Hi all, I recently went through the process of building bitcoind on windows.
I found the official build-msw.txt to be a bit lacking, so I thought that documenting the steps here on the forums could save some time to people wanting to compile their own windows binary. Wink

Please note this is mostly for testing purposes. Always use official executables on production environments.
The following instructions are intended for use with version 0.9.4. See additional notes if compiling 0.10rc4 or an older 0.8.6 branch.

1. Prepare your build system.
I strongly suggest setting up a clean windows virtual machine via Virtualbox or similar.

1.1 Install msys shell:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw/files/Installer/mingw-get-setup.exe/download
From MinGW installation manager -> All packages -> MSYS
mark the following for installation:

msys-base-bin
msys-autoconf-bin
msys-automake-bin
msys-libtool-bin


then click on Installation -> Apply changes

Make sure no mingw packages are checked for installation or present from a previous install. Only the above msys packages should be installed. Also make sure that msys-gcc and msys-w32api packages are not installed.

1.2 Install MinGW-builds project toolchain:
Download http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw-w64/files/Toolchains%20targetting%20Win32/Personal%20Builds/mingw-builds/4.9.2/threads-posix/dwarf/i686-4.9.2-release-posix-dwarf-rt_v3-rev1.7z/download
and unpack it to C:\

1.3. Ensure that mingw-builds bin folder is set in your PATH environment variable. On Windows 7 your path should look something like:
Code:
C:\mingw32\bin;%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\

1.4 Additional checks:
C:\MinGW\bin should contain nothing but mingw-get.exe.
Your gcc -v output should be:
Code:
$ gcc -v
Using built-in specs.
COLLECT_GCC=c:\mingw32\bin\gcc.exe
COLLECT_LTO_WRAPPER=c:/mingw32/bin/../libexec/gcc/i686-w64-mingw32/4.9.2/lto-wrapper.exe

2. Download, unpack and build required dependencies.
I'll save them in c:\deps folder.

2.1 OpenSSL: http://www.openssl.org/source/openssl-1.0.1l.tar.gz
From a MinGw shell (C:\MinGW\msys\1.0\msys.bat), unpack the source archive with tar (this will avoid symlink issues) then configure and make:
Code:
cd /c/deps/
tar xvfz openssl-1.0.1l.tar.gz
cd openssl-1.0.1l
./Configure no-zlib no-shared no-dso no-krb5 no-camellia no-capieng no-cast no-cms no-dtls1 no-gost no-gmp no-heartbeats no-idea no-jpake no-md2 no-mdc2 no-rc5 no-rdrand no-rfc3779 no-rsax no-sctp no-seed no-sha0 no-static_engine no-whirlpool no-rc2 no-rc4 no-ssl2 no-ssl3 mingw
make

2.2 Berkeley DB: http://download.oracle.com/berkeley-db/db-4.8.30.NC.tar.gz
We'll use version 4.8 to preserve binary wallet compatibility.
From a MinGW shell unpack the source archive, configure and make:
Code:
cd /c/deps/
tar xvfz db-4.8.30.NC.tar.gz
cd db-4.8.30.NC/build_unix
../dist/configure --enable-mingw --enable-cxx --disable-shared --disable-replication
make

2.3 Boost: http://sourceforge.net/projects/boost/files/boost/1.57.0/
Download either the zip or the 7z archive, unpack boost inside your C:\deps folder, then bootstrap and compile from a Windows command prompt:
Code:
cd C:\deps\boost_1_57_0\
bootstrap.bat mingw
b2 --build-type=complete --with-chrono --with-filesystem --with-program_options --with-system --with-thread toolset=gcc variant=release link=static threading=multi runtime-link=static stage

This will compile the required boost libraries and put them into the stage folder (C:\deps\boost_1_57_0\stage).
Note: make sure you don't use tarballs, as unix EOL markers can break batch files.

2.4 Miniupnpc: http://miniupnp.free.fr/files/download.php?file=miniupnpc-1.9.20150206.tar.gz
Unpack Miniupnpc to C:\deps, rename containing folder from "miniupnpc-1.9.20150206" to "miniupnpc" then from a Windows command prompt:
Code:
cd C:\deps\miniupnpc
mingw32-make -f Makefile.mingw init upnpc-static

2.5 protoc and libprotobuf:
Download https://github.com/google/protobuf/releases/download/v2.6.1/protobuf-2.6.1.tar.gz
Then from msys shell
Code:
tar xvfz protobuf-2.6.1.tar.gz
cd /c/deps/protobuf-2.6.1
configure --disable-shared
make

2.6 qrencode:
Download and unpack http://download.sourceforge.net/libpng/libpng-1.6.16.tar.gz inside your deps folder then configure and make:
Code:
cd /c/deps/libpng-1.6.16
configure --disable-shared
make
cp .libs/libpng16.a .libs/libpng.a

Download and unpack http://fukuchi.org/works/qrencode/qrencode-3.4.4.tar.gz inside your deps folder then configure and make:
Code:
cd /c/deps/qrencode-3.4.4

