# [WireGuard](https://www.wireguard.com/) for Windows

Nothing to see here yet. Come back later.

### Requirements

  - [Go](https://www.golang.org) 1.11
  - [rsrc tool](https://github.com/akavel/rsrc)
  - [Wintun](https://git.zx2c4.com/wintun)

### Clone

This has a few submodules at the moment, so you'll need to clone recursively. While building (below) uses WSL, it's recommended that you still clone into Windows per usual.

$ cd Projects
$ git clone --recursive https://git.zx2c4.com/wireguard-windows

### Building

Currently a mess while we transition a few things, so you'll actually need to use WSL. Here are instructions for the latest Ubuntu from the Windows Store on WSL:

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:longsleep/golang-backports
$ sudo apt update
$ sudo apt install mingw-w64 make golang-go
$ mkdir "$HOME/.go"
$ export GOPATH="$HOME/.go"
$ go get github.com/akavel/rsrc
$ cd /mnt/c/Users/YourUsername/Projects/wireguard-windows
$ make

### Running

After you've built the application, run `wireguard.exe` to install the manager service and show the UI.

$ ./wireguard.exe
