Open source software compiled for Windows systems

The 32-bit executable files (archive names ending with "...-win32.zip") of applications provided through the links on this page were compiled with the MinGW implementation of the gcc. These 32-bit executable files run normally on modern Windows 64-bit-systems. Some 64-bit executable files (archive names ending with "...-win64.zip") were created with the gcc compiler environment of the MinGW-w64-project with MSYS2. More MinGW-implementations of the gcc can be found on the web page winlibs.com.

All the compiled applications on this page are made available without any warranty. No support is provided for all compiled software. Information on problems, however, is always welcome.
