gEDA for MS-Windows

The gEDA suite was developed for Linux. Still, it is possible to run its applications on MS-Windows. After significant effort by a number of programmers, the windows version of the major gEDA tools are in pretty good shape. DJ Delorie regularily compiles windows binaries of the tools and offers them for download. Klaus Zipfel took the binaries and used Inno-Setup to assemble an installer for MS-Windows:

most current:

The installer contains:

  1. gaf (“gschem and friends”, i.e. gschem, gnetlist, gerbv, gattrib,…)
  2. pcb (the layout GUI)
  3. symbol and footprint libraries of the ElektronIQ
  4. a set of config files that are supposed to make all this work out of the box

Here is a gzipped tarball of geda for MS windows: geda_for_windows_build-20140418b.tar.gz
This is just the binaries freshly downloaded and cross compiled on a linux desktop. No installer, no library, no config files.

For feedback --> Mail to


These are the sources which were cross compiled on linux to yield the binaries for the above windows installer:
