To start, download the installer for MSYS2 from the linked website.Be sure to grab the x86_64 version: Now, run the installer.Simply right-click on a folder in Windows Explorer to access the BASH or GUI.As an open source project, Git for Windows benefits greatly from both the volunteer work of helpful developers and good bug reports made by Git for Windows' users.The MAME development environment for Windows consists of the GCC compiler (by way of Min GW), and the MSYS2 (POSIX/Unix compatability layer), plus various utilities such as Python and Git.It is available as a prepackaged installer, or can be assembled from upstream components.Click next at the prompt: Use the default installation directory of . Click next: Leave the Run MSYS2 64-bit now option checked, and click finish: You should now see a MSYS2 terminal.
You can tell that you are in the MINGW64 shell by the purple “MINGW64” in the command prompt.The Min GW-w64 toolchain is now installed, along with all the libraries and command-line tools that Me TA’s build system uses.Finally, we can download and compile Me TA and its unit tests.* The all-in-one package on the Min GW-w64 download page.It is updated on request (see third option for very up to date collection) * Min GW-builds provides an ultra-inclusive MSYS package with a bunch of additional useful stuff. If you are experiencing problems, you can also set --build to the same value.Me TA can be built on Windows using the Min GW-w64 toolchain with gcc.We currently only support using MSYS2 as this makes fetching the compiler and related libraries significantly easier than it would be otherwise, and it tends to have very up-to-date packages relative to other similar Min GW distributions.This visual guide will help you get the MSYS2 environment installed and updated, and then will show you how to compile and run the Me TA and its unit tests.Do note that some of the steps look slightly different for you (different terminal output or prompts), but you should still be able to follow this guide.Issue Tracker The Git for Windows SDK is a build environment that includes all the tools necessary for developers who want to contribute by writing code for Git for Windows.Please look at the technical overview of the Git for Windows packaging and how to include your changes in your own custom installer.
