Thanks to the hard work of our developers, specially dralnix, Ros BE 0.3.3 for Windows is now available. Comes with an easy to use installer and is now recomended for everyone that likes to compile ReactOS on their own.

The new Build Enviroment comes with GCC 3.4.5, the official compiler, and GCC 4.1.2, an experimental compiler which in the future it might replace the 3.x.x series, currently even tho reactos builds completly in this enviroment(yes, even explorer) it is unsupported.

The new BE has user friendly scripts that make life easier.

Here is the wiki entry about the new BE: http://www.reactos.org/wiki/index.php/H ... or_Windows

Please update to this BE, older BEs might be unsupported.

I think a lot of people (including me) don't compile ReactOS themself. I even have never tried to do it, yet. But when I have some psare time, I will try it :)

I installed it and I'm compiling the sources right now. This really is quite handy.

Idea for an additional feature: It would be cool to know how long it took to compile.

BTW: I think the green looks cool.

Well, I will soon add a new step-by-step installation information which will help all new builders to get a boot start.

To make a clean bootcd (make clean and make bootcd takes between 40 and 60 mins on my computer)

I always get this before each make and the logs are created in my base directionary.
C:\Programme\RosBE\tee.exe: 4%DATERAW:~3,: Invalid argument
C:\Programme\RosBE\tee.exe: 2%DATERAW:~0,: Invalid argument
Also this does not work.
make clean & make

Change or remove this line at the beginning of rosbe.cmd.

vdk integration for make install would be nice.
