This page is a random collection of tips for when you have difficulty building Orx.
You need to run setup.sh / setup.bat to get the Orx dependencies.
This will occur if:
The setup command should be automatic when first cloning. Try running ./setup.sh or setup.bat again.
If you haven't updated your Orx library in a while, this could happen, but is exceedingly rare. Did the other “Windows” folders generate under tools/orxCrypt? Maybe yes? Maybe no. Regardless, use git to clean up your unused files and folder under orx/ and then setup again. You should be back up and running again.
For specific mingw issues, see the troubleshooter on this page.

Just some glitch out there in the matrix, like a network timeout. Just try ./setup.sh again.
