    121121With Cygwin [http://cygwin.com/] installed, the CLI tools (transmission-remote, transmissioncli) and the daemon can be built easily.

    123 No patches needed(*), all the recent versions of Transmission built almost out-of-the-box, and the CLI tools work better under Cygwin that those built with MinGW.

    125125(*) With version 2.0 and above, '''libevent''' is not bundled and it's also not in Cygwin distribution... so you need to build it (which is as easy as ./configure, make install).  To build transmission you may need to add LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/lib" to the configure script (LIBEVENT_LIBS doesn't seem to work when it comes to build all the test programs).  Additionally '''libutp''' needs deleting -ansi on the Makefile.

    129 With a MinGW [http://mingw.org/] development environment, the Gtk and the Qt GUI applications can be built.  The CLI tools can also be built, and in general work fine, but may fail if you use foreign characters as parameters (MinGW doesn't pass those parameters, in fact the program receives garbage).
