Frida under MS Windows

Running Frida under Windows is not currently explored by ourselves; we depend on reports from users.


Basic approaches:

  • So far, nobody has tried to build Frida natively under Windows (using Visual Studio and so on)
  • Using the Cygwin shell, Frida can be installed as in a Linux environment.
  • Another solution is using VMWare to run a Linux environment on a windows box.


In former years, there was a severe restriction: as Windows did not support unix-like pipes, Frida could not feed data to Gnuplot for plotting. However, according to, this problem is solved by now. Please report your experience.
