Re: [Bacula-devel] Michael's Bacula Request


Unfortunately, when it comes to building and modifying the build process for 
the Win32 client, you are pretty much on your own.  We do supply all the 
scripts that we use; the tar files for all the 3rd party Open Source code; 
and it is documented in src/win32/README.* (we use README.mingw32).  A good 
number of people have succeeded in building it themselves.

If you want professional help, see me off-list ...

All the above can be done but require a bit of script changes.

This is already part of the installation process.

See the README mentioned above, but I don't think that it talks about 
modifying the installer -- you will need to read the code in
