Hi all,

What's the latest news on running osrm on Windows? Is there any documentation on how to run it on Windows, I've searched extensively, without finding much (apart from this page: https://github.com/Project-OSRM/osrm-backend/wiki/Windows-Compilation.
I would prefer to run on unix/linux, but that will probably not be possible in production, so the windows build may be my only option there.

I downloaded the latest build from this page: http://build.project-osrm.org
I could not find any info on how to install the binaries, so I just unzipped the build.zip file into a directory on my hard drive.
When I try to run osrm-expand on the file: http://download.geofabrik.de/europe/netherlands-latest.osm.pbf
it crashes after two seconds (reproducible).
The same file can be expanded without problems on OSX (where I have osrm installed through homebrew).
The Win box has a full install of VS 2015 enterprise.

any pointers would be greatly appreciated

best regards,
Mark Hagers <mark at marksman-do.nl>
