Are there SegWit testnet client binaries for Windows available?
I am too dumb to compile client from sources.

There is block explorer here: https://segnet.smartbit.com.au/
But where can I download a client?

There isn't. You will have to build it on your own from https://github.com/sipa/bitcoin/tree/segwit

Can anybody compile it for me and share exe-file?
I will run it on clean VM so I do not care about viruses, back-doors, malware, compromising keys
and malfunctioning. I do not have enough knowledge and skills to compile current core sources.

Looks like this guide[1] is missing a few steps. Anyway build this[2] code for win64. Its missing the usual .dll file, but it worked on one of my test VMs (Win8.1) and its announcing an unknown service on the network.

Code:
NETWORK & BLOOM & UNKNOWN[8]

let me know when you downloaded it. -> http://188.68.53.44/amaclin/bitcoin-test-segwit.zip

Oups... But...
How to start it in segwit mode?
I am running it with
Code:
start bitcoin-qt.exe -datadir=X:\segwit\data -testnet
...and it downloads testnet3 blockchain starting from 2012  Undecided

You must verify the hash and my signature before you use.

I have not tested the binary. Please let me know if it does not work.

For what? You do not have obligations for me.
Verifying signatures can only prove that 'you' signed it. Nothing more.

Thanks a lot. But there was a package above in this topic by @shorena
I've downloaded the client yesterday. It works.
I even mined 3 blocks on my CPU in an hour Smiley
(In fact I wrote 'setgenerate true' just for fun and forgot for an hour that the client is running  Grin )
I think that one set of binaries is enough for me Smiley

It proofs the package is not corrupted or replaced by someone else. It's always a good practice to check the hash at the very least

It proofs the package is not corrupted or replaced by someone else.
Let us call the things with their names.
1) I do not know who are you.
2) You do not have obligations for me.
Conclusion: there is no difference for me - is this package came from you or from anybody else.
My steps do not depend of the validness of your signature.
So, there is no need for me to check it.

Is it clear? Sorry, my English is also bad as my programming skills Smiley

Fair enough. As you mentioned you are using it in VM so that's probably fine.

But since you are already using a VM, why not using a Linux one? It's much easier to compile a Linux binary

1) I am not familar with Linux
2) I already have Windows VM image
3) I am too dumb to switch between environments Smiley

I am too dumb

Since we are honest, I dont believe this and I dont think you do. Whatever it will be you are working, Im excited to see what will come out of it.

It looks like I got ~27% of the networks hash power with 3 cores. Almost no one is mining. Its fun.

This I don't believe.  I've read your comments and you never come across as dumb.   ;-)
