I am following the guide on Compiling TigerVNC for Windows but I think it is outdated.
I did use a recent commit (00dc3c0c8d14d2d281e9e273f78abe6d44ed537e) then the example in the guide.

I am getting the following error when I try the cmake:

CMake Error: Could not create named generator MinGW Makefiles

Generators

  Ninja                                                       = Generates build.ninja files.

  Sublime Text 2 - Unix Makefiles       = Generates Sublime Text 2 project files.

I also tried cmake -G "MSYS Makefiles" but that is not on the list.

Any ideas on fixing this? Or is there a alternative guide I should use?

It sounds like there is something broken in the build environment you
are using. Where did you get it? From msys2.org?

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?

Correct, directly from the msys2.org website.

Hmmm... That's odd. We did a test build just the other day and had no
issues.

Would you mind giving the exact steps you took to install and start
msys, as well as prepare the TigerVNC build?

Samuel, could you please compare with what you did once that is in place?
