Many open source computer forensic tools can be cross-compiled with MinGW. This allows you to create Windows executable directly from a Macintosh computer or Linux machine without using the Microsoft VC++ environment.

Installing MinGW

On a Mac using MacPorts
$ sudo port selfupdate
$ sudo port install i386-mingw32-binutils i386-mingw32-gcc  \
                    i386-mingw32-libunicows i386-mingw32-runtime \

note: If you get the error message 'warnings treated as errors' you will need to find the Makefile where -Werror is defined and erase it
