Building Windows Installer
These instructions describe how to build the Windows installer package. It is a self-extracting executable that you can use to install Bibledit on another computer without having to install the entire build environment. We will assume that you are on a 64-bit Windows environment and will be building the installer for the same.
- Make sure you run the MinGW-w64 Win64 Shell as administrator.
- cd 64bit/bibledit/gtk
- windows/installWin.sh --strip --generateinstall
The --strip option shrinks the executable sizes.
The --generateinstall option tells installWin.sh to create the self-extracting installer.
- The entire process takes under 2 minutes on Windows 7 Pro with an SSD.
