For a number of reasons, i have changed my primary OS from Ubuntu to Windows. I have installed the current free version of Visual Studio as well. Is there any description of how  to build the most recent version like I found for building on Linux.

I have found an executable for 2.0 that will not mount all of my disk images. I am hoping that by building the most recent code I can get past that problem.

Thanks!

I have been trying to compile Previous under Windows 10 with MINGW64 via MSYS2 and also via Cygwin as a Win32 cross-compile, but the 'make' process always fails with: "error: unknow type name 'sigjmp_buf'; did you mean jmp_buf".

previous for windows is cross compiled from linux (with mingw64). In theory it can also be compiled with cygwin (in the past I think someone also used visualC++) but of course there might be issues...

Is there anything specific about these images that don't mount?

I'd guess they are larger than 2gb?
