Windscribe 2.0 desktop client for Windows, Mac and Linux

Overview

Windscribe 2.0 Desktop Application

This repo contains the complete source code for the Windscribe 2.0 app. This includes installer, service/helper, backend process and GUI. Please note that this is a work-in-progress, your mileage may vary.

Windows

Prerequisites

  • Windows 10.
  • Recommended 120+ GB of storage.
  • Install git (https://git-scm.com/downloads). When installing Git, you can stick with all the default options presented to you by the installer.
  • Clone the repository.
  • Visual Studio Community 2017 (run install_vs.bat with admin rights from /common/prepare_build_environment/windows).
  • Python 2.7x (run install_python.bat with admin rights from common/prepare_build_environment/windows).
  • Active Perl (install from https://www.activestate.com/products/perl/downloads/ or execute this code snippet).
  • CMake (run install_cmake.bat from common/prepare_build_environment/windows).
  • CppCheck (run install_cppcheck.bat with admin rights from common/prepare_build_environment/windows).
  • Verify the following entries are in your System PATH environment variable. If they are not, add them to the System PATH environment variable. Reboot.
    • C:\Python27
    • C:\Python27\Scripts
    • C:\Perl64\site\bin (or equivalent Strawberry Perl site\bin folder)
    • C:\Perl64\bin (or equivalent Strawberry Perl bin folder)
    • C:\Program Files\Git\cmd
    • C:\Program Files\Cppcheck

Install build script dependencies

  • On Windows 10, you will have to go to 'Manage App Execution Aliases' in System Settings and disable app installer for python.exe and python3.exe
  • python tools/bin/get-pip.py
  • python -m pip install -r tools/requirements.txt

Install signing certificate

  • Copy your PFX code signing file to installer/windows/signing/code_signing.pfx.
  • Edit tools/build_all.yml and enter the password for your PFX file in the password_cert field of the windows_signing_cert section.
  • Note that the application will still build and run without these signatures, but using the VPN without signatures will require a debug build.

Build libraries

Go to subfolder tools/deps and run the following scripts in order. Libraries will be placed in build-libs.

  1. install_jom
  2. install_openssl
  3. install_qt
  4. install_cares
  5. install_zlib
  6. install_curl
  7. install_boost
  8. install_lzo
  9. install_openvpn
  10. install_wireguard
  11. install_stunnel
  12. install_protobuf

Notes

  • Some libraries depends on others. Jom is installed first and speeds up further builds. Almost all of the libraries depends on openssl. Openvpn depends on LZO. Curl depends on openssl and zlib.
  • If you notice install or build scripts fail for seemingly no reason, try running each script from a fresh shell instance (CMD or gitbash). It appears to have something to do with a character limit on PATH or ENV variables.

Build the Windscribe 2.0 app

Go to subfolder tools and run 'build_all'. Assuming all goes well with the build, the installer will be placed in build-exe. You can run 'build_all debug' for an unsigned build. Note that an unsigned build is required to connect the VPN when building without code signing.

Mac

Prerequisites

  • MacOS Catalina or MacOS Big Sur (We recommend building/developing only on a native machine. VM setups are not well tested)

  • Recommended 120 GB of storage (Need to take a closer look at this number, we may be able to get away with as little as 80GB)

  • Install brew (brew.sh)

  • Install Xcode 11.3.1 if using MacOS Catalina, or Xcode 11.7 if using Big Sur

  • git (https://git-scm.com/downloads). This step is optional, as git is bundled with Xcode.

    • brew install git
  • Clone the repository.

  • Install Auto-Tools and 7-Zip (See below "Install Auto-Tools")

  • Install Wireguard build tools (brew install go)

  • Install CppCheck (brew install cppcheck)

  • Install dropDMG from: https://c-command.com/dropdmg/

    • Create symlink for dropdmg
      • ln -s /Applications/DropDMG.app/Contents/Frameworks/DropDMGFramework.framework/Versions/A/dropdmg /usr/local/bin/dropdmg
    • Run the DropDMG app and accept the update command-line tools prompt
    • Disable auto-update
    • Enable "Quit when done" in Preferences->Advanced
    • Copy desktop-v2/common/prepare_build_environment/mac/DropDMG/Configurations and Layouts into ~HOME/Library/Application Support/DropDMG/Configurations and Layouts
  • Install cmake (3.20.1 last tested) from: https://cmake.org/download/

  • Install python deps:

    • python tools/bin/get-pip.py
    • python -m pip install -r tools/requirements.txt

Set up code signing for release builds

  • Install your Developer ID signing certificate in the Keychain.
  • TBD...

