WireGuard for Windows
This is a fully-featured WireGuard client for Windows that uses Wintun.
If you just want to build and install this from source, but don't care about doing any form of real development with it, simply clone this repo, and then double click on
quickinstall.bat and stop reading this document. If you do care about doing real development, don't double click that, and instead read onwards.
Windows 10 64-bit or Windows Server 2019, and Git for Windows is required. The build script will take care of downloading, verifying, and extracting the right versions of the various dependencies:
C:\Projects> git clone https://git.zx2c4.com/wireguard-windows C:\Projects> cd wireguard-windows C:\Projects\wireguard-windows> build
After you've built the application, run
x86\wireguard.exe to install the manager service and show the UI.
Since WireGuard requires the Wintun driver to be installed, and this generally requires a valid Microsoft signature, you may benefit from first installing a release of WireGuard for Windows from the official wireguard.com builds, which bundles a Microsoft-signed Wintun, and then subsequently run your own wireguard.exe.
Optional: Creating the Installer
The installer build script will take care of downloading, verifying, and extracting the right versions of the various dependencies:
C:\Projects\wireguard-windows> cd installer C:\Projects\wireguard-windows\installer> build
Optional: Signing Binaries
Add a file called
sign.bat in the root of this repository with these contents, or similar:
set SigningCertificate=DF98E075A012ED8C86FBCF14854B8F9555CB3D45 set TimestampServer=http://timestamp.digicert.com
After, run the above
build commands as usual, from a shell that has
signtool.exe in its
PATH, such as the Visual Studio 2017 command prompt.
Alternative: Building from Linux
You must first have Go ≥1.12, Mingw, and ImageMagick installed.
$ sudo apt install mingw-w64 golang-go $ git clone https://git.zx2c4.com/wireguard-windows $ cd wireguard-windows $ make
You can deploy the 64-bit build to an SSH host specified by the
DEPLOYMENT_HOST environment variable (default "winvm") to the remote directory specified by the
DEPLOYMENT_PATH environment variable (default "Desktop") by using the
$ make deploy
