Now introducing MSVC builds for testing.
This new packaging includes Python 3.9 support.
Additionally, we have wxWidgets 3.1 bundled which brings bug fixes and improvements such as improved high-dpi support
OpenCascade 7.4 is also bundled which brings some additional 3d model parsing bug fixes.
Note: Windows 7 is no longer supported by these KiCad builds due to Python both dropping support and switching to Windows 8.1+ APIs.
These builds operate just like the “msys2 nightly” otherwise. You are however required to uninstall the msys2 version of kicad first before you can install the msvc version. There is no loss of settings doing so.
Builds made be found here: https://kicad-downloads.s3.cern.ch/index.html?prefix=windows/testing/ and are prefixed with
kicad-msvc. Please use builds dated from February 12th and onwards
