How To Install Zlib On Windows

zlib is designed to be a free, general-purpose, legally unencumbered-- that is, not covered by any patents -- lossless data-compressionlibrary for use on virtually any computer hardware and operating system.The zlib data format is itself portable across platforms. Unlike the LZWcompression method used in Unix compress(1) and in the GIF image format,the compression method currently used in zlib essentially never expandsthe data. (LZW can double or triple the file size in extreme cases.)zlib's memory footprint is also independent of the input data and can bereduced, if necessary, at some cost in compression.Homepage

How To Install Zlib On Windows

In the directory Tools\devInstall\Windows you find the batch file buildZlibVS17.bat. This batch file takes three parameters to build the CNTK Protobuf library. The first parameter is the directory of the libzip source files you unpacked above, the second parameter is the directory of the zlib source files,the third parameter is the destination directory for the created library. In our case follow these steps from a standard Windows command prompt:

If VS2017INSTALLDIR environment variable was not set by the Visual Studio installer, set it manually. The exact installation directory depends on both the version (2017 in this case) and offering (Community, Enterprise, etc) of Visual Studio, according to the following pattern: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\\.

Launch a 64-bit Visual Studio 2017 development environment. The most convenient way is to execute the batch file vcvarsall.bat in the Visual Studio directory with the required parameters from a standard windows command shell:

2>------ Build started: Project: zlib, Configuration: Release x64 ------ 2> Creating library C:/Users/erik/Documents/zlib/1.2.8/project/zlib-1.2.8-vc10/Release/zlib.lib and object C:/Users/erik/Documents/zlib/1.2.8/project/zlib-1.2.8-vc10/Release/zlib.exp 2> inflate.obj : error LNK2019: unresolved external symbol inflate_fast referenced in function inflate 2>infback.obj : error LNK2001: unresolved external symbol inflate_fast 2>C:\Users\erik\Documents\zlib\1.2.8\project\zlib-1.2.8-vc10\Release\zlib.dll : fatal error LNK1120: 1 unresolved externals

However, I submitted [GitHub]: madler/zlib - Re enable ASM speedups on Win, (rejected on 221007) so everything below does apply (again). For possible ways to benefit from the patch (once / if it's accepted), check [SO]: How to change username of job in print queue using python & win32print (@CristiFati's answer) (at the end).

The above is a diff. See [SO]: Run / Debug a Django application's UnitTests from the mouse right click context menu in PyCharm Community Edition? (@CristiFati's answer) (Patching UTRunner section) for how to apply patches on Win (basically, every line that starts with one "+" sign goes in, and every line that starts with one "-" sign goes out). I also submitted this patch: [GitHub]: madler/zlib - Ms VisualStudio - Assembler speedups on x64, but then I closed it, as it's contained in the one at the beginning.

What assembly code is being used? There are a few in zlib's contrib directory. By the way, the stuff in the contrib directory is not part of zlib. It is just there as a convenience and is supported (or not) by those third-party contributors. What I will do is simply remove the offending code from the next distribution.

A nasty one is a SegFault (Access Violation) during decompression. For that, [GitHub]: madler/zlib - inffas32.asm struct/enum binding to zlib 1.2.9 (also included in the one at the beginning) is needed

I want to use the zlib library in my c++ project. So, I have downloaded zlib library(, I have created zlib folder under "C:\Program Files\Zlib". Then, Extract file into "C:\Program Files\Zlib".

For static library installation , include the zlibstatic.lib and directories in the linker additional libraries and directories. For dynamic library , include the zlib.lib in the linker and copy the zlib.dll to the project output directory.

Another option is to install vcpkg ( MS packager to install windows based open source projects) and use powershell command like so .\vcpkg install zlib:x64-windows-static. The zlib can be auto integrated to your project using .\vcpkg integrate install

Save this file, upload it to a web-accessible directory and browse to it. I would then do a find (Ctrl+F in Firefox) and search for zlib. That'll show you information regarding zlib if it is detected - It should be.

This package uses the source code of zlib-1.2.5 to create libraries for systems that do not have these available via other means (most Linux and Mac users should have system-level access to zlib, and no direct need for this package). See the vignette for instructions on use.

  • Download cminor-0.2.0-win-x64-setup.exe.

  • Run cminor-0.2.0-win-x64-setup.exe.

