The current best instructions for windows pymol builds were written by
Nikolay Darakev and can be found at:

http://arcib.dowling.edu/~darakevn/installerpaper.pdf

Please forward me your comments and experience and we will make
updates to this very useful document.  We use it a lot in the SBEVSL
project.  It is based on working under MINGW and works very well.

>Hello all!
>I have cross-posted this question in bionet.xtallography,
>bionet.software, bionet.molec-model and bionet.biology.computational .
>It might be helpful if you could please post your suggestions to
>bionet.software to have all answers in one place. Now my problem:
>I became aware that Pymol, a nice x-ray structure viewer, is no longer
>available as  binary but rather needs to be compiled from source code.
>While the setup under (Slackware 12.2-) Linux ran smootly with "python
>setup.py install" and "python setup2.py install", the same attempt
>didn't work under Windows. Under Windows XP, I have tried it first
>with Python 2.4, but I didn't have a C++ compiler installed. Then I
>installed Visual C++ 2008 Express, but it didn't work either. I then
>found the "build -C mingw32" for MingW32/MSYS installation suggestion
>which also didn't work. At last I have tried to compile Pymol within
>CygWin. All attempts under Windows failed. Did someone succeed with
>generating Windows binaries for Pymol 1.2.x (build 3887) and is
>willing to share the binaries and a working procedure for their
>generation with the Pymol-under-Windows community?
>Thank you very much for any helpful suggestions!
