- Download a bunch
of stuff. You're going to need both gtk+ itself, as
ported to Win32, and a suitable C-language
compiler. In parentheses I show the specific
software versions I have used, but presumably later
versions will work just as well.
(In fact, since the time this section was written, I have used later
versions of most of these libraries. Forgive me
for not providing exact links, but as you can imagine,
these are likely to change so often that I would have a
tough time keeping them up to date.)
- From www.mingw.org,
download the MSYS (1.0.9) and MinGW (3.1.0-1) exe
- From www.gimp.org,
download all of the following zipfiles: atk
(1.2.4), atk-dev (1.2.4), gettext-runtime (0.12.1),
gettext-tools (0.12.1), glib (2.2.3), glib-dev
(2.2.3), gtk+ (2.2.4), gtk+-dev (2.2.4), jpeg lib
(6b-1), jpeg bin (6b-1), libiconv lib (1.9.1), libpng
lib (1.2.5), libpng bin (1.2.5) pango (1.2.5),
pango-dev (1.2.5), pkgconfig (0.15), tiff lib (3.5.7),
tiff bin (3.5.7), zlib lib (1.1.4-1), zlib bin
- Install MinGW.
is simply a matter of running the exe file you
downloaded above, and answering the prompts. For
the sake of argument, I'm going to assume that you have
used the installation directory c:\mingw.
- Install all of the zipfiles you downloaded
above. Unzip them under c:\mingw. After
doing so, you should see directories such as
c:\mingw\bin, c:\mingw\usr, c:\mingw\etc, and so on.
- Move the file(s) libatk*.dll from c:\mingw\lib to
- Install Msys.
this is just running the exe file and following the
prompts. It doesn't really matter what
install-directory you use, but at the end you will be
prompted to tell which directory MinGW was installed
under. (The answer will be c:/mingw.)

compile Virtual AGC programs, then you can return to the
