Build the Mongo Shell on Windows

You can build the mongo shell with either SCons or a Visual Studio 2010 project file.


scons mongo.exe

Visual Studio 2010 Project File

A VS2010 vcxproj file is available for building the shell. From the mongo directory, open shell/msvc/mongo.vcxproj.

The project file currently supports only 32-bit builds of the shell. (SCons can do 32- and 64-bit.)
