 Windows building readme
-This readme outlines the instructions for building 
-MySQL for Windows staring from version 5.1.
-This readme does not apply to MySQL versions 5.0 
-or ealier.
 The Windows build system uses a tool named CMake to generate build files for
 a variety of project systems.  This tool is combined with a set of jscript
 files to enable building of MySQL for Windows directly out of a bzr clone.
-For relevant information, please refer to
-The steps required are below.
-Step 1:
-Install a Windows C++ compiler.  If you don't have one, you can use
-the free compiler "Visual C++ 2005 express edition", which from Cmake
-point of view is same as Visual studio 8:
-Step 2
-Download and install CMake.  It can be downloaded from 
-Once it is installed, modify your path to make sure you can execute
-the cmake binary.
-Step 3
-Download and install bison for Windows.  It can be downloaded from
-  Please download using
-the link named "Complete package, excluding sources".  This includes an
-installer that will install bison.  After the installer finishes, modify
-your path so that you can execute bison.
-(As an alternative you can take the sql_yacc.yy and sql_yacc.h files from a
-matching mysql tar distribution and drop them into the sql directory just
-before you start the build)
-Step 4
-One of the nice CMake features is "out-of-source" build support, which 
-means not building in the source directory, but in dedicated build 
-directory. This keeps the source directory clean and allows for more than 
-single build tree for the same source tree (e.g debug and release, 32 and 
-64 bit etc). We'll create subdirectory "bld" in the source directory for 
-this purpose. Clone your bzr tree to any location you like.
-Step 5
-From the root of your installation directory use cmake . -L to see the 
-various configuration parameters.
-So the command line could look like:
-cmake .. -G "target" -DWITH_INNOBASE_STORAGE_ENGINE=1
-The recommended way of configuring would be to use -DBUILD_CONFIG=mysql_release
-to build binaries exactly the same as the official MySQL releases. 
-Step 6
-From the root of your installation directory/bzr clone, you can
-use cmake to compile the sources.  Use cmake --help when necessary.
-Before you start building the sources, please remove the old build area
-created from an earlier run and start afresh.
-C:\> del bld 
-C:\> md bld 
-C:\> cd  bld 
-C:\> cmake .. -G "target name" -DBUILD_CONFIG=mysql_release
-For Example:
-To generate the Win64 project files using Visual Studio 9, you would run
-cmake .. -G "Visual Studio 9 2008 Win64" 
-Other target names supported using CMake 2.6 patch 4 are:
-  Visual Studio 7              "Visual Studio 7 .NET 2003"
-  Visual Studio 8              "Visual Studio 8 2005"
-  Visual Studio 8 (64 bit)     "Visual Studio 8 2005 Win64"
-  Visual Studio 9              "Visual Studio 9 2008"
-  Visual Studio 9 (64 bit)     "Visual Studio 9 2008 Win64"
-For generating project files using Visual Studio 10, you need CMake 2.8
-or higher and corresponding target names are
-  Visual Studio 10              "Visual Studio 10" 
-  Visual Studio 10 (64 bit)     "Visual Studio 10 Win64" 
-Step 7
-From the root of your bzr clone, start your build.
-For Visual Studio, execute mysql.sln.  This will start the IDE
-and you can click the build solution menu option.
-Alternatively, you could start the build from command line as follows
-devenv mysql.sln /build relwithdebinfo
-Current issues
-1. After changing configuration (eg. adding or removing a storage engine), it
-may be necessary to clean the build tree to remove any stale objects.
-2. To use Visual C++ Express Edition you also need to install the Platform SDK.
-Please see this link:
-At step 5 you only need to add the libraries advapi32.lib and user32.lib to
-the file "corewin_express.vsprops" in order to avoid link errors.
