Troubleshooting Building MariaDB 5.1 on Windows

This is a follow-up, troubleshooting article that goes hand-in-hand with my “Building MariaDB 5.1 on Windows Revisited” post, and covers some problems and their solutions that one might encounter when attempting to build MariaDB from source code on Microsoft Windows.

The first error I ran into was this, on my main compile step (i.e., the 2nd cmake command):

C:\Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\Microsoft.Cpp\v4.0\Microsoft.Cpp
Common.targets(151,5): error MSB6006: "cmd.exe" exited with code 1.

That in itself doesn’t tell us too much. Searching the full compile output, we find:

Generating ../../scripts/mysql_fix_privilege_tables.sql
The system cannot find the file specified.

Building MariaDB 5.1 on Windows Revisited

I previously wrote an article on Building MariaDB 5.1 on Windows, but it was about 1.5 years ago (for 5.1.60; this is for 5.1.67), so I wanted to update this a little since I’ve built it entirely from the command-line this time (as well as highlight a couple problems/solutions – which I’ll cover in a subsequent troubleshooting post). This process it quite similar to my steps for building MariaDB 5.5 and MariaDB 10.0, however it’s slightly different since 5.1 requires you run the configure.js script before running cmake. Aside from that though, things are mostly the same.

Here is the full procedure:

Download 5.1.67 MariaDB source and extract to C:\mysql\mariadb-5.1.67
cd C:\mysql\mariadb-5.1.67
cmake .
cmake …

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.
Done Building Project "c:\...\bld\package.vcxproj" (default targets) -- FAILED.

"c:\mysql\mysql-5.6.10\bld\package.vcxproj" (default target) (1) -> …
