Hi

I have written an application on Linux and I need to run it on Windows. How can I make it possible to run on windows? I am using gcc on Suse Linux to compiler and the program is written in C/C++.

Thanks in advance

    it may be possible to recompile the source code and make a windows executable. you wil need a windows compiler for this. you can try Dev C++: http://www.bloodshed.net/devcpp.html or find another one through google

    you could also use line to run a unmodified linux executable on a windows systems. download it from

    http://sourceforge.net/projects/line

    another option is to use cygwin, which is a set of tools aimed at helping programmers to port Unix/Linux software to the windows operating system. http://cygwin.com/

    or you can install linux on your windows machine using coLinux
