I have that basically working, see


That's a bunch of scripts that build libvirt using mingw on Windows.
It also covers virt-manager, but there are still many things to port
and fix until virt-manager works properly on Windows, as it assume a
Linux specific things in some places.

But virsh is working and tested with TCP and TLS transport. SSH
transport wasn't tested yet, so I don't know if it work properly,

At some point there will probably be an installer for libvirt and
virt-manager for Windows, but we're not there yet. A prebuild
installer for libvirt and virsh can be found here


Unfortunately it's a bit outdated.
