This catalog is intended for most up-to-date
Run-time system requirements. Windows 2000 or
later, period. Just download and run, no additional components are
required, not even MinGW (nor notorious cygwin1.dll:-). The
only additional requirement is that growisofs.exe and
mkisofs.exe have to reside in the same directory. For your
convenience copy all executables you download here into some catalog
Usage notes. Specify your recorder unit by letter followed by colon, e.g. D:. In other words as far as specific usage instructions go, replace /dev/dvd in growisofs manual page with your recorder Windows "letter" name you are accustomed to already.
Even though the port "targets" MinGW, running growisofs under MinGW shell does not appear to be very practical, because the latter is way too brutal with children processes. To be specific it axe kills them upon Ctrl-C without giving growisofs opportunity to accomplish due termination procedure. Conveniently enough neither MinGW component is actually required at run-time and I therefore am free to recommend to run growisofs in "vanilla" CMD console window or even under Cygwin shell. In the latter case you have to restrain yourself from using path names containing Cygwin pseudo-mount points, even though it might appear tempting.
Customized mkisofs.exe binary is formally required for multi-session recordings only.
To burn as unprivileged user set up device ACL with Nero Burn Rights.
Binaries below were verified to work correctly even under Win64. In other words, there is no need for special Win64 binaries.
