    Building on Windows

    Introduction

    This page gives instructions for building Virtuoso Open-Source Edition on Windows 32- or 64-bit platforms.

    Note: The build process on Windows is rather more complex than on other platforms, so we make pre-built Windows packages available in the SourceForge Project. We recommend you use the latest build available for your platform. As of 2018-02-01, the latest available VOS binaries for Windows are 64-bit (x86_64) version 7.2.4.2 (built 2016-04-25) and 32-bit (x86) version 6.1.8 (built 2013-12-11).

    Prerequisites

    You must have the following development tools and software installed:

    • Microsoft Visual Studio 2003 or later for 32-bit builds; 2005 or later for 64-bit builds
      Note: The Virtuoso projects and solution are maintained under VS 2003, so they must be converted to the VS 2005 format if you are using VS 2005 or later. To do this, just open the solution with your VS, and you will be asked to confirm project conversion. Then follow the instructions on screen.
    • Cygwin bash with developer tools (gawk, flex, bison) installed.
      • Bison must be version 1.875b; newer versions (2.x+) are not compatible.
    • Active Perl, available from http://www.activestate.com/ActivePerl
    • OpenSSL version 0.97 static libraries for Windows and header files.

    Optionally, you may want to also install:

    Building the openssl library

    The OpenSSL library must be built as a static library using Visual Studio. Detailed instructions for this build can be found in the INSTALL.W32 document in the OpenSSL source distribution.

    IMPORTANT: by default the OpenSSL library is built using MSVCRT compile flags, which lead to conflicts when linking the Virtuoso Open-Source binaries. To resolve these conflicts, after unpacking the OpenSSL source tarball, you must edit the <OpenSSL dir</util/pl/VC-32.pl and change the "cflags" to use the "/MT" and "/MTd" compiler switches instead of "/MD" and "/MDd".

    Finally, the libeay32.lib and ssleay32.lib from <OpenSSL dir>/out32 and files from <OpenSSL dir>/inc32/openssl must be copied to <Virtuoso Open Source dir>/win32/openssl/.

    Microsoft Visual Studio settings

    For Visual Studio to find the Cygwin developer tools (gawk, bison, flex), the path to the Cygwin programs (e.g., c:\cygwin\bin) must be added to standard settings.

    To do this, execute the following steps:

    1. Open the IDE
    2. Open "Tools", then "Options"
    3. In the "Options" menu select "Projects" settings
    4. From "Projects" settings select "VC++ Directories"
    5. Add the Cygwin programs path to the list for "Executable files", before <WIN>/system32, so VS will use cygwin's "find" command
    6. Confirm the changes.

    Known issues

    • Bison version 2.1 that comes with Cygwin bash generates buggy code. To resolve this, you must either
      • install an older version of bison (1.875b is recommended) or
      • edit the generated files (sql3.c and turtle_p.c in <Virtuoso Open Source dir>/libsrc/Wi) and remove the ';' after the start of the 'yyparse' function:

        ... #else int yyparse () ; <-- remove this #endif #endif ...

    • The OLE DB Provider for Virtuoso cannot be built under VS 2005; it should be disabled.

    2. From the VS.NET 2003 command prompt, go to <Virtuoso Open Source dir>/win32.
    3. Run 'perl mkperlenv.pl'; this should produce output like:

      PERL_CFLAGS=... PERL_LDFLAGS=...

    4. Add the PERL_CFLAGS and PERL_LDFLAGS in the environment with values printed from the step above.
    5. Start the Visual Studio IDE and enable the hosting_perl target in the solution.
    6. Build the hosting_perl plugin.

    Building the Virtuoso Open-Source Python hosting plugin

    1. Make sure Active Python is installed
    2. From the VS.NET 2003 command prompt, go to <Virtuoso Open Source dir>/win32.
    3. Run 'python mkpythonenv.py'; this should produce output like:

      PYTHON_CFLAGS=... PYTHON_LDFLAGS=...

    4. add the PYTHON_CFLAGS and PYTHON_LDFLAGS in the environment with values printed from the step above
    5. Start the Visual Studio IDE and enable the hosting_python target in the solution.
    6. Build the hosting_python plugin

    Building the Virtuoso Open-Source Imagemagick plugin

    1. Install the ImageMagick library, available from http://www.imagemagick.org/
    2. add the IM_PATH in the environment with a value of ImageMagick installation directory
    3. Start the Visual Studio IDE and enable the im target in the solution
    4. Build the ImageMagick plugin

    Testing your build

    1. Make sure that following binaries exist in <Virtuoso Open Source dir>/win32/[Release|Debug]:
      • virtuoso-t.exe
      • isql.exe
      • blobs.exe
      • ins.exe
      • scroll.exe
    2. Open a Cygwin bash shell
    3. Change directory to <Virtuoso Open Source dir>/
    4. Execute the following commands (Note: replace in $PATH the 'Release' with 'Debug' if you are going to run the tests using debug binaries.)

      export HOME=`pwd` export PATH=$HOME/win32/Release:$PATH export BLOBS=blobs.exe export INS=ins.exe export ISQL=isql.exe export PORT=5555 export ENABLE_MTS_TEST=0 export SCROLL=scroll.exe export GETDATA=getdata.exe

    5. Change directory to <Virtuoso Open Source dir>/binsrc/tests/suite
    6. Run the tests:

      ./test_server virtuoso-t

    Installation

    ODBC Driver registration

    Perform the following steps to register the ODBC Driver for Virtuoso:

    1. Open a Command prompt
    2. Navigate to the directory where the virtodbc.dll (Virtuoso Open Source ODBC Driver) is built.
    3. execute:

      regsvr32 virtodbc.dll

    4. A confirmation dialog stating that the driver was registered should be displayed.

    Running the Demo Database

    1. Make a folder, e.g., c:\dbs\virtuoso.
    2. Copy the Demo database (demo.db) and default demo.ini file to the new directory.

      cd c: cd \dbs\virtuoso copy <Virtuoso Open Source dir>\binsrc\samples\demo\demo.db copy <Virtuoso Open Source dir>\binsrc\samples\demo\demo.ini

    3. Create a Windows service to run the Virtuoso Open-Source server:

      SET PATH=%PATH%;<irtuoso Open Source dir>\win32\Release virtuoso-t -c demo -I Demo -S create virtuoso-t -c demo -I Demo -S start

      To connect with the command line SQL tool,

      isql 1112 dba dba

      gives a SQL> prompt.

    To switch to the demo database, containing the Microsoft Northwind sample tables, type:


        SQL> use Demo;
    

    The help command in iSQL can give further instructions.
