I recently had trouble with the windows installer for the 64 bit mingw 
C++ compiler for windows.

Here is what worked for me to do a 64 bit compile ADMB source.

I put everything in c:\  because I hate long directory names (with spaces).

Get the source from


In the directory c:\

extract the source with 7zip

you will get the files in c:\mingw64



to your PATH environment string.  (Done with control panel.)

Download ADMB source from


Again in c:\ unzip the code.

You will have a directory admb. Change to that directory.

Now go down one directory to src
Add the line


to the file GNUmakefile

Go up one directory to admb again.



This will build the admb 64 bit libraries.
