Lua and LuaBind Binaries for VS 2010

I’ve been working with Lua recently, and apparently neither Lua nor LuaBind come in binary distributions. They’re also kind of a pain to build, so I thought I’d go ahead and post fully prepped binaries, built by and for VC 2010.
Lua 5.1
LuaBind 0.9

A few things to be aware of:

  • These are just built 32 bit binaries and nothing else. You will still need project sources for the headers.
  • Lua is built as a release mode only DLL.
  • LuaBind comes in debug and release variants as a static library.
  • These are built using Multithreaded DLL and Multithreaded Debug DLL. You’ll get link errors if your project is statically linking to the CRT.


  1. Thanks! those libraries work fine in VS2010 🙂

    • Apparently they were lost in a server move. Re-uploaded now!
