 2015-03-16, 22:50 #1 mu5tan6   Mar 2015 22 Posts Windows command line Has anyone ever built mPrime for Windows? I would really prefer a command line version over the GUI implementation. I need to write a script to automate starting a series of benchmarks (including Prime95) and its just easier and more reliable if I can use the command line. I am in the process of attempting to build it myself but it is proving more work than I had anticipated. Thanks

No I haven't. Is there some mode that lets it operate without being installed as a service?

That what I was gonna suggest yesterday, but figured I'd wait for you to comment first.

Is the performance of the Linux-exe-running-under-MinGW-on-Windows similar to that of the Win64 binary?

I would think so, but I haven't heard of anyone confirming my hypothesis.

Did you recompile it? You can't use a normal Linux binary from what I know.
