Hi Frank,
Using gcc with code blocks and have both 32 and 64 bit versions. I can use the make file as you pointed out. Thanks!

I don't think the version matters -- the code is the same (at least
for the 1.13.3 version I had downloaded).  There may have been
some different batch files or shell scripts in the .zip vs. the tar.gz,
but the code itself was the same.

Which specific compiler are you using?  You had mentioned
CodeBlocks.  I think people often use it with gcc, but that it works
with a number of compilers.

I just used (64-bit) mingw-w64 with command-line (no IDE)
mingw32-make (Yes, the version of make that comes with the
mingw-w64 toolchain is call mingw32-make.) to drive mingw-w64's
g++ and ar.

I would say just start compiling, and with the exception of the two
issues I mentioned before, just make the obvious one-line patches
as they come up.

Happy QuickFIX Hacking!
