This page describes how to build and develop crosvm on windows. If you are targeting linux, please see Building Crosvm on linux
NOTE: Following instruction assume that
- git is installed and
gitcommand exists in your
- the commands are run in powershell
mkdir C:\src cd C:\src
Obtain the source code via git clone.
git clone https://chromium.googlesource.com/crosvm/crosvm
Crosvm uses submodules to manage external dependencies. Initialize them via:
cd crosvm git submodule update --init
It is recommended to enable automatic recursive operations to keep the submodules in sync with the
main repository (But do not push them, as that can conflict with
git config submodule.recurse true git config push.recurseSubmodules no
install-deps.ps1 install the necessary tools needed to build crosvm on windows. In addition to
installing the scripts, the script also sets up environment variables.
The below script may prompt you to install msvc toolchain via Visual Studio community edition.
Set-ExecutionPolicy Unrestricted -Scope CurrentUser ./tools/install-deps.ps1
NOTE: Above step sets up enviroment variables. You may need to either start a new powershell session or reload the environemnt variables,
