[OSRM-talk] Running on Windows

I have made an attempt to get osrm running on windows.

So I thought I would download the release for windows which has the
compiled files. This way I would not need to compile the complete system.

Then I would copy the data files from my ubuntu system and run it up and
see what happens.

The message  got was  that 'the .hsgr file was prepared with a different

So I checked. The windows build is 4.9.1 and the ubuntu is 4.9.0. I did not
think this minor change would have affected the data structure so much.

I then downloaded the 4.9.1 files and rebuilt for 4.9.1 on ubuntu. Copied
the files across to the windows system and lo and behold got the same
result. Prepared on a different build.

Now I bite the bullet and decide to try and compile the system. I have no
experience in c or c++ programming nor do I know anything about cmake or
make files.

I pull together the different packages change the various x letters to
where I have placed the files and start compiling.

I am using the batch files that come with the windows build files. I edited
them to fit where I had placed the files.

One thing that came up was TBB was missing. So I download that and set it

Boost takes a long time to build but after various messing around I think
it has build successfully.

Now I try to build osrm but is fails in the make file somewhere because it
cannot find STXXL. It is looking in a x location but I cannot find where it
is getting this information so I can change it to the correct place.

The issue at this point is that  STXXL does not compile. The log output is
as follows:

So if anyone has had any joy installing on windows and can point me in the
direction to solve this problem I shall be very grateful.

If more information is needed let me know and I shall try to send it up.
