Precompiled Libraries and Executables
Due to the large number of projects we distribute, only some of the packages have regularly updated binary distributions and only for some (common) platforms. The COIN-OR Optimization Suite is a coherent set of the latest releases of all the above COIN-OR projects. This distribution is maintained and has a regularly updated set of binaries. This is the recommended way to obtain COIN binaries. If you want to obtain precompiled binaries for a specific project only, you can check the full list of available COIN-OR binary downloads.
Quick Source Download, Build, and Installation Guide
For Unix-like systems (Unix, Linux, MacOS X, Cygwin, MSys), the quick download and installation guide works in most cases if you don't have particular requirements.
