These directories contain scripts to help build and
package OpenVPN and its dependencies for various
hardware platforms and operating systems. You do not
need any of these scripts if you're building a native
version of OpenVPN on a UNIX-like or Windows operating

Thorough documentation is available in the OpenVPN wiki:



The "generic" subdir contains scripts to cross-compile
OpenVPN using mingw_w64 (e.g. Linux -> Windows).

The "windows-msi" subdir contains scripts to build and package OpenVPN on Windows for Windows.

The "windows-nsis" subdir contains scripts to cross-compile and package OpenVPN for Windows.

Please refer to the README files in the subdirectories for further information.


The "generic/patches" directory contains patches applied
to OpenVPN or its dependencies ("products") before
starting the build. The product name is determined from
the first part of the patch filename before a dash ("-").

Currently patches are blindly applied regardless of the production version. This is mostly a problem with OpenSSL where differences between releases may be large enough to cause patching failures. In those cases the offending patch can be safely disabled. In particular, OpenSSL 1.1.0j requires a Makefile patch that will fail on OpenSSL 1.1.1. That patch will be removed once upstream has fixed the problem.
