Windows compilation in a nutshell - Setting up environment variables (part3)

Click OK to close System environment variable configuration panel, then OK to close System settings and finally close your Control Panel.
We’re almost there ! You should now have a valid system configuration. You can check your PATH settings by opening a command prompt (Start Menu > All programs > Accessories > Command prompt) and try the following commands :
. mingw32-make –version : Check your MINGW settings.
. make –version : Check your MSYS settings.
. qmake –version : Check your Qt settings.

If you get a ‘…..’ is not recognized as an internal or external command error for any of those commands, it means that the corresponding configuration is invalid. Check that the path you set in your PATH environment is valid and try again.
You are now ready to compile Tulip.
