Building On Windows With Visual Studio IDE

There is a collection of projects maintained for Visual Studio in build directory of GEOS source tree:

NOTE: In future, manually maintained solutions for Visual Studio may be replaced with configuration for CMake build system, so they can be generate automatically.


No configuration step should be required. If any files should be generated, such operation is configured and performed as Pre-Build Event.


  • Choose appropriate solution for your version of Visual Studio
  • Open and build


The GEOS unit tests should be executed automatically after successful build as Post-Build Event


There is no installation step configured.
