We are planning on using Varnish Cache 3.0.2 (latest version) for our production environment, however, for development we would like to run Varnish on our local computers, some of us have Win7.

The only easy option I could only find to install it was an older version of Varnish (2.1) bundled for Windows.

https://www.varnish-cache.org/trac/wiki/VarnishOnCygwinWindows

Are there options for building it (how?) or getting the compiled version?

Why the downvotes? This is a valid question even if it is a Bad Idea(TM). –  kce Dec 9 '11 at 23:09

You're probably much better off installing a Linux distribution on a virtual machine and use the package-managed version of Varnish from that distro. It will be more similar to your production environment and easier to configure.

Varnish Cache 3.0.2 is now available for Windows Cygwin, see:

It was updated on December 2011

Varnish heavyly uses linux kernel modern abilities...using Cygwin could work but it will be a hell to compile and maintain.

Install Varnish on a Fedora VM and focus on your devs instead of dirty hacks ;o)
