
  make[2]: *** No rule to make target `bootstrap1', needed by `parse2.c'.  Stop.

Is there any hit to compile GIMP-git (or harfbuzz) on windows  for windows?
If you are user, not developer, may I interest you in trying our
nightly builds? :)
