For those who haven't noticed the devs have managed to cross-compile Windows
binaries under Linux using MinGW.

I think these are fantastic news for two reasons: 

1) because MinGW is an open source C compiler and is the obvious choice for
an open source office suite like LO (doesn't make any sense relying on
Microsoft Visual C++ compiler...)

2) because most (all?) LO devs run Linux and being able to create Windows
binaries for the large (but compiler avert) mass of Windows users without
leaving their "habitat" is fantastic

Meanwhile, I downloaded the latest package from

After unpacking the tar to replace my LibO-dev 3.5 (the working master from
13-09) I found two problems:

1) The icons are still missing as reported on this topic

2) I ran into the following error message:
The application cannot be started. Cannot get C++ to binary UNO mapping!

And loading stopped. I will check further on this one ;)

If anyone has any tips, fire them away!
