Meteor is a Nintendo Gameboy Advance emulator. The CLI and GTK frontends run only on Linux. You can use the libretro implementation if you want to run it on Microsoft Windows or if you want features from the retroarch frontend.
The libretro build is the recommended way to use Meteor. retroarch is an emulator frontend and Meteor is a backend implementation.
To build the libretro implementation, you need no dependency. Just go to the libretro folder and type make, this will create a meteor_libretro.so, meteor_libretro.dll or meteor_libretro.dylib.
GTK frontend build
