Hi

I am trying to build VirtualBox OSE 1.6.2 on Windows XP 64 bit and following the steps from http://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Windows%20build%20instructions . While doing so, i am stuck with an error related to g++.

I suspect that the error is because the MinGW i am using (one listed in the link above) is not capable of building 64 bit apps.

I tried downloading a 64 bit MinGW from http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=202880 but could not find any binaries/exes in it.

Any idea where can i get appropriate MinGW to build VirtualBox on 64 bit platform?

Thanks in advance.
