Here you can download the ReactOS Build Environment (RosBE), the official build environment for compiling ReactOS from source code.
To  build ReactOS, you will need a suitable build environment.
+
It contains curated versions of all required build tools, such as Binutils, GCC, CMake, etc. RosBE makes sure that you can successfully build ReactOS without any hassle, and even if you hit problems, you won't be on your own.
  
As the current ReactOS Source Code is only compatible with specific versions of the compiler tools, only the official ReactOS Build Environment (RosBE) is supported by us.
+
If you like to build ReactOS using Microsoft Visual Studio instead of GCC, please install RosBE anyway.
 +
It contains some tools not available in Visual Studio (e.g. Bison and Flex) as well as some tool versions (e.g. CMake) where Visual Studio ships different ones.
  
So if you want to report problems, please first make sure that you use the latest version of the ReactOS Build Environment.

There are two ReactOS Build Environments available, a version for Windows NT-compatible Operating Systems (Windows 2000, XP, Server 2003, ...) and a version for Unix-compatible operating systems (Linux, FreeBSD, ...).

Additionally, a [[Subversion]] client is needed to obtain the current source from the ReactOS Subversion repository.
 
Read that page for more information.
 
For newer build Environments on Windows (0.3.7+), go into the empty ".\Source" directory and type "ssvn create" to download the ReactOS source.
 
 
 
After setting up your build environment, see [[Building ReactOS]] for futher information.
 
 
 
You may want to use an IDE, so refer to [[using an IDE|this page]].

All these Information can be found in RosBE, too by typing "help".

Small command which immediately sets you back to the ReactOS Source Base Directory.

Change the Architecture to build ReactOS for, for the current RosBE session.
 
Possible Architectures are right now:
 
* '''i386'''
 
* '''amd64'''
 
 
 
=== CHDEFDIR ===
 
Change the ReactOS source directory for the current RosBE session.
 
 
 
* '''previous''': Switch to the previous ReactOS source directory.

Usage: chdefgcc [PATH] [TYPE]
 
Change the MinGW/GCC directory for the current RosBE session.

Usage: raddr2line [FILE] [ADDRESS]
 
Translates program addresses into file names and line numbers to assist developers with finding specific bugs in ReactOS. If either of the options is not given you will be prompted for it.
 
 
 
* '''FILE''': This can be either a fully specified path or just the file name [you can use a partial name ie. ntdll*] of the executable to be analyzed. When using just a file the current directory and all sub-directories are searched.
 
* '''ADDRESS''': The address to be translated.
 
 
 
=== SCUT ===
 
Simple utility for managing different directory locations. SCUT can be used to quickly change from one directory to another inside the BE prompt, making it easier to go to source in another directory. Included in both the Windows and Unix BEs.
 
You can pass the following parameters to scut:
 
 
 
* '''list''': Lists all shortcuts currently available.
 
* '''add''': Adds a shortcut to the list.
 
* '''edit''': Edits a shortcut on the list.
 
* '''rem''': Removes a shortcut from the list.
 
* '''def''': Switches to the default directory location, which is enabled on every start of RosBE.
 
 
 
If you want to use a directory shortcut, for example one with the name ''trunk'', just enter ''scut trunk'' and the program will switch to the directory you set for this shortcut.

Here you can download the ReactOS Build Environment (RosBE), the official build environment for compiling ReactOS from source code. It contains curated versions of all required build tools, such as Binutils, GCC, CMake, etc. RosBE makes sure that you can successfully build ReactOS without any hassle, and even if you hit problems, you won't be on your own.

If you like to build ReactOS using Microsoft Visual Studio instead of GCC, please install RosBE anyway. It contains some tools not available in Visual Studio (e.g. Bison and Flex) as well as some tool versions (e.g. CMake) where Visual Studio ships different ones.

If you want to report problems, please first make sure that you use the latest version of the ReactOS Build Environment.
