MSYS

To build ITK using MSYS on Windows 7, follow these instructions.

Download from here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw/files/latest/download?source=files

or if there is a later version from the time that this page was written, download it from here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw/files/Installer/

Make sure to check "C compiler", "C++ compiler", and "MinGW Developer ToolKit".

You MUST add mingw to your path (Add "c:/MinGW/bin" to the "PATH" variable here: Right click my computer -> Properties -> Advanced System Settings -> Advanced -> Environment variables)

You MUST add msys to your path (Add "C:\MinGW\msys\1.0\bin" to the "PATH" variable here: Right click my computer -> Properties -> Advanced System Settings -> Advanced -> Environment variables)

  • Launch the CMake GUI (from the normal shortcut in the Start Menu)
  • Next to "Where is the source code:", click "Browse Source..." and navigate to where you cloned the repository with Git.
  • Next to "Where to build the binaries:", select "Browse Build..." and select a place to build the ITK library. For example, you could use c:\build\ITK. This directory MUST NOT be inside the directory where you cloned the repository.
  • Click "Configure", and then specify "MSYS Makefiles" (NOT (MinGW Makefiles")as the generator for this project.
  • Choose your build options. I like to UNCHECK BUILD_EXAMPLES and BUILD_TESTING as they speed up the build process significantly.
  • Click "Generate".
  • Start a MinGW Shell (Start -> Programs -> MinGW -> MinGW Shell)
  • Navigate to the Build directory you specified through CMake (e.g. cd /c/build/ITK)
  • Run 'make'

Ninja

To build ITK using MSYS/MinGW/Ninja on Windows 7, follow these instructions.

Download from here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw/files/latest/download?source=files

or if there is a later version from the time that this page was written, download it from here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/mingw/files/Installer/

Make sure to check "C compiler", "C++ compiler", and "MinGW Developer ToolKit".

Download Ninja from here: https://github.com/martine/ninja/downloads Unzip the the zipfile.

  • Start a MinGW Shell (Start -> Programs -> MinGW -> MinGW Shell)
  • Move ninja.exe to the a location in the PATH environmental variable (e.g. mv /c/Downloads/ninja.exe /mingw/bin/)
  • Launch the CMake GUI from the MinGW shell (/c/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/CMake\ 2.8/bin/cmake-gui.exe)
  • Next to "Where is the source code:", click "Browse Source..." and navigate to where you cloned the repository with Git.
  • Next to "Where to build the binaries:", select "Browse Build..." and select a place to build the ITK library. For example, you could use c:\build\ITK. This directory MUST NOT be inside the directory where you cloned the repository.
  • Click "Configure", and then specify "Ninja" (NOT (MinGW Makefiles")as the generator for this project.

  • Click "Generate".
  • Navigate to the Build directory you specified through CMake (e.g. cd /c/build/ITK)

  • Navigate to the Build directory you specified through CMake (e.g. cd /c/build/ITK)
  • Run 'mingw32-make' (note: 'make' does not seem to produce any errors, but it seems to not do anything (just returns immediately to the terminal)
