Compiling Open Source Forensic Tools with MinGW
Many open source computer forensic tools can be cross-compiled with MinGW. This allows you to create Windows executable directly from a Macintosh computer or Linux machine without using the Microsoft VC++ environment.
- On a Mac using MacPorts
$ sudo port selfupdate $ sudo port install i386-mingw32-binutils i386-mingw32-gcc $ sudo port install i386-mingw32-libunicows i386-mingw32-runtime $ sudo port install i386-mingw32-w32api
note: If you get the error message 'warnings treated as errors' you will need to find the Makefile where -Werror is defined and erase it
