HDF5-1.8.17 Pre-built Binary Distributions
The pre-built binary distributions in the table below include the HDF5 libraries, include files, utilities, and release notes, and are built with the SZIP Encoder Enabled and ZLIB external libraries. For information on using SZIP, see the SZIP licensing information.

The HDF Group uses an installer program to install the HDF5
libraries, header and support files on Windows. This installer is digitally signed by The HDF
Group. Please be aware that the installer requires that the user have permission to install
files on the target computer.
Also note that the Windows binary distributions are built in Release mode with debugging symbols.
Please avoid using spaces in directory path names as this can cause problems when building.
To use the shared libraries on Windows with Visual Studio you must specify the H5_BUILT_AS_DYNAMIC_LIB compile definition.
Static libraries begin with lib and shared libraries do not. For example, hdf5.lib is the shared library and libhdf5.lib is the static library.
External Libraries Used by HDF5
The SZIP and ZLIB external libraries are optional for use with HDF5. The HDF5 pre-compiled binary distributions include the SZIP (Encoder Enabled) and ZLIB libraries that they are compiled with.
The SZIP software is distributed by The HDF Group. Please see the SZIP Compression In HDF Products page for information on SZIP. Although the current release is 2.1, the SZIP 2.0 binaries can be used with HDF5.
Please view the SZIP licensing information to determine whether to use the Encoder Enabled or Decoder Enabled SZIP library.
