CoinHelp tries to help users and project managers to find information about COIN-OR.

Precompiled Libraries and Executables

  • Linux: By now, many of the COIN-OR projects have been packaged and are available on Linux distributions for installation with a package manager. On Debian, COIN-OR projects are generally named coinor-xyz and can be installed with apt. On Fedora, the naming convention is coin-or-Xyz. Pre-compiled binaries are also available for many projects on BinTray and as part of the COIN-OR Optimization Suite.
  • Windows: The easiest way to get COIN-OR projects for Windows is to download binaries from BinTray or just use the Windows installer for the COIN Optimization Suite, which provides Visual Studio compatible libraries and binaries (these are slightly out of date, however).
  • OS X: Many projects can be installed on OSX through Homebrew, e.g., brew install xyz. For other projects, pre-compiled binaries are available from BinTray

Quick Source Download, Build, and Installation Guide

For Unix-like systems (Unix, Linux, MacOS X, Cygwin, MSys), the quick download and installation guide works in most cases if you don't have particular requirements.

For the the options for building under Windows, see this page first. There is also a Wiki dedicated just to the options for building with the Microsfoft Visual Studio compilers.
