-The prerequisites for compiling for Windows are included in the git package.+The prerequisites for compiling for Windows are included in the git package. You have to provide a framework like ''​Visual Studio''​ and have to install ''​CMake''​ and ''​grep''​. For ''​grep''​ you might pick "​Complete package, except sources"​ from [[http://​gnuwin32.sourceforge.net/​packages/​grep.htm|here]]. It's recommended to install this grep as an adminstrator and then by hand look for grep's bin-path and add this to the systemwide PATH environment variable (this grep installer does //not// do this for you). For ''​CMake''​ look [[https://​cmake.org/​download/​|here]]. 
 + 
 +If you have all the tools together, clone a ''​pilight''​ git repository to your local disk, open a windows ''​command line prompt''​ and change directory to where your local ''​pilight''​ repository remains. Then run <​code>​CMake .</​code>​ which will create all your framework specific "​makefiles"​ needed to compile and build ''​pilight''​.
