+# Apache NiFi -  MiNiFi - C++ Windows Build Guide
+## Requirements
+Apache NiFi MiNiFi C++ has been built on Window Server 2016, 2019, and Windows 10 operating
systems. Since the project is CMAKE focused we suggest building via
+Visual Studio 2017 or our ms_build.bat script. In order to build the MSI, please install
the [WiX Toolset](
+The project previously required OpenSSL to be installed. If you follow our build procedures,
below, you will not need to install that dependency. Further, any MSI
+distributable requires that systems install the [Visual Studio 2010 redistributables](
+## Building with Visual Studio 
+In order to support Visual Studio you must install [plugins capable of building CMAKE](
We also advise
+installing WiX and Visual Studio Command Prompt via the marketplace. To do this please go
to the Tools Menu, followed by Extensions and Updates. Once the popup displays you
+may install additional features from Online sources in the Online menui.
+Once you have CMAKE support available please select the appropriate target. A file named
CMakeSettings.json provides a few base configurations, x64-RelWithDebInfo, x64-Release,
+x64-RelWithDebInfo-WithJNI, and x64-Release-WithJNI. Though the project is written in C++,
JNI functionality supports running Java processors stored in NiFi Archives. These can be run
+in a much smaller memory footprint and consumer fewer resources. If your systems do not support
Java or you do not want a JDK installed, please select the non JNI targets.
+CMAKE must generate its cache, under Cache in the CMake Menu. After that is complete go to
'Build Only' under the CMAKE menu. Due to limitations in Visual Studio's CMAKE support, it
is advised
+that you build minifi.lib then minifiexe targets. Once you have built these targets, you
may use the cpack command to build your MSI. If you are building with JNI functionality the
MSI will be
+significantly larger ( about 160 MB ) since it contains the base NARs to run the standard
set of Apache NiFi processors. 
+## Building via the build script
+The preferred way of building the project is via the win_build_vs.bat script found in our
root source folder. You must supply a single command, the build directory. Typically you create
a directory

   There are additional options. Should add explanations.
