Hi, I want to compile an application on Win64, as 64 Bit.

I used MinGW and msys on Win32.

Now, I found MinGW 64, which provides gcc & g++ for Win64.
It works on Vista (bot only after SP 1), but there doesn't seem to exist an msys for Win64.

Can one use msys32 and just replace the MinGW with Win64?
Or anybody knows how to get a Win64 posix environment without installing cygwin?

Maybe even better, can you cross-compile for Win64 on Linux already? (I mean building a 64 Bit exec.)

You'd probably get better results on Windows-centric forum, or one dedicated to programming. It doesn't seem anybody knows the answer to your question.

Seems so. Cross-compiling on Linux for Win64 should however fit into the Linux section as well.
