Build instructions:

Requirement: Qt > 4.8 (works in Qt 4.8.2 and in Qt 5.3 as well).

Method 1: automatic bundle build

This method will produce a single executable file with integrated project libraries.

Open zodiac/ in Qt Creator, select a build configuration (Debug or Release) then build (Ctrl+B).

Method 2: automatic separate build (Windows only)

Open in Qt Creator, and build it as usual. It will produce a main executable (zodiac) with a few dynamic libraries.

Method 3: manual build

This is a variation of 'method 2' that supposes manual building of all subprojects. Open projects in QtCreator and build them manually in the following order:

1. swe/
2. astroprocessor/
3. chart/
4. zodiac/

Run on Windows:

To run application on Windows after build, put following Qt libraries into app directory:


In Qt 5.2, they are located in C:\Qt\5.2.1\mingw48_32\plugins.
