@@ -215,8 +215,45 @@ To build SINGA with OpenCL support, you need to pass the flag during
cmake:
     cmake .. -DUSE_OPENCL=ON
 
 ### Windows
-To be added.
 
+The compiler used for windows can ONLY be Visual Studio 2015 as some c++11
+features (Generic lambdas, auto, non-static data member intitializers, etc.)
+followed by singa are only supported in this version (Details can be found
+[here](https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh567368.aspx)). 
+
+For the dependent library installation, please refer to
+[Dependencies](doc/en/docs/dependencies.md).
+After all the
+dependencies are successfully installed, just run the following commands to
+generate the VS project in cmd under singa folder:
+
+    $ md build && cd build
+    $ cmake -G "Visual Studio 14" -DUSE_CUDA=OFF -DUSE_PYTHON=OFF .. 
+
+Current version of singa cannot support neither cuda/cudnn compiling nor python
+wrappers. The default project generated by the command is 32-bit version. You can also
+specify a 64-bit version project by:
+
+    $ md build && cd build
+    $ cmake -G "Visual Studio 14 Win64" -DUSE_CUDA=OFF -DUSE_PYTHON=OFF ..
+
+If you get error outputs like "Could NOT find xxxxx" indicating a dependent
+library missing, please configure your library file and include path for cmake or the system.
+For example, you get an error "Could NOT find CBLAS" and suppose you installed
+openblas header files at "d:\include" and openblas library at "d:\lib". You should run the
+following command to specify your cblas parameters in cmake:
+
+    $ cmake -G "Visual Studio 14" -DUSE_CUDA=OFF -DUSE_PYTHON=OFF
+    -DCBLAS_INCLUDE_DIR="d:\include" -DCBLAS_LIBRARIES="d:\lib\libopenblas.lib"
+
+To find out the parameters you need to specify for some special libraries, you
+can run the following command:
+
+    $ cmake -LAH
+
+After generating the VS project, please open the "singa.sln" project file under
+the "build" folder and compile it via a normal VS project. You will find the
+unit tests file named "test_singa" in the project binary folder.
