Subject Re: CouchDB 32bit Windows build
Date Fri, 18 Oct 2019 05:34:36 GMT
Hi Jared,

I detailed the steps that I followed on a specific branch of
Couchdb-glazier:
https://github.com/apache/couchdb-glazier/blob/wip/2.x-win32/INSTALL_32.md

You can contact me privately if you need help. I still have access to a
setuped machine to compile in 32bit

Regards,
 Alexis
