Hello, today I have download the lastest source code from SVN (svn://www.ultimatepp.org/upp/trunk/)

I just got a file with all the source code of Upp (including folder: autotest, autotst, bazaar, benchmarks, examples, rainbow, reference, tutorial, uppbox, uppsrc, upptst, archive)
and a makefile. I just open a Mintty terminal and just type mingw32-make

Then this happened : https://i.imgur.com/6kKlgkP.png

Since pkg-config is not part of Windows/Mintty it seems like makefile can't be used to build UMK.

So I'm pretty sure I should use Visual studio but I'm stuck at the point where I have no idea of how to use visual studio to do such a thing.
Has someone already done it can share is technique?

Thanks in advance,
Best regard.

Current U++ Makefiles from svn/git repository work on Linux.

Please use U++ package for Windows (with CLANG) to get prebuild binaries.

https://www.ultimatepp.org/www$uppweb$download$en-us.html

With the included theide binary (U++ RAD tool), you will be able to compile U++ from source.

Building U++ with mingw32 requires binaries and libraries not included into default mingw32 distribution.

I don't know how all this is packaged but it easier to get the windows tarball and build U++ from there.

Indeed,I originally use my old UMK to build the new with new source (thanks you again Koldo for the tips Very Happy )
But as I just cleaned my computer, I had say myself (mostly for learning purpose)"humm let's try to build Umk/TheIDE from SVN clear pull" leading me to the question of "how they build Umk/TheIDE on windows ?!"
