I recommend you follow those instructions closely. VS 2010 is the supported version.

Hi,


Im considering building VirtualBox svn trunk on Windows, and am looking for some instructions.

I noticed this document on the wiki :
https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Windows%20build%20instructions

However, all the software versions mentioned in the prerequisite section seem to be quite outdated. For example, is v7.1 still the required/preferred Windows SDK/WDK version ? Is Visual Studio 2010 still the required/preferred compiler ? GCC 3.3.3 for MingW32 ? Same for all the other versions.

So does this document need some updating, or perhaps there even is another, more current, guide for building latest virtualbox on Windows ?



Thanks,



- Maarten
