Building Aegisub



  1. Visual Studio 2013 (Express edition is good enough) or the Windows 8.1 SDK (command line builds only).
  2. A recent DirectX SDK
  3. Yasm installed to somewhere on your path.

There are a few optional dependencies:

  1. msgfmt, to build the translations
  2. WinRAR, to build the portable installer
  3. InnoSetup, to build the regular installer

All other dependencies are either stored in the repository or are included as submodules.


  1. Clone Aegisub's repository recursively to fetch it and all submodules: git clone --recursive
  2. Open Visual Studio from the VS2013 Native Tools Command Promp using devenv.exe /useenv (required for the build system to be able to find nmake.exe for building wxWidgets)
  3. Open Aegisub.sln
  4. Build the solution.
  5. Copy the contents of an existing Aegisub install into the aegisub/aegisub/bin directory (not strictly required, but you'll be missing a lot of functionality otherwise).

For actual development work you will probably want to mostly use the "Debug-MinDep" configuration (which disables building most of the projects), as the dependency checking is pretty slow.
