Compile for Windows - 64-BIT (x64)
Tested using windows 10 pro x64, build 1703.
Install latest libusbk release from: (this installs both libusb and libusbk windows components required for running libnfc applications)
install mingw64 toolchain on Windows:
Install latest version of: MSYS2 for 64-bit windows.
even if msys2 version appears old, the packages it installs are very recent:
Open the MSYS shell in mingw-64 mode (64-bit mode)
#update the MSYS system using pacman: pacman -Syu #close the shell, re-open and run: pacman -Su #install build tools: pacman -S git make mingw-w64-$(uname -m)-gcc mingw-w64-$(uname -m)-binutils mingw-w64-$(uname -m)-cmake mingw-w64-$(uname -m)-zlib mingw-w64-$(uname -m)-make
download and extract: libusb-win32-bin-184.108.40.206.zip
todo: (this step shouldn't be needed, as libusb0.dll is already in system32, but the logic is broken in the libusb search that cmake uses in: cmake/modules/FindLIBUSB.cmake, so do this step for now)
Extract contents to the native program files directory: (not the x86 program files!):
Restart msys2 bash - in mingw-64 mode.
#download libnfc source files: cd ~ mkdir libnfc-build-win64 git clone https://github.com/peacepenguin/libnfc.git # launch windows powershell x64 (non-admin) # add some paths for current build session: $env:Path += ";c:\msys64\mingw64\bin;c:\msys64\mingw64\x86_64-w64-mingw32\lib;c:\msys64\mingw64\x86_64-w64-mingw32\include" cd C:\msys64\home\<your username>\libnfc-build-win64 #then, run "CMD.exe" from within the powershell, (this ensures the PATH set above is available in the build environment) cmd.exe # configure the build with cmake: cmake -G "MinGW Makefiles" -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release ..\libnfc # run cmake again, same parameters, otherwise errors appear: cmake -G "MinGW Makefiles" -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release ..\libnfc # build it! mingw32-make
put your "libnfc.conf" into c:\program files (x86)\libnfc\config\libnfc.conf
todo: it is the wrong location currently for a x64 system, but it works and this will be fixed to use c:\programdata\libnfc\config\libnfc.conf at some point.
put compiled DLL file to the real system32 directory: (c:\windows\sysnative\libnfc.dll on syswow64 machines)
copy .\libnfc\libnfc.dll c:\windows\system32\libnfc.dll
