You would need to take the above patch and see if it applies to Samba
4.8 and if anything needs to be changed.

This is fairly straight-forward:

git clone git://git.samba.org/samba.git
cd samba

Make sure to have libraries installed for compiling Samba, see:

Also install the mingw compiler for building the exe.


./configure --nonshared-binary=winexe

should then be the static Linux binary and
the Windows service.
