Jagoancoin docs


Below are some notes on how to build Jagoancoin Core for Windows.
The options known to work for building Jagoancoin Core on Windows are:
  • On Linux, using the Mingw-w64 cross compiler tool chain. Ubuntu Bionic 18.04 is required and is the platform used to build the Jagoancoin Core Windows release binaries.
  • On Windows, using Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL) and the Mingw-w64 cross compiler tool chain.
  • On Windows, using a native compiler tool chain such as Visual Studio.
Other options which may work, but which have not been extensively tested are (please contribute instructions):
  • On Windows, using a POSIX compatibility layer application such as cygwin or msys2.

Installing Windows Subsystem for Linux

With Windows 10, Microsoft has released a new feature named the Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL). This feature allows you to run a bash shell directly on Windows in an Ubuntu-based environment. Within this environment you can cross compile for Windows without the need for a separate Linux VM or server. Note that while WSL can be installed with other Linux variants, such as OpenSUSE, the following instructions have only been tested with Ubuntu.
This feature is not supported in versions of Windows prior to Windows 10 or on Windows Server SKUs. In addition, it is available only for 64-bit versions of Windows.
Full instructions to install WSL are available on the above link. To install WSL on Windows 10 with Fall Creators Update installed (version >= 16215.0) do the following:
  1. 1.
    Enable the Windows Subsystem for Linux feature
  • Open the Windows Features dialog (OptionalFeatures.exe)
  • Enable 'Windows Subsystem for Linux'
  • Click 'OK' and restart if necessary
  1. 1.
    Install Ubuntu
  • Open Microsoft Store and search for "Ubuntu 18.04" or use this link
  • Click Install
  1. 1.
    Complete Installation
  • Open a cmd prompt and type "Ubuntu1804"
  • Create a new UNIX user account (this is a separate account from your Windows account)
After the bash shell is active, you can follow the instructions below, starting with the "Cross-compilation" section. Compiling the 64-bit version is recommended, but it is possible to compile the 32-bit version.


Follow the instructions for Windows in build-cross


After building using the Windows subsystem it can be useful to copy the compiled executables to a directory on the Windows drive in the same directory structure as they appear in the release .zip archive. This can be done in the following way. This will install to c:\workspace\jagoancoin, for example:
make install DESTDIR=/mnt/c/workspace/jagoancoin
You can also create an installer using:
make deploy
