Can you build Blender as an installer for Windows?

I want to run my modified Blender on another machine, without having to download the source code.

Just copy over the files and you should be good to go.

I think you refer to the local repository

I’m confused what you are asking, what have you done and what are you trying to accomplish?

copy the blender-git/build_linux/bin folder onto another Ubuntu machine, and try to run ./blender

oh linux, yikes, it’s a ‘little’ harder there, you’ll have to statically build and link all dependencies into the blender binary.

Also if this is on ubuntu, why are you asking about windows in the title?!

I was under the false impression that I could compile a windows installer under Linux

You can’t build blender for windows on linux currently, the installer would be the least of your problems :slight_smile:
