+Compiling the DPDK Target from Source
+=====================================
+
+System Requirements
+-------------------
+
+The DPDK and its applications require the Clang-LLVM* C compiler and MSVC* linker.
+The Meson* Build system is used to prepare the sources for compilation with the Ninja backend.
+
+\*Other names and brands may be claimed as the property of others.
+
+Install the Compiler
+--------------------
+
+Download and install the clang compiler from `LLVM* website <http://releases.llvm.org/download.html>`_.
+For example, Clang-LLVM direct download link::
+
+	http://releases.llvm.org/7.0.1/LLVM-7.0.1-win64.exe
+
+
+Install the Linker
+------------------
+
+Download and install the Build Tools for Visual Studio to link and build the files
+on windwos, from `Microsoft* website <https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/downloads>`_.
+
+
+Install the Build System
+------------------------
+
+Download and install the build system from `Meson* website <http://mesonbuild.com/Getting-meson.html>`_.
+A good option to choose is the MSI installer for both meson and ninja together::
+
+	http://mesonbuild.com/Getting-meson.html#installing-meson-and-ninja-with-the-msi-installer%22
+
+Install the Backend
+-------------------
+
+If using Ninja, download and install the backend from `Ninja* website <https://ninja-build.org/>`_ or
+install along with the meson build system.
+
+Build the code
+--------------
+
+The build environment is setup to build the EAL and the helloworld example by
+default.
+
+Using the ninja backend
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+.. code-block:: console
+
+    cd C:\Users\me\dpdk
+    meson build
+    cd build
+    ninja
+
+Run the helloworld example
+==========================
+
+Navigate to the build directory and run `dpdk-helloworld.exe`.
+
+.. code-block:: console
+
+    cd C:\Users\me\dpdk\build
+    helloworld.exe
+    hello from core 1
+    hello from core 3
+    hello from core 0
+    hello from core 2

+Introduction
+============
+
+This document contains instructions for installing and configuring the Data
+Plane Development Kit (DPDK) software. The document describes how to compile
+and run a DPDK application in a Windows* OS application environment, without
+going deeply into detail.
+
+\*Other names and brands may be claimed as the property of others.
+
+Limitations
+===========
+
+DPDK for Windows is currently a work in progress. Not all DPDK source files
+compile. Support is being added in pieces so as to limit the overall scope
+of any individual patch series. The goal is to be able to run any DPDK
+application natively on Windows.