LIBS="../libpng-1.6.16/.libs/libpng.a ../../mingw32/i686-w64-mingw32/lib/libz.a" \
png_CFLAGS="-I../libpng-1.6.16" \
png_LIBS="-L../libpng-1.6.16/.libs" \
configure --enable-static --disable-shared --without-tools

make

2.7 Qt 5 libraries:
Qt must be configured with ssl and zlib support.
Download and unpack Qt base and tools sources:
http://download.qt-project.org/official_releases/qt/5.3/5.3.2/submodules/qtbase-opensource-src-5.3.2.7z
http://download.qt-project.org/official_releases/qt/5.3/5.3.2/submodules/qttools-opensource-src-5.3.2.7z
Then from a windows command prompt (note that the following assumes qtbase has been unpacked to C:\Qt\5.3.2 and qttools have been unpacked to C:\Qt\qttools-opensource-src-5.3.2):
Code:
set INCLUDE=C:\deps\libpng-1.6.16;C:\deps\openssl-1.0.1l\include
set LIB=C:\deps\libpng-1.6.16\.libs;C:\deps\openssl-1.0.1l

cd C:\Qt\5.3.2
configure.bat -release -opensource -confirm-license -static -make libs -no-sql-sqlite -no-opengl -system-zlib -qt-pcre -no-icu -no-gif -system-libpng -no-libjpeg -no-freetype -no-angle -no-vcproj -openssl -no-dbus -no-audio-backend -no-wmf-backend -no-qml-debug

mingw32-make

set PATH=%PATH%;C:\Qt\5.3.2\bin

cd C:\Qt\qttools-opensource-src-5.3.2
qmake qttools.pro
mingw32-make

Note: consider using -j switch with mingw32-make to speed up compilation process. On a quad core -j4 or -j5 should give the best results.


3. Download and unpack Bitcoin 0.9.4 from git https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/archive/v0.9.4.zip

From msys shell configure and make bitcoin:
Code:
cd /c/bitcoin-0.9.4

./autogen.sh

CPPFLAGS="-I/c/deps/db-4.8.30.NC/build_unix \
-I/c/deps/openssl-1.0.1l/include \
-I/c/deps \
-I/c/deps/protobuf-2.6.1/src \
-I/c/deps/libpng-1.6.16 \
-I/c/deps/qrencode-3.4.4" \
LDFLAGS="-L/c/deps/db-4.8.30.NC/build_unix \

-L/c/deps/miniupnpc \
-L/c/deps/protobuf-2.6.1/src/.libs \
-L/c/deps/libpng-1.6.16/.libs \
-L/c/deps/qrencode-3.4.4/.libs" \
BOOST_ROOT=/c/deps/boost_1_57_0 \
./configure \
--disable-upnp-default \
--disable-tests \
--with-qt-incdir=/c/Qt/5.3.2/include \
--with-qt-libdir=/c/Qt/5.3.2/lib \
--with-qt-plugindir=/c/Qt/5.3.2/plugins \
--with-qt-bindir=/c/Qt/5.3.2/bin \
--with-protoc-bindir=/c/deps/protobuf-2.6.1/src

make

strip src/bitcoin-cli.exe
strip src/bitcoind.exe
strip src/qt/bitcoin-qt.exe



Additional notes:
64 bit binaries
64 bit binaries can be compiled by using the following toolchain:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw-w64/files/Toolchains%20targetting%20Win64/Personal%20Builds/mingw-builds/4.9.2/threads-posix/seh/x86_64-4.9.2-release-posix-seh-rt_v3-rev1.7z/download

All dependencies must be rebuilt with the above toolchain.
Openssl should be configured for:
Code:
mingw64
instead of:
Code:
mingw


Bitcoin v0.10rc4
Since v0.10 Bitcoin depends on gmp: https://gmplib.org/download/gmp/gmp-6.0.0a.tar.xz
Compile it in a msys shell
Code:
tar xvf gmp-6.0.0a.tar.xz
cd /c/deps/gmp-6.0.0
./configure --disable-shared
make

Then add relevant CPPFLAGS and LDFLAGS when configuring Bitcoin:
Code:
CPPFLAGS="-I/c/deps/db-4.8.30.NC/build_unix \
-I/c/deps/openssl-1.0.1l/include \
-I/c/deps \
-I/c/deps/protobuf-2.6.1/src \
-I/c/deps/libpng-1.6.16 \
-I/c/deps/qrencode-3.4.4 \
-I/c/deps/gmp-6.0.0" \
LDFLAGS="-L/c/deps/db-4.8.30.NC/build_unix \
-L/c/deps/openssl-1.0.1l \
-L/c/deps/miniupnpc \
-L/c/deps/protobuf-2.6.1/src/.libs \
-L/c/deps/libpng-1.6.16/.libs \
-L/c/deps/qrencode-3.4.4/.libs \
-L/c/deps/gmp-6.0.0/.libs" \
BOOST_ROOT=/c/deps/boost_1_57_0 \
./configure \
--disable-upnp-default \
--disable-tests \
--with-qt-incdir=/c/Qt/5.3.2/include \
--with-qt-libdir=/c/Qt/5.3.2/lib \
--with-qt-plugindir=/c/Qt/5.3.2/plugins \
--with-qt-bindir=/c/Qt/5.3.2/bin \
--with-protoc-bindir=/c/deps/protobuf-2.6.1/src


Compiling with unit tests
In order to build unit tests you will need the following:
-boost
Boost must be configured with --with-test option also.

