When you download the source and extract it there is a README.txt file, and that should tell you what you need and how to get it if I'm not mistaken. Happy compiling :)

I am no help with Windows as we haven't owned it for years. But this link seems to do a good job outlining what the steps are. http://dev.minetest.net/Compiling_Minet ... on_Windows

And that's why most of us run Linux. It's a lot easier to compile it (for Linux or Windows) from there. It might even be worthwhile to set up a Linux VM and use the buildbot instead of compiling on Windows.

Looks like the replies didn't answer your question, so I'll do this now.
The wiki page tells you what libraries you need in addition to the Visual Studio and CMake.
I compiled some libraries with MSVC 2010. You can use them to compile your game but I don't know if they work for 64-bit builds, so try the 32-bit first to make sure it works.

Un7zip the archive into your working directory and fill in the paths into cmake-gui like the dev wiki article says. To make sure you have selected the right file name, you can look at my setup here.

When you compiled the stuff, create a new directory where you can copypaste all the dll files and Minetest directories in.
Contact me on IRC if you have questions.

azekill_DIABLO,

If you use Windows, then Microsoft Community Visual studio should work fine. Mac, I'm not sure, and from what I have seen here, you don't use Linux.

I don't even know if you even use this any more, but I'm just sayin.

On the bright side, You can use the most shiny Windows compiler there is 8D
