Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit*
1. Setup Build Environment
- 1) Install Microsoft Visual Studio 2008* SP1 in the build machine and make sure that AMD64 complier was selected when installing.
- 1) Extract files in [UDK2014.MyWorkSpace.zip] to the working space directory (e.g C:). Note the Directory "MyWorkSpace" will be created as a result. In this case, it is C:\MyWorkspace.
- 2) There are two BaseTools package one is for Windows system and another is for UNIX-Like system. Please make sure BaseTools(Windows).zip is used here. Expand the appropriate BaseTools to C:\MyWorkSpace
- Open file "C:\MyWorkspace\CryptoPkg\Library\OpensslLib\Patch-HOWTO.txt" and follow the instruction to install OpenSSL* for UEFI building.
- 1) Open a command prompt, type command "cd C:\MyWorkspace" to enter the workspace directory, and then type command
to initialize the working environment. See also: Windows_systems_ToolChain_Matrix for how to change the TOOL_CHAIN_TAG for supported compiler combinations.
- 2) Type below commands to build platforms (below assumes Microsoft Visual Studio 2008)
Note: There are two methods to select the tool chain (Use Microsoft Visual Studio 2008* as sample):
- 1. Update TOOL_CHAIN_TAG in file Conf/target.txt: TOOL_CHAIN_TAG = VS2008

1. Extract Common Source Code
- 1) Create a working space directory in the build machine, for example, ~/src/
- 2) Extract files in [UDK2014.MyWorkSpace.zip] the working space directory. In this case, it is ~/src/MyWorkSpace where /MyWorkSpace is created.
- 3) There are two BaseTools packages, one is for Windows system and another is for UNIX-Like system. Please make sure BaseTools(Unix).tar is used here.
3. See How to Set up Build environment Using EDK II with Native GCC for newer versions of Linux
- a) Please note that here the root is "~/src/MyWorkSpace" instead of "~/src/edk2"
- b) Make sure BaseTools is built and required software like iASL compiler is installed well.
- c) Some operations need switch to user "root" to execute.
- 1) Open a terminal and type "cd ~/src/MyWorkSpace" to enter the workspace directory.
- 2) Initialize the build environment by typing
- 3) Type below commands to build platforms
