Re: Compiling a GTK application on windows

no, gtk on windows doesn't suck, but at the same time, isn't issued by microsoft either, thus different (wrt IDE's), requiring some "by-hand" work.

i have a rather large project, designed under linux, also cross-compiled into windows binaries.  i've gone down both roads of compiling directly under windows (cygwin), and now simply cross-compiling on LINUX, even going so far as to create the install .exe on LINUX.

both solutions work, and, as far as i'm concerned, it works great (when the "by-hand" setup is not regarded as a hindrance).  maybe it doesn't work for you, or the way you'd like, but then almost the entirety of MS output falls into that category for me.

This attitude against windows is the reason why i only can recommend
to stay away from GTK on windows. It sucks.

By the way i use an editor and hand written non autotools makefiles
in my windows projects.
