    [SOLVED]mingw-w64 on Kali 2

    Hi everyone I have a problem with the mingw compiler using kali 2 on vmware.
    First of all I read lots post on the internet and now I'm very confused. At the beginning I thought that mingw-w64 was not install on kali 2 but then looking at the kali linux package tracker I found out that it should be already installed in the distro (http://pkg.kali.org/pkg/mingw-w64) but cant figure out how it works.
    So I have downloaded the windows exe of the mingw compiler from this website
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/ming...d?source=files
    and tried to open it with wine (tried both 32 and 64) but I always get this error

    Code:
    root@kali:~/Downloads# wine mingw-get-setup.exe 
    wine: Bad EXE format for Z:\root\Downloads\mingw-get-setup.exe.
    root@kali:~/Downloads# wine64 mingw-get-setup.exe 
    fixme:service:scmdatabase_autostart_services Auto-start service L"MountMgr" failed to start: 2
    wine: Bad EXE format for Z:\root\Downloads\mingw-get-setup.exe.
    I'm trying to compile Hyperion 1.2 (http://nullsecurity.net/tools/binary.html)but can't work out how to do it.
    Can anyone see what I'm doing wrong? Not trying to look for someone who does it for me but I'm clearly on the wrong track now.
    thanks for your help

    thanks for the reply,
    I thought mingw was installed as it says on http://pkg.kali.org/pkg/mingw-w64 but checking with the following command realised it wasn't
    Code:
    root@kali:~# dpkg -l mingw
    dpkg-query: no packages found matching mingw
    tried to install the package but din't work
    Code:
    root@kali:~# apt-get install -y mingw
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    E: Unable to locate package mingw
    root@kali:~# apt-get install -y mingw-w64
    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    E: Unable to locate package mingw-w64
    and can't run the mingw exe file with wine as I get this error
    Code:
    root@kali:~/Downloads# wine mingw-get-setup.exe 
    wine: Bad EXE format for Z:\root\Downloads\mingw-get-setup.exe.
    root@kali:~/Downloads# wine64 mingw-get-setup.exe 
    fixme:service:scmdatabase_autostart_services Auto-start service L"MountMgr" failed to start: 2
    wine: Bad EXE format for Z:\root\Downloads\mingw-get-setup.exe.
    the command wine setup.xx-exe doesnt work either
    any advice here?

    could it be a problem related with the repo?

    for me ..yes!!! your repo are "broken" or your kali-distro &&connection are currupted
    READ official-documentation
    look into my-repo:

    root@kali:~# leafpad /etc/apt/sources.list

    # Regular repositories
    deb http://http.kali.org/kali sana main non-free contrib
    deb http://security.kali.org/kali-security sana/updates main contrib non-free
    # Source repositories
    deb-src http://http.kali.org/kali sana main non-free contrib
    deb-src http://security.kali.org/kali-security sana/updates main contrib non-free

    copy & paste it & save...after type :
    apt-get clean && apt-get update && apt-get dist-upgrade

    & replace the procedure to install mingw-w64...
    good-luck

    How did you get the compiler to work after you installed mingw64? I am working through the same book (I assume) and I was able to get the repository updated, install mingw64 but this command I cannot figure out:

    i586-mingw32msvc-c++ Hyperion-1.0/Src/Crypter/*.cpp -o hyperion.exe

    I tried using i686 etc based on what I found but cannot get it to work

    E:Unable to locate package mingw64
    E:Unable to locate package mingw32

    Spot on. This worked thank you. Before reading this I tried, apt-get dist-upgrade and that did not work.

    Give this a try

    Hyperion 1.0:
    i686-w64-mingw32-c++ Hyperion-1.0/Src/Crypter/*.cpp -o hyperion.exe
    Hyperion 1.2
    i686-w64-mingw32-c++ Hyperion-1.2/Src/Crypter/*.cpp -o hyperion.exe

    Hey, I faced all the same problems as you. But I am unable to fix them. Can you tell me, how did you fix yours?
