+PCC will build on Microsoft Windows (check the mailing list for patches to mkext.c)
+
+Compilation has been tested with Visual Studio 7, but should also work with the Microsoft C++ Toolkit.  You also need bison and flex as build tools.  These tools can be found in the [UnxTools](http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=9328) distribution.
+
+* open the Visual Studio Command Prompt
+* change directory to the pcc source and into the os/win32 directory
+* customize the paths in build.bat
+* find bison.simple in the UnxTools distribution and modify build.bat to point to it's location, or copy this file into os\win32.
+* run build.bat
+
+By default, directories under c:\pcc will contain the built binaries.  You can add c:\pcc\bin to your path.
+
+You will need the [YASM assembler](http://www.tortall.net/projects/yasm/wiki/Download).  Rename yasm.exe and copy the binary into c:\pcc\bin.  Install the libraries and include files under c:\pcc\include and c:\pcc\lib.
+
+You will also need the include files and libraries from the [Microsoft Platform SDK](http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=0BAF2B35-C656-4969-ACE8-E4C0C0716ADB&displaylang=en) and Microsoft's link.exe.
+
+NOTE:  There is currently a known bug which will prevent pcc from compiling source files on win32 targets (underscores are not correctly prefixed to external symbols).
