I'd like to try building the Bitcoin core source in Windows. The instructive materials I've found take too much for granted. What environment needs to be installed before building? Can it be built in Visual Studio, or is it one of those cross-compilers like MingGW that compiles code originally written for Linux so it can be executed in Windows?

    Generally all release builds are cross compiled from Linux, so you might struggle to find reliable material on doing so (it might even be impossible, I don't know). – Anonymous Dec 23 '15 at 0:00
