Hi,
Please tell me the procedure of installing the compiler on WindowsXP. In the zipped folder I found only the files which can install the tool on Linux. Also the INSTALL file does not talks about installing it on Windows.

regards,
Amey

    You need to install Cygwin to run this on a Windows machine. Then build it the same way you build it for Linux.

    Unless you already have a C compiler, you'd need that anyway to do anything with the output of the ASN1 compiler.

    With a little work you can probably get this to compile under some other C compiler setup (e.g a Microsoft development suite), but that seems a lot more trouble than it's worth, especially since Cygwin is so easy to install.
