I've read the information about building vbox on windows here:
I have no trouble installing all the native Win32 tools (VS2005, SDK,
DDK, SDL, DXSDK), but the MinGW tools are all just a bunch of files in
Where do I install all the MinGW files? Do I need to set them up in any
special way or run any installer?
There is mention on the page of cygwin but cygwin is NOT listed as a
prerequisite tool. Do I need cygwin? If so, where do I get it and
which version should I use.
Basically, if someone can give me a few easy steps to get all the needed
tools correctly installed for WinXP I'd really appreciate it.
