I would like to install "Make" for Windows 8.

I'm currently working on NodeJS app that will be run on a Windows server and previously I have used NodeJS in a Linux environment. I need make to run my Mocha tests.

Can anyone help me out as my google-fu seems to be failing me tonight.

(I saw something about setting Cygwin but would like to avoid that route)

You can use MinGW or MSYS, but you may be better off by just setting up a VM with Linux.

Edit to add: Another option is GnuWin32

The app needs to run on a Windows 8 server, no choice :-/ –  StevenMcD Jan 24 '13 at 20:46

Then good luck with MinGW, MSYS or GnuWin32. GnuWin32 will also bring other unix utilities which you may need to successfully run the make file. –  Jan Schejbal Jan 24 '13 at 20:48
