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 for those interested:

c:\>cd c:\mysql\mysql-5.6.10
c:\mysql\mysql-5.6.10>mkdir bld
c:\mysql\mysql-5.6.10>cd bld
c:\mysql\mysql-5.6.10\bld>cmake ..

There you go!

The zip package (mysql-5.6.10-win32.zip in this case) will be located in bld/.

I will say that is a lot of warnings, though I’m fairly used to them on Windows. However, I plan to try VS 2012 Express to see if that makes any difference.

Hope this helps. :)
