This document covers only the process of building K-Meleon's source code. For documentation on building a complete K-Meleon distribution, see BuildKMeleonDistribution.

Build requirements

  • K-Meleon source code. You can either get the release version from the Download page or get the development code from the revision control system (see KMeleonCVS).
  • Mozilla SDK or compiled Mozilla code (see BuildKMeleonDistribution).
  • Microsoft Visual C++. Version 7.1 (Visual Studio 2003) is recommended, but you should be able to use version 6 with a few changes to the code. Compilation using MinGW and the free Microsoft Visual C++ toolkit is not supported. (You can, however, compile some of the plugins using these two compilers; see also KPluginsAndGcc.)


All you need to do next is build kmeleon.exe and the plugins. This should be straightforward if you use Visual Studio.

If Visual Studio complains that it cannot find a Mozilla header file, go to Project > Settings > C/C+'+ > Preprocessor > Additional include directories (VS 6) or Project > Properties > C/C+'+ > General > Additional Include Directories (VS 2003) and correct the Mozilla directories.

You should also change the output directory, Project > Settings > Link > Output file name (VS 6) or Project > Settings > Linker > General > Output File (VS 2003).
