Evolution on windows

with 3 comments

Since many of them seemed interested to run Evolution on their windows box, here it comes
http://www.gnome.org/~pchen/bharath_windows_installers/

This is the 2.26.3 version of Evolution. The installers are generated using NSIS scripts with the best LZMA compressor. I had previously released a stable installer for the 2.24 version but that never blossomed up. The reason I never added the debugs in the installers. This time the Evolution and Exchange installers are separated out and have the debugs for Gtkhtml, Evolution-Data-Server, Evolution and Exchange packages. So hit us with the traces if you face any crashes/issues and we would look at fixing them.

Thanks to Tor and Fridrich for all the porting. A special thanks to Fridrich Strba for setting up the openSUSE build project
(http://fridrich.blogspot.com/2009/04/hundred-packages-in-windowsmingwwin32.html) for making the process of building cross compile packages so much more easier. A 1-click install process to have access to the ported binaries was more than one could ask for.

We’ll look into porting the never stable 2.28 version as and when we find time, but would be some time very soon 🙂 So do watch out for the updates that are to follow.

  1. How about uploading them to http://ftp.gnome.org or gnuwin32?

  2. Somebody has been ported the Evolution 2.28: http://www.dipconsultants.com/evolution/, but it has some bugs, partially because a wrong Gtk version. I experienced similar problems (random crashing, copy-paste problems) with Pidgin when i used it some Gtk versions.

    I think the most important thing is packaging all required DLL, because i found some Evolution installers what doesn’t do it, and I wouldn’t like hunting for e.g. Gnome DLLs. I will see your Evolution package.

  3. This was an old post, sorry about that. We now have 2.31.3 ported onto windows. Fridrich has been doing a lot of work on it. The LZMA compressed installer now builds for every dot release of Evolution in the openSUSE Build Sevice. You can download it from here,

    http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/windows:/mingw:/win32:/EXPERIMENTAL/openSUSE_Factory/noarch/mingw32-evolution-installer-2.31.3.1-27.2.noarch.rpm

    Read more about it on,
    http://fridrich.blogspot.com/2010/05/experimental-evolution-installer-for.html

    Let us know if it has any issues.

    @foo, sure. We’ll move the installer to http://ftp.gnome.org once it builds in the Build Service for every dot release.
