    1717Windows users can use [http://www.mingw.org MinGW] based RTEMS tools.  These tools will generate the same application code for RTEMS as the tools on Linux or Cygwin.  MinGW tools use the native Windows runtime rather than access Windows via the POSIX interface Cygwin provides.  MinGW tools are faster than the Cygwin equivalent and are not confused by Cygwin mount points.  Compiler errors will show a Windows path rather than a Cygwin path and so do not confuse native Windows editors.

    19 The RTEMS MinGW Tools are packaged in Windows installers.  The latest tools can be accessed using the top level installer.  It will install the common files and present you with a selection box for the targets you wish to install.  The installer will check to see if you already have the target installer present and if present it will not download it again and will install the one you already have.
     19The RTEMS MinGW Tools are not currently packaged in installers. The installers stopped around RTEMS 4.9 when the MinGW tools started to be built as part of the binary tool package. This means you need to manually step through the process. It is not difficult, how-ever it is not an easy installer.
