Windows compilation in a nutshell - Installing Qt

I- Installing Qt

The first thing you should do is getting the Qt framework for Windows. Qt is an open-source framework written in C/C++ available on several plateforms (Linux, Windows, Mac OS…)

On Windows plateforms, Qt is built along with MinGW. MinGW provides GNU libraries and compiler on Windows. Even if Tulip can be build with native Windows compilers, this tutorial will only describe how to build Tulip with MinGW.

Download Qt framework here :  http://qt.nokia.com/downloads You will get a setup file called qt-sdk-win-opensource-YYYY-MM.exe

Run the setup and follow the instructions. Note the path were you installed Qt (usually C:\Qt\YYYY.MM\)
