## Windows
We no longer support compilation on Windows. To use the unstable version of Dynare on a Windows system, please download it from the [Dynare website](
- Install [MSYS2]( (pick the 64-bit version)
- Run a MSYS MinGW 64-bit shell
- Install all needed dependencies:
pacman -S git autoconf automake-wrapper bison flex make tar texinfo mingw-w64-x86_64-gcc mingw-w64-x86_64-gcc-fortran mingw-w64-x86_64-boost mingw-w64-x86_64-gsl mingw-w64-x86_64-matio mingw-w64-x86_64-openblas
- *Optional:* compile install `ctangle`, needed for the k-order MEX file and for
Dynare++ (*i.e.* if you want to solve models at order ≥ 3)
mkdir cweb
cd cweb
tar xf ../cweb.tar.gz
make ctangle
mkdir -p /usr/local/bin
cp ctangle.exe /usr/local/bin/
cd ..
- *Optional:* compile and install SLICOT, needed for the `kalman_steady_state`
MEX file
tar xf slicot_5.0+20101122.orig.tar.gz
cd slicot-5.0+20101122
make FORTRAN=gfortran OPTS="-O2 -fno-underscoring -fdefault-integer-8" LOADER=gfortran
mkdir -p /usr/local/lib
cp slicot.a /usr/local/lib/libslicot64_pic.a
cd ..
- Clone and prepare the Dynare sources:
git clone --recursive
cd dynare
autoreconf -si
- Configure Dynare:
./configure --with-boost-system=boost_system-mt --with-boost-filesystem=boost_filesystem-mt --with-slicot=/usr/local --with-matlab=<…> MATLAB_VERSION=<…> --disable-octave
where the path and version of MATLAB are specified. Note that you should not
put spaces in the MATLAB path, so you probably want to use something like `C:\Progra~1\MATLAB\…`.
- Compile:
*Note:* The above assumes that you have a 64-bit version of MATLAB. It can be
adapted to a 32-bit MATLAB with the following modifications:
- run the MSYS MinGW 32-bit shell
- replace "x86_64" by "i686" in packages names on the `pacman` command-line
- for SLICOT, remove the `-fdefault-integer-8` option, and instead copy the
library into `/usr/local/lib/libslicot_pic.a`
*Note:* Compiling the MEX files for Octave and the documentation under MSYS2 is
currently not supported.
