Yes it is possible to execute distcc on Windows operating system, but
not from scratch...
You may install cygwin on a Windows computer with the distcc package.
Afterward you will just need the following files:
distcc.exe (4 host)
distccd.exe (4 server)
you can add all this files into an directory and declare it in your
Now most of the Windows make do not natively support distcc because
windows can not handle /cygdrive/
So you got to possibilities:
1. using cygwin to compile your project.
2. writing a wrapper to you compiler call (see example.c) where you
define the path of your compiler.
now you should be ready to define the following environement variables:
CCACHE_DIR=c:/tmp/ccache (optional just if you want to use CCache)
you can launch the distcc on your servers:
distccd --allow 172.16.128.0/24 --allow 172.16.126.0/24 --daemon
--log-file=c:/tmp/distcc/logdistccd.txt --nice 6 --no-detach
in a hosts file (located in DISTCC_DIR) do not forget enter your
different hosts starting with localhost.
I hope this could help you
