The port is compiled with the Cygnus compiler (gcc) from the same source code as the UNIX version. The source code port was mostly done by John Huddleston, USA.

GRASS on Windows is still experimental. Please expect some functionality missing or not working. Please assist us to identify and fix bugs and help us to improve the Windows port.
If you need a stable version of GRASS for production use consider installing Linux in an additional partition of your computer (dual boot setup) or dedicate a computer to linux. The Linux/Unix version of GRASS will be more stable and get better support due to the greater number of users.

For general information about running GRASS the first time read here.


You need three major requirements to run GRASS 5 on Windows:

We are searching for developers to assist in finalizing the Windows port: If you are (somewhat) experienced, join the development team to speed up the port!
