4. How to compile
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
In-order to debug boxee:
Compile the VS 2010 project, project\VS2010Express\BOXEE for Windows.sln
In-order to debug the code from the build directory, you need to copy all of
the required dlls and other files. If you have Python installed, you can do it
by running the script: project\VS2010Express\prepare_for_debug.py <exe_to_run_dir>
from its current working directory.
In-order to create an installation file:
Run the batch file: project\Win32BuildSetup\BuildSetup.bat
(You'd probably want to run "BuildSetup.bat noexit", to see its output.)
Note: Currently only the DirectX releases are supported.

5. How to run

- Istall the BoxeeSetup.exe file.
- Click on the Boxee shortcut.
