Various software and tools are required to compile Snes9x on Windows:
NOTE: Unicode support requires a special zlib build - see the end of the zlib entry
- The current official binary is compiled with Visual Studio 2017, you'll have to create
your own project file for earlier MSVC versions. VS2017 will automatically ask to install
the correct Windows SDK Version (7.1A)
- A recent DirectX SDK. The official binary is compiled against the August 2009 SDK.
Note that as of the June 2010 release of the DirectX SDK, DirectDraw has been removed
(DirectDraw is disabled by default, DIRECTDRAW_SUPPORT enables it)

- zlib (optional, ZLIB define, enabled by default) - the default solution includes a zlib
project that builds appropriately (force includes _tfwopen.h for unicode support in s9x).
The zlib directory should reside at win32/zlib/src, or you can download it automatically
with git submodule init && git submodule update.
- libpng (optional, HAVE_LIBPNG define, enabled by default) - the default solution includes
a libpng project that builds appropriately.
The libpng directory should reside at win32/libpng/src, or you can download it automatically
with git submodule init && git submodule update.
- To compile Snes9x:
Start up VS2017.
Load the Snes9x solution.
Select the desired configuration and build.
The Release configuration may build significantly slower than Debug.
Then you can run it.