Build Dependencies

  • Open a terminal in desktop-v2/tools/deps:
  • Run install_openssl
  • Run install_qt
  • Run install_cares
  • Run install_boost
  • Run install_curl
  • Run install_lzo
  • Run install_openvpn
  • Run install_wireguard
  • Run install_stunnel
  • Run install_protobuf
  • Run install_gtest

Notes on building libraries:

- Some libraries depends on others. Almost all of the libraries depends on openssl. Openvpn depends on LZO.
- The install scripts put the dependencies in desktop-v2/build-libs.

Build the Windscribe 2.0 app

Open a terminal in desktop-v2/tools and run './build_all' for a signed build, or './build_all debug' for an unsigned build. Please note that a signed build requires you to have completed the 'Set up code signing' section above. Assuming all goes well with the build, the installer will be placed in desktop-v2/build-exe.

    Windscribe preventing Internet access - Latest Update 2.3.16 or whatever

    Yesterday, I updated my Windscribe to 3.1.6. Then, when I got home, I could not access the internet. When I uninstalled Windscribe, I magically had internet again. I don't know what is going on here but unless you know the problem I'm going to switch to Nord for the times being. Sorry, I did refer three friends to you guys though! Love you still!

  • [Bug?] Not working at all on Debian

    [Bug?] Not working at all on Debian

    Opening this issue because I didn't find the answer on other issues. Also I'm labelling this as a "bug?" because I don't really know if it's only on my machines.

    So, when I try to connect to any location, it fails everytime. I tried UDP, Ike and TCP, both via automatic and manual mode. I also tried with the Docked mode on and off.

    OS & app verison I have this issue

    • Debian 11 Bullseye & Windscribe v2.4.1
    • Q4OS Centaurus (based on Debian 10 Buster) & Windscribe v2.3.15 (latest release)

    Below the steps I made:

    Q4OS

    • Download file from Windscribe website
    • Installed via dpkg command
    • Log In
    • Can't connect
    • Tried with Windscribe CLI (already installed): worked on Switzerland server (not on US server, it was the day US servers didn't work)
    • Uninstalled both version (GUI and CLI) as it was suggested not to keep the CLI version
    • Re-install of GUI version
    • Still can't connect

    Debian

    • Cloned the repository
    • Followed istruction for build
    • Installed the brand new .deb file
    • Log In
    • Can't connect either
    • Recover and install the old CLI, as in Q4OS worked
    • API error and can't connect, followed by uninstall of CLI version

    To be fair, on Q4OS I also tried the browser extension on Brave (Chrome based) and autopilot mode worked, but I still couldn't connect to "chosen" server.

    If you need more informations, reach me out!

    Error when creating the Debian package

    I'm doing this in a fresh ubuntu Docker image with this increasingly-messy script that I created as per the README. I was originally doing all of this as root and assumed it to be the source of the errors, so I changed the script to run the build process as a normal user, but this didn't change anything.

    There was this error message in the log file: [wstunnel] wstunnel process error: "execvp: Permission denied" Looked into /usr/local/windscribe folder, and I found windscribewstunnel was not set executable. After I did chmod +x /usr/local/windscribe/windscribewstunnel, WStunnel protocol also works now.

    Windscribe will not reconnect under a new session if a previous session was terminated while connected.

    This is on Fedora 36 GNOME, using 2.4.8

    To reproduce:

    1. Set windscribe to start and connect automatically
    2. Connect
    3. Log out of GNOME using the user menu
    4. Log back in
    5. Windscribe will show a tray icon as if it is connecting but won't finish
    6. To work around this, exit windscribe, run systemctl restart windscribe-helper and run windscribe again; it should connect again.
