C/C++ libraries for Windows

Compiling your program on Windows is often a nightmare when it includes external libraries. Since I have spent some time at sorting out this problem, I thought it would be useful to share here the compiled versions of some common libraries.

Just unzip the archives in a folder, and, in your program, add the “include” directory and link to the relevant libraries in the “lib” directory. Note that you generally need to use the same compiler as the one that I used to generate the files below.

Boost binaries


GNU Scientific Library binaries


libtiff binaries


zlib binaries
