Subject Re: Trying to building Thrift 0.9.0 with MinGW64 on Windows (UNCLASSIFIED)
Date Tue, 20 Nov 2012 14:55:53 GMT
If I were you, I would just use Visual Studio Express and compile it with
that. If you need 64-bit then install the Windows 7.1 SDK and use that
toolkit to build. I successfully managed to do this myself.
