This file contains remarks specific to the Windows port of Coq.
The Coq package for Windows comes with an auto-installer. It will
install Coq binaries and libraries under any directory you specify
(C:\Program Files\Coq is the default path). It also creates shortcuts
in the Windows menus. Alternatively, you can launch Coq using Coq.bat
and Coqide.bat in the installation directory (C:\Program Files\Coq by
If you want to install Coq, you had better transfer the precompiled
distribution. If you really need to recompile under Windows, here
are some indications:
1- Install OCaml for Windows (MinGW port), preferably version 3.11.0.
If you choose OCaml 3.11.0, you also need to install FlexDLL.
As shell script really dislikes space character within file
names, we strongly advise you to install OCaml to a path not
containing spaces, like 'C:\OCaml'
2- Install a shell environment with at least:
- a C compiler (gcc),
- the GNU make utility
The Cygwin environment is well suited for compiling Coq
(official packages are made using Cygwin) See:
3- If using OCaml version >= 3.10.0, you have to install Camlp5.
4- In order to compile Coqide, you will need the LablGTK library
You also need to install the GTK libraries for Windows (see the
installation instruction for LablGTK)
5- In a shell window, type successively
make world
make install
6- Though not nescessary, you can find useful:
- Windows version of (X)Emacs: it is a powerful environment for
developpers with coloured syntax, modes for compilation and debug,
and many more. It is free. See:
- Windows subversion client (very useful if you have access to the Coq
Good luck :-)
