This page and the Windows port are under development.

If you would like to help out with the Windows port you should contact Bernard or Eric for details.

Until the port is released it is highly recommended that you DO NOT follow these instructions without first contact either of these two people first to check the status.

Paparazzi on Windows

The Windows port of the Paparazzi project is primarily aimed at enabling people who don't have access to a Linux or MacOS X computer to use Paparazzi under Windows.

The aim is to support the Windows OS and make the product easily usable on Windows for the average user, while also meeting the goal of portability of any and all development work undertaken by the Windows user base in extending and building upon Paparazzi.

There are many conflicting points in this previous statement and it must be pointed out that this port will not be using a full windows tool chain and any and all development should use the provided tool chains.
