Windows patch for OpenFOAM 1.6.x
The latest Windows port (using a MinGW cross-compiler on linux) of OpenFOAM 1.6.x is now available. You can find the patch and compilation instructions at:

Thanks go to the OpenCFD team and their OpenFOAM 1.6.x release for making this patch possible.

Thank u contribution for win users!

But I want to known whether can use intel compiler instead of mingw-gcc.
Thank you!

The MinGW cross compiler is able to run under Linux to create binary (dll, exe) files for Windows. If the Intel C++ compiler for Linux can do the same, which I think is unlikely, then you could presumably mimick the wmake/rules/linuxmingw32 and replace calls to mingw32-g++ with the equivalent intel compiler calls.
