# WebScaleSQL on Windows? I wish, but not quite yet, it seems …

For fun, I tried building WebScaleSQL on Windows, even though it’s not [yet?] a support platform.

Using the following (as I would to build MySQL/MariaDB):

```cd c:\mysql\webscalesql-5.6.16
mkdir bld
cd bld
cmake ..
cmake --build . --config relwithdebinfo --target package```

I end up with:

```...
238 Warning(s)
110 Error(s)
Time Elapsed 00:05:08.53```

Looking through the output, the main error is this:

```C:\mysql\webscalesql-5.6.16\include\atomic_stat.h(33):
fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'atomic':
No such file or directory
[C:\mysql\webscalesql-5.6.16\bld\storage\innobase\innobase.vcxproj]```

Of course the directory does exist, and permissions are correct.

C:\mysql\webscalesql-5.6.16\include\atomic_stat.h contains the following line:

`#include <atomic>`

And this exists:

`C:\mysql\webscalesql-5.6.16\include\atomic`

So there must be some reason Windows doesn’t like that include. As far as I can tell, most other includes specify an exact file, and not a directory.

I tried replacing the single include by specifying each .h file included in atomic\, but that resulted in many more errors (776).

If any ideas, please feel free to share. And/or if this is futile, fine to mention that also.

## One thought on “WebScaleSQL on Windows? I wish, but not quite yet, it seems …”

a) This is futile.
b) You need Visual Studio 2013 , atomic header comes with it
c) angle brackets after #include are used for the file in include path, not relative to current files directory.
