Building Twisted on Windows


Some requirements must be met to build the "Official" win32 Twisted.

Installation requirements


Just issue the command:

$ python bdist_wheel


The Official Twisted is built with native Python 2.7 (latest), not the Cygwin version of Python, however it is built with the help of Cygwin packages.

You need both.

  • ZopeInterface 3.3.0

Download and install it for both versions of Python.

  • winreg

You need this little module:


If you have trouble building the official build, try the following:

  1. Make sure your cygwin .bash_profile isn't clobbering this system PATH
  2. Make sure you don't have Cygwin's Python package installed.
  3. If you're doing an official release, see maintainer-notes.txt.
