So I use the NFFT library for work on a 64 bit Ubuntu Linux machine, where it is relatively easy to compile and set up. All the dependencies are in the linux repositories, and compiling is simple and straightforward. However I wanted to be able to run my matlab code and test scripts on my home machine, running Windows 7 64 bit without dual booting OSes or running a painfully slow VM.
It was a bit of a pain, but I finally succeeded in getting some working binaries up and running. Maybe this will save someone else some time and pain. Continue reading Compiling the NFFT library for 64-bit Windows and Matlab.