-hexdump
To generate test data an hexdump like program is needed.
Download and unpack https://github.com/wahern/hexdump then compile hexdump.exe by running:
Code:
gcc -std=gnu99 -g -O2 -Wall -Wextra -Werror -Wno-unused-variable -Wno-unused-parameter hexdump.c -DHEXDUMP_MAIN -o hexdump.exe
Do not forget to add hexdump folder to your PATH environment variable.

-bitcoin
In order to work with the previously compiled hexdump version Makefile must be patched (src/Makefile.test.include if v0.10, src/Makefile.include if v0.9):
Code:
--- src/Makefile.test.include Tue Dec 23 20:14:37 2014
+++ src/Makefile.test.include Sat Jan 10 16:53:56 2015

bitcoin must be configured without --disable-tests option.






Additional notes for older Bitcoin 0.8.6 (may be useful for Bitcoin based altcoins)
msys-autoconf, msys-automake and msys-libtool at step 1.1 are not needed. You can skip steps 2.5 and 2.7.
Note that openssl v1.0.1k and later may lead to consesus forks:
http://sourceforge.net/p/bitcoin/mailman/message/33221963/

Compile bitcoind 0.8.6: https://github.com/bitcoin/bitcoin/archive/v0.8.6.zip

With a texteditor edit BOOST_SUFFIX, INCLUDEPATHS and LIBPATHS in your C:\bitcoin-0.8.6\src\makefile.mingw according to your dependencies location:
Code:
BOOST_SUFFIX?=-mgw49-mt-s-1_57

INCLUDEPATHS= \

 -L"/c/deps/db-4.8.30.NC/build_unix" \
 -L"/c/deps/openssl-1.0.1j"

and add -static option to LDFLAGS in makefile.mingw to compile a statically linked executable.
Code:
LDFLAGS=-Wl,--dynamicbase -Wl,--nxcompat -Wl,--large-address-aware -static

Great guide. Now that you're not a newbie anymore, consider moving it to "Development & Technical Discussion" so it doesn't get buried with all the other newbie threads. Also, is it possible to expand your guide to include building the qt client?

Unfortunately I never tried building the qt client, I'll see if I can have a look at it and report back if I manage to build it successfully Wink

It's possible to compile Bitcoin-Qt as well, done it already. Depending on your toolchain(GCC 4.7+), you may need to compile the Qt libraries from source, only takes about an hour or so. Then the rest is easy.

Building a dinamically linked executable was almost straightforward (didn't have time to check if it actually works), however I was unable to get a statically linked executable (lots of undefined references from ld) after compiling static qt libs. Need to investigate further.
I will update the first post with the required steps in the next few days.

just edit whatever code you want to edit in your IDE, and follow the steps to compile it. And no, there's no easy 1click compile for windows.

I figured out my confusion after some research

Apparently code block uses it's project files in lieu of make files, but there are ways to use make files when compiling in code blocks, go it.

My confusion was when I've compiled stuff using codeblocks I never needed a makefile, but now I see why. I just got my hands on VS12 so eventually I'll have to learn how to use that.

Apologize, I havn't done C++ in 10 years since college and back in those days I used a borland compiler on a unix server and never did anything that complex.

Right now I'm re-learning everything and getting a crash course in Programming, Cryptography and Bitcoin source code. Although I have learned a lot in a short period of time although this project will take awhile but my current goal is to successfully compile Litecoin so I can see how it's done, then understand the genesis block code which I conceptually am starting to get now it's just a matter of seeing how it translates in code.

(spent the weekend reading on the history and concept of proof of work, etc.)

Borland *compiler* on unix?

Are you perhaps referring to the C++ BuilderX environment (which is *not* a compiler)?

probably, again, ignorance

I'm trying to fix it though, once I start learning something I usually get obsessed until I know everything so give me a couple of months and we'll see what I'm at.

VC++ uses "project" files as well, but they have support for msbuild makefiles. keep in mind that the makefiles included with bitcoin are not msbuild compatible.

thanks, I'll play with that, I want to get gitian builder setup in my VMbox but I'm not sure how to install it from the source (I assume you compile, but as you can see I'm learning about compiling at the moment making it hard for me to install gitian)

The Qt Sdk from Nokia is actually a very good IDE (the best free-as-in-beer one, I think),
and because bitcoin code comes with the project file for it, you should use it for editing.

gitian is pretty easy. it sets up the vm, installs all the packages needed for compilation, and compiles it. It's all done inside a vm with scripts (included with bitcoin), so it's actually easier than compiling using your own tools.
