Visual Studio version

Hi, my name is Luca from Italy.
I'm a Computer science student and I like very much your project, but I have a question: why DriverCompiler run only in Visual Studio 2013 ? It's a way to port it on Mono so we can compile kernel on Linux e MacOS too ?


  • Hi Luca,
    Thanks for your post! We haven't tested VS2015 recently so not sure if it works in that version or not. MSBuild underwent a lot of changes between 2013 and 2015 including a few breaking changes. We will be testing again in the New Year.

    According to one Reddit user recently, FlingOS (compiler and all) works under Mono (using XBuild) without modification! Take a look at

    Issues discussed in that thread are resolved in latest version on Master branch and you won't need LibUSBDotNet (mentioned and may cause an issue. Simply avoid compiling the CI20Booter project).

    Hope this works for you. Do let me know if you have any problems or further questions!
  • Hi Luca,

    Just to let you know that the latest commit on this branch: has just compiled FlingOS and FlingOops successfully and both executed properly in VMWare and VirtualBox. The changes are x86-only (we will be transferring them to the MIPS target architecture later this month). Latest version of the compiler (which is on that branch) is now in Beta Testing. We'd love for you to give it a go and let us know if it works or not?

    Happy New Year!
