Directions for producing an environment in which to build Kerberos for Windows version 4.2

  • Install 64-bit Windows 10.
  • Install Visual Studio 2017 Community.
    • Check "Desktop development with C++".
    • Check "MFC and ATL support".
    • After installing, locate the Visual Studio 2017 menu under the start menu, and pin the x64 and x86 Native Tools Command Prompt entries to the task bar for e
  • Install the chocolatey package manager from https://chocolatey.org/install (by pasting the PowerShell command line into an administrative powershell). Install the following packages:
 choco install wixtoolset -y
 choco install strawberryperl -y
 choco install git -y -params '"/GitAndUnixToolsOnPath"'
 choco install emacs -y
 choco install windbg -y
  • Add wix to the path.
    • search for System (control panel) and run it.
    • advanced system settings
    • environment variables (button at bottom)
    • click on wix, copy value.
    • click on path, click edit, click new, paste value and add "\bin".

Follow the instructions in src/windows/README to perform a build. NODEBUG can be set in the environment ("set NODEBUG=1") to avoid having to specify it on the nmake command line each time. For MIT-specific builds, also "set MIT_INTERNAL=1" or specify it on the nmake command line when building the installer.
