Building MySQL and MariaDB on Windows using Visual Studio 2012 Express versus Visual Studio 2010 Express

I mentioned in a recent post (and another recent, related post) I was going to try Visual Studio 2012 Express (as opposed to VS 2010 Express) for building MySQL 5.6 and MariaDB 10.0. on Windows.

I followed the exact same steps, but MySQL 5.6.10 would not build without fatal errors in 2012 (whereas it worked fine with VS 2010). Unfortunately, the fail errors were not too descriptive, so not quite sure what to do yet to fix it. Here is a brief snippet for those interested:

Done Building Project "C:\...\bld\sql\udf_example.vcxproj" (default targets).
Done Building Project "C:\...\bld\ALL_BUILD.vcxproj" (default targets) -- FAILED.

How to Build MySQL 5.6 on Windows from Source Code

I just set up a new Windows 7 machine, and built MySQL 5.6 for the first time, so I wanted to share my steps for anyone interested.

** Prerequisites **
1. Install Microsoft Visual Studio (I installed VS 2010 Express – free)
2. Install cmake
3. Install bison (make sure no spaces in path)

** Build Instructions **

cd c:\mysql\mysql-5.6.10
mkdir bld
cd bld
cmake ..
cmake --build . --config relwithdebinfo --target package

(You don’t technically need the ‘bld’ dir, but I prefer it to keep the main dir ‘clean’. Then if you need to re-build, you can quickly just delete the whole ‘bld’ directory, and start fresh.)

Here is my actual output …
