--- msys_setup - this is a set of scripts that setup an MSYS/MinGW environment on Windows and allows to compile libvirt and related libraries and tools --- Is this what you're looking for? - if you want a prebuilt Windows installer for libvirt, rather than compiling from source yourself, take a look at http://libvirt.org/windows.html - that installer is for a quite old version by now and it includes 32-bit binaries only. more recent libvirt binaries for 32-bit and 64-bit are part of the the virt-viewer installer for Windows that can be downloaded from http://spice-space.org/download.html -- General MSYS/MinGW environment setup - download wget.exe from http://users.ugent.be/~bpuype/wget/ and put it in the same directory as msys_setup.bat - run msys_setup.bat to download and setup an MSYS/MinGW environment you'll see automated Windows Installer popups for 7zip and Python. the script is not actually installing something to your system, it just unpacks both into subdirectories for later use. when you have UAC enabled (Windows Vista and Windows 7) then Windows will ask you for confirmation, you need to allow 7zip and Python to get unpacked --- Compiling libvirt - see readme_libvirt.txt --- Setting up virt-manager - see readme_virt-manager.txt
