What you need to build Gnucleus:
Microsoft Visual Studio 7.0

Downloading the latest source:
GnucNS uses a Concurrent Versioning System (CVS) to keep all developers in sync of each other when changes are made to the source. I use WinCVS for downloading and updating the source files on SourceForge. You do not need an account on SourceForge to get the latest files, they can be downloaded anonymously.

WinCVS is an Open-Source program and is free to download. Click here to go to their page.

Instructions for WinCVS version 1.3

Open WinCVS, go the Admin menu and select Preferences. Enter these settings:
  • Authentication: pserver
  • Path: /cvsroot/gnucleus
  • Host address:
  • User name: anonymous
Close the Preferences and find the toolbar that has a file path typed into it, it should be right under the menu bar in WinCVS. Change it to where you want the GnucNS source files to go when they are downloaded.
Next go to the Create menu and select Checkout Module. For module name enter GnucNS.

Compiling the GnucNS Source:
Open the directory where the GnucNS sources were downloaded to.
Open the GnucNS.sln file, this will open Microsoft Visual Studio.
