No

I am currently writing a very small browser in my free time.
Therefore i want to use tor and privoxy as small command-line tools, to establish a connection into the onion network.
Sadly there is no command-line tool fort Win32 users of privoxy, only an overloaded gui (which is always seen in the tray).

I dont want my little browser to get complicated, so the configuration should be fully automatic without any possibility for
common users to "change values by accident".

I believe its a pain to merge all the source into a working visual studio project ...
So i am asking for this little cmd tool (since tor already got its version - "expert bundle").

Greetings,
Max

    The GUI on Windows is optional, just compile Privoxy without setting --enable-mingw32.

    Awesome!
    I am ashamed but i am not common to anything else besides visual studio compiling (at least not yet).
    For my windows convenience, are there any ready-to.use Win32 bins available at the time? I am still on my way into development, also i am very sorry if such questions are not welcome at here.

    Thank you for your really fast and accurate answer!

    Sorry for an additional comment, but i couldnt get it compiled.
    Could you offer such a non-gui bin version for windows developers?

    Im sure many applications would like to access this version without to reuquire additional custom compiling. And i see almost every user with the similar request before me had alot of problems to get it working ...

    I currently have no access to Windows.

    If you need help with the compilation, please use one of the mailing lists.

    It's also possible, that one of the other subscribers may provide you with a binary, but of course I can't promise anything.

    Most similar topics were closed by inactivity, but the problem of compiling could almost never be solved.

    The 2 guys who managed to compile it without gui on windows are no longer active with their accounts.

    It would be really nice if anyone who managed to do so could publish the result, maybe also as so called "expert bundle" (hint: usable binary without any gui components --- additionaly it would be nice to use config from same folder only - win32).

    I am waiting for this special reply :)
    Thank you for your help fabian!