  • By default cminor is installed to C:\cminor directory. Write access is needed to the installation directory and subdirectories of the installation directory, so C:\Program Files is not a good place to install because it is read-only.

  • The installation program creates an environment variable named CMINOR_ROOT that contains path to the installation directory.

  • The installation program inserts the [installation directory]\bin directory to the end of the system PATH environment variable.

To install zlib from sources download zlib-1.2.11.tar.gz (or newer), extract it to some directory here called zlib-1.2.11 and change to zlib-1.2.11 directory. Then run make and then [sudo] make install:

To install boost from sources download boost_1_64_0.tar.bz2 (or newer), extract it to some directory here called boost_1_64_0 and change to boost_1_64_0 directory. At minimum you will need to install filesystem, iostreams and system libraries:

To install cmake you can either build it from sources or download a binary distribution on Linux x86_64: cmake-3.8.0-Linux-x86_64.tar.gz. To install the binary distribution, extract it to some directory here called cmake-3.8.0 and insert the cmake-3.8.0/bin directory to the PATH environment variable. Then run cmake --version to ensure it is of the right version.

To build Cminor from sources download cminor-0.2.0.tar.bz2 or cminor-0.2.0.tar.gz, and extract it to some directory here called cminor-0.2.0. Change to the cminor-0.2.0/cminor directory, run make and then [sudo] make install from there. By default executables are installed to /usr/bin and the virtual machine library to /usr/lib. You can install them to different location by setting the prefix in the install command: [sudo] make prefix=/where/to/install install.

Vcpkg attempts to simplify the process of installing libraries on Windows to a single command line. Furthermore, by setting up the build environment using a CMake toolchain file, Vcpkg eliminates the need to manually define paths to libraries when configuring CMake-based projects.

At the time of this writing, over 600 libraries are available in the Vcpkg ecosystem, including popular ones such as Boost, OpenCV, OpenSSL, and zlib. Vcpkg requires Visual Studio 2015 Update 3 or Visual Studio 2017.

The zlib.dll error message could apply to any program or system that might utilize the file on any of Microsoft's operating systems including Windows 11, Windows 10, Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows 2000.

Do not download zlib.dll from a "DLL download" website. There are many reasons why downloading a DLL file is a bad idea. If you need a copy of zlib.dll, it's best to obtain it from its original, legitimate source.

On most UNIX systems, it should not be necessary to set any of these variables, since the zlib and libbz2 headers and binaries are already installed in locations where they will be found automatically. On Windows, the zlib and bzip2 filters are disabled by default; to enable support for these filters, you will need to set variables indicating the location of the source files, if building from the source, or the location of the headers and binaries, if using pre-built binaries.

./configure -with-tcl --with-python --with-perl--with-includes=/c/Users/AnonymousUser/Documents/zlib-1.2.8-win32-x86_64/include --with-libraries=/c/Users/AnonymousUser/Documents/zlib-1.2.8-win32-x86_64/lib--host=x86_64-w64-mingw32 --prefix=/usr/local/pgsql_0ab9c56_debug--disable-rpath --enable-depend --enable-cassert --enable-debug--with-extra-version=_CFLAGS_O_0ab9c56 CFLAGS="-O -fno-omit-frame-pointer"

If you're installing from a repository (using a package manager), be sure to install the development version of the packages. Under Ubuntu, the following packages should suffice: libboost-all-dev build-essential zlib1g-dev

If configure gives an error like: "C++ compiler cannot create executables", it's most likely that configure couldn't find the zlib library. Verify that the zlib development files are installed, and that it's possible to link to -lz.

First, if you got libwww directly from CVSthen you must bootstrap the code beforecompiling. If you have already done that or if you started from adistribution file then you can continue installation here:

You can configure libwww in windowsconfig.h and if you are interested in the details of how we build libwwwon Windows then please read the documentation on how to install on Windows.Libwww can work with several external softwarepackages of which some you get bydefault. Here is the current list:

If HT_EXPAT is defined in the windows config.h file then libwww canuse the expat XML library for parsing XML documents. Both the RDF and the DAVmodule require thiat this option is set. A version of the precompiled expatDLL for Win32 is already included in the w3c-libwww distribution file.

If HT_ZLIB is defined in the windows config.h file then libwww canuse the zlib library forhandling the deflate content-encoding. This may cause betterperformance as we then can inflate a compressed document on the fly. Aversion of the precompiled zlibDLL for Win32 is already included in the w3c-libwww distribution file.
