Hi I understand your frustration, as I was almost at the same point.
Just compiling the current version is a little painful, especially if one mixes the fact
the the documentation sometimes omits some minor details (or doesn't make them obvious enough for a newbie)
and the fact, that sometimes and adds some own errors.

Hi everybody,
I spend few hours in trying to compile Linphone on Windows Desktop. 
So, I have an offer - I will pay 100 USD for anyone who will provide me with detail instruction how to make it.

I will summarise project description below:
Compile last Linphone version in to Windows Desktop from source code
As a project result should be step by step instruction how to:
1. Set Up build environment
2. Sources download
3. build GUI and console Linpone versions.

I'll give you some very first information:

1.) install a recent java run time environment (e.g .from
2.) download  portableGit or MSYSGit
2.) open git-bash.bat
3.) clone the linphone repository
git clone git:// --recursive
4.) clone also the source code of the belle-sip stack
git clone git://
5.) enter the linphone directory and read very carefully the README.mingw
This should explain you how to install:
 - mingw
   I installed mingw with
   - developer-tools 2013072300
   - gcc-c++-4.8.1-4-mingw32
   - msys zip 3.0-1-msys-1.0.14
  - msys unzip-6.0-1-msys-1.0.13
  - msys wget-1.12-1 1.0.13
  - mingw base pkg (e.g. C compiler)

6.) Stay with the readme and perform the next steps in an msys shell:
you can start this by calling C:\MinGW\msys\1.0\msys.bat

 - now to download as indicated by the README
    - intltools
    - linpohonedeps
    - gtkbundle
   - the gtk outcrop theme (please note teh command to extract is "tar xvfz ...."
     and not "tar -xvfz ..." as mentioned in the README

- my versions are:
- linphone-deps-win32-20131230
- intl_tool_0.40.4-1
- gtk_bundle_2.24.10-20120208
- belle-sip commit id ce931ad1c2bfe968, but the hewad should work

If you get fonny error messages, which are relates to java during the build process, then contact me I didn't have time so far, rather busy, but I had to make a workaround by copying java.exe into a directroy, that contained no space character and that I added to the search path.

Hope this gets you started. perhaps others in this group can elaborate further or comment anything, which I might ahve missed or which is ambigoius in my answer


For base OS should be taken Windows 7 x86 version
