These instructions are to allow users to build Avogadro from the very latest code. Be aware that Avogadro may fail to build or work properly at any given time when built from the instructions below.

Compiling Avogadro for Windows is a complex task and it is recommended that you download the pre-made installer found on the download page. For the adventurous, here are Windows Visual Studio 2008/2010 instructions that may or may not work. For various steps in the process, there may be downloadable binaries on the web. However, for completeness we build all dependencies.

There are also instructions for Linux and Mac OS X available.
