These files worked with me. To get the original release to 
compile, out the top of my head, I performed some changes to the 
original sources (all of these changes you don't need to do 
because they're in the files attached)

- run configure on Cygwin to get the config.h files
- manually change the config files (? Don't quite remember now)
- make some project files
- make few changes to sources (mostly #define directives)

So, I hope this helps,

Kind regards

PS I'm still trying to get these changes prepared as a proper 
patch to the libiconv project however I'm required to do 
development other things for the time being (oracle pl/sql and 
vba, yes live's a bitch and then you die)

The file README.woe32 in iconv 1.14 source says "MS Visual C/C++ 
with nmake is no longer supported."

When I made my binary, which is 1.9.2, it was supported. I don't 
have the source any longer, unfortunately, it was forgotten last 
time I renewed the hardware. But I don't remember having to 
modify it in any way, it provided a Makefile.msvc and compiled 
out of the box.

Perhaps you can grab the Makefile.msvc from an older version and 
use it as a starting point.

No thanks Patrick.  If necessary I'll write a 'nmake'

Igor Zlatkovic appears to have it figured out for his binaries 

bug I couldn't find instructions or build files there.

Possibly Lemm Thomas can post the project files he created 
back in 
July someplace.  I'd use them.

Searched for nearly an hour and dug in the release tree and I 
find any clear information on how to compile GNU 'libiconv' 
under Windows with Visual Studio 2008 and/or 2010.  Would 
like to 
build a native 'libxml2' that includes 'iconv', so this 
appears to be 
a prerequisite.  Need 64-bit.

Have no reservations about using CYGWIN for building so long 
as the 
'cl' compiler is used and no CYGWIN dependencies are present 
in the 

'nmake' is fine as well as is a VS project, though I dislike 
using the IDE for anything other than debugging if it can be 

Any help, links, etc. would be appreciated.
