mlvirtmanager on Windows using the MinGW port of OCaml. It's quite
likely that it will also work under VC++, but I have not tested this.
+You should make sure that your $PATH (environment variable) contains
+the names of the directories containing all required DLLs, in
+particular you will require:
+ libvirt-*.dll (from libvirt)
+ libgnutls-*.dll (from GnuTLS)
+ libgcrypt-*.dll
+ libgpg-error-*.dll
+ libtasn1-*.dll
+ libxdr.dll (from libxdr)
+ libxml2-*.dll (from libxml2)
+ and, a multitude of DLLs from GTK if you want to run mlvirtmanager
+You can use a tool such as Dependency Walker to find/check the
+locations of dependent libraries.
To build the Windows installer, you will need NSIS. Then do:
./configure --with-nsis=/c/Progra~1/NSIS
