Hiya,

I think it would be tricky, and a lot of work, but it probably could be done.

The build system of Visopsys is designed to be used in Linux/Unix environments. I haven't built it under Windows for many years.

You'd need a set of Unix-like tools, such as cygwin with gcc (djgpp?) and a DOS-based version of NASM (I don't actually know whether such a thing exists).

If you want to keep Windows on your main machine, and you don't want to install Linux as a dual-boot, then it might be easier to try installing Linux inside a virtual machine (Virtual PC, VirtualBox, VmWare, etc) running on a Windows host, and building Visopsys from within that.

Andy

This page seems to link to a couple of solutions for GCC on Windows, one of which is cygwin which I mentioned earlier

What happens if you type unzip the Visospys source zipfile, change into that directory, and type 'make' ?

(the errors you're seeing are because you're trying to execute the Makefile, instead of running the 'make' program which uses the Makefile)
