Getting Started/Build/Windows/Building DBus

Jump to: navigation, search

First, be sure you have installed win32libs.

  • Download the latest winDBus sources (which are already patched) and extract them into place like C:\svn\windbus, or
  • Get the latest svn sources; in this case use
    svn co https://windbus.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/windbus/trunk windbus

Once you have the source code,

cd c:\svn\windbus
patch -p0 < DBus-win32.patch
cd ..
mkdir windbus-build
cd windbus-build
cmake -G "Visual Studio 8 2005" ..\windbus\cmake\

(use -G "MinGW Makefiles" for the mingw compiler)

msvc: dbus.sln solution file will be created. Build and install the Debug and Release builds with the IDE. You can switch between the Debug and Release configuration in the Build -> Configuration Manager menu.

msvc tip: to perform compilation and installation from the command line, type:

devenv /build Debug /project INSTALL dbus.sln
devenv /build Release /project INSTALL dbus.sln
msvc: then use
nmake
nmake install

(in the build directory)

mingw: then use
mingw32-make
mingw32-make install

(in the build directory)

Default target for the installation is %PROGRAMFILES%\dbus.
