Can you use MinGW / WinGW-w64 on Linux to cross-compile Cerberus-X?

is MSVC needed for some stuff?

Not without making major changes to transcc to set the compiler and set host environment from Linux to Winnt.

No. If that was the case, then it would be pointless having MinGW installed on Window if you have to have any MSVC tools installed.

Okay a VM might be the better choice then. Is there a Window version that Cerberus like more than others?
Does it fully support Windows 11?

I don't know as I don't own a Win 11 compatible machine and if I remember corretly @MikeHart doesn't either. So I'm curious about your first tryouts.

No, I don't have Win11 in any of our machines in this House.

Or you could just install WINE.

Windows 11 is just a face-lift of Windows 10. There's no real big changes.
I have no luck with Wine on my Parrot OS it keeps crashing. I think it can run wordpad but it seem very unstable so I would like to avoid that can of worms for now if possible.

I see that Microsoft will keep pushing updates to make Windows 11-compatible with more and more devices until mid-2022.

My Win10 machine only got 2gb RAM though so no luck for me I guess.
