ZLIB (for MSVC2005/Win32/Win64)

zlib ( http://www.zlib.net/ ) related material.

NOTE:

You may need the Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 (SP1) C/C++ run rime libraries too if you get error messages about manifest files, etc. (This is NOT the .NET Microsoft redistributable!)

Get the installer for the runtime libraries from Microsoft itself.

OR: try this local copy of the same (as was distributed with the MSVC2005 SP1 setup which was used to create the executable[s] above.

How to build and install libzlib from source

For UNIX, please refer to the ZLIB web site for further documentation.

And on the Windows platform...

... you must have Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 (SP1) installed; open the zlib_all 'sln' solution in the base directory and build. Presto. Well, almost... (see the requirements below)

Requirements for building the source code

Things I changed

WARNING:

All Win32 binaries assume a SSE capable CPU. Adjust the compile settings when you have older equipment. (SSE is supported by the oldest AMD AthlonXP family, where Autodesk 3d Studio MAX 2009 has a serious issue with those CPUs regarding Mental Ray, despite the minimum requirements still okaying AthlonXP CPUs. Later versions and anything after that does support SSE2 as well; these projects do not use that CPU feature.)

Downloads

Note: the 7z (7zip) downloads are strongly advised as those will be faster to download (and smaller too). For anyone who does not want to use 7zip for compelling religious reasons (like alarmingly restrictive enforced company policies), we provide a .tar.bz2 file as an alternative for some files. Click on the "bz2" links instead to download these - when available.
