Installing on Windows

Currently Windows is not officially supported as we have not needed to run SPDLib on Windows but we have not done anything to stop it working on Windows and the cmake build system has full windows support. You will need to install the pre-requists for SPDLib and most of these can be installed through the osgeo installer while an installer for Boost can be downloaded from

If you do try to install the software under Windows please let us know how you got on via the mailing list and if you need any help just let us know and we will do what we can - we would like to see the software running on Windows but just haven't had the time or need up until this point.
