My name is Peter Nemeth from Hungary!
And I have a question…
How to make a windows application’s?
Please help me!

Best Regards!



Funny question, you could also ask „How to build a house?“

Have you a little background in programming? Any knowledge of a programming language? And what exactly should that Windows application do? Understand, that this is not a forum that teaches basic programming skills. There are plenty of such sites elsewere on the internet.

By the way: There is a list of Caspar related software here in the forum, that probably contains something that fits your needs.


Hi Peter,

I plan to pre-build it for Windows 10 in next release. (As we´re testing it on a surface pro)

But for now here´s is a simple description.
Download and install Nodejs:

Startmenu -> node js -> node.js with commandprompt

In commandprompt Type:

npm install yarn -g

Download and unpack sourcecode from:

cd to clipTool folder.

yarn package

open in folder: builds -> CasparCGClipTool-win32-x64 -> CasparCG-ClipTool.exe

Best Regards


@didikunz: I think Peter meant how to build it for windows. As it´s only prebuild for Mac for runs fine on windows. :slight_smile:


Hahahaha, ok, now I understand :smile:
