I've been playing around with visual studio (2010) trying to build bitcoin from the source that is included in the win32 zip archive. I created a new makefile project and imported the makefile, acquired the boost, wxwidgets, and the openssl sources, and a few other files which were reported missing when I would try to build. I got as far as the build log reporting that it needed iostream.h, so I went and found a copy of that from libstdc++. Now, after trying to build with iostream.h located in my includes directory, I am getting loads of errors that look like this:

Code:

This has happened with 2 different versions of iostream.h (tried changing <iostream.h> to <iostream> in db.h also), and if I remove iostream.h from my includes directory it simply reports that file is missing and doesn't give hundreds of lines of errors like the above. I haven't modified any files at all, I am just trying to get the project to build in a windows environment right now...

I am sort of stuck here and haven't been able to figure out what the problem is. Admittedly I don't entirely know what I'm doing (I don't have a whole lot of experience with C++ in windows), but I was wondering if anyone has any ideas what my problem might be.

You should build using the nmake command from the visual studio command prompt as described in the information distributed with the source.

There's a makefile.mingw, and although I haven't tried yet, I'll probably take a stab at windows building for my cuda miner. Can I not use this?

Ok...so trying to build from the commandline with nmake is still giving me the same problems:

Any additional advice would be appreciated...  Undecided


I think that the C4430 error can be ignored by adding a #pragma warning(disable:4430) to headers.h, but the other ones appear to be more serious

It looks like the C2143 is sometimes caused by problems with #includes, but since I am just using the files that were distributed with the source...I would assume all are functional? Maybe it is something about using vs2010 that is causing the problems?

The lines it's tripping on:
Code:
ERROR extern map<string, string> mapAddressBook;
ERROR extern CCriticalSection cs_mapAddressBook;
ERROR extern vector<unsigned char> vchDefaultKey;
OK extern bool fClient;
OK extern int nBestHeight;


OK extern unsigned int nWalletDBUpdated;
ERROR extern DbEnv dbenv;

So it's acting like nothing is defined, not even map and vector.

Yet, db.h is included by headers.h (and only there, nowhere else) which includes vector, map, util.h and everything before db.h.

Is VC trying to use precompiled headers and screwing it up?  Could there be some leftover precompiled header files in your directory from previously failed attempts that it's finding and using?

There's an installer package now that makes it really easy to install MinGW.  Don't use the latest version 4.5.0, use a few versions back like 4.4.1 (1.908.0) or 1.812.0.  A setup program completely installs everything, it's not hard like it used to be.  I think the only thing I had to do was rename make*.exe something to make.exe.
http://tdm-gcc.tdragon.net/

Off topic, but: It would be nice if someone would hack on getting tcatm's 4-way 128-bit SSE2 code working on Windows.  There's something with MinGW's optimisation, I'm not sure but maybe a problem with 16-byte alignment on the stack, that makes it segfault.  With some fiddling, I was able to get his code to work in a test program, but not in Bitcoin itself for some reason.

I've given up for the time being with VC and have been having a bit more success with MinGW, I will report back if I decide to give VC a try in the future

My CMake version at http://bitbucket.org/dkaparis/bitcoin-cmake/ can build on windows using MSVC, both IDE project and command line nmake. You'll only need CMake.

(still given up with MSVC++ for now, just reformatted and don't want to go bloating up my system with visual studio and friends for now...)
This is my attempt to build the source that puddinpop has released... bitcoin-CUDA-svn153-src-gpl

I've made some changes to the makefile to reflect the version of boost that i'm using (1.44) and mingw 4.5 and also to support not-absolute-paths; here is what I'm working with at present:

So far, calling both 'mingw32-make -f makefile.mingw bitcoind.exe' from cmd.exe or 'make -f makefile.mingw bitcoind.exe' from the MinGW shell are giving me the same problems. It gets as far as the boost_program_options, and then exits with the following errors:

Code:

Kind of stuck here at the moment and any help would be appreciated (is it possible something failed when I was building boost?)  Smiley

I think you should ask eurekafag about it. He has successfully compiled the CUDA version for Linux. Smiley

You should include boost libraries via -l (lowcase L) option WITHOUT lib prefix. It's added automagically by linker I guess. For linux build I included:

 -Wl,-Bstatic \
   -l boost_system \
   -l boost_filesystem \
   -l boost_program_options \
   -l boost_thread \

...not mentioning db_cxx and some others.

 -Wl,-Bstatic \
   -l boost_system \
   -l boost_filesystem \
   -l boost_program_options \
   -l boost_thread \

...not mentioning db_cxx and some others.

(is a makefile for g++ with mingw going to be the same as one natively run on linux?)

The makefile for mingw is using -l and the included defaults in the original 0.3.12 makefile looked like:

Code:
LIBS= \
 -l libboost_system-mgw34-mt-d \
 -l libboost_filesystem-mgw34-mt-d \
 -l libboost_program_options-mgw34-mt-d \
 -l libboost_thread-mgw34-mt-d \

So I did a find in the boost directory and was presented with a lot of things that looked similar so I just modified the makefile to match what the find returned...removing the -mgw45-mt-d-1_44 part makes compilation fail. Modifying my makefile too much makes it fail as well, and I don't really want to deviate too far from from what was provided as the default makefile for mingw under windows (I think what I'm doing this far is more or less working because it makes it all the way to program_options before giving me errors).

Also please note that removing 'lib' does not seem to matter, it still gets to the program_options part and fails with the same error messages I posted earlier


For example, if I run
Code:
find . -name "libboost_program_options*" -print
in my source/libraries directory I get all of this:
(output from the mingw shell)

Code:
[username]@Desktop /c/Users/[username]/Desktop/bitcoin-CUDA-svn153-src-gpl
$ find . -name "libboost_program_options*" -print

The only other thing I can maybe think of is that I should be adding .a or .dll to the end of each line...but the ones prior to program_options seem to be doing ok with out it, so I'm still stumped  Huh


In case anyone wants to take a look at the full compilation output up until the errors:

This was not done after a fresh make clean because it would be very long, I could however provide that if it would be helpful.

Hi,

I am trying to compile bitcoin on Windows 7 64-bit with MinGW and I have found the wx, openssl and boost sources but I am still unsure as to what db_cxx.h is and where I can find it.

Please enlighten me.

Thank you,

Chris

I just committed (to git and svn) an updated build-msw.txt
Thanks to m0mchil for putting together a working windows/mingw build environment.

And I'll be making the 0.3.20 build environment virtual machines (for Windows, Linux32, and Linux64, in the Amazon EC2 cloud) public, hopefully, if all goes well, later today.

Will I see you in Amsterdam?

Gavin, is this windows/mingw build environment publicly available?

Yes, it is public Amazon ami-2edd2e47   named  982440761210/BitcoinMinGW

The linux32 and linux64 amis I used to build the linux releases are also public.

Will I see you in Amsterdam?

Caston, you'll have to sign up to Amazon's EC2 services, and then you can search for the image and launch an instance of it from the online AWS management console.

Gavin, do you have / can you make public the image for the dodgy 0.3.20 VC10 build? I'd like to have a look and compare it to my home build to see if I can reproduce that rendering artifact problem. Thanks.

Is this to compile a Windows binary much faster than it would on your own PC? e.g. if I did get the compile going I may find myself sitting there for X number of hours (days?) waiting for it to compile but you smart guys do it on EC2 instead...
