- Download and install visual studio 2015
- Open the project's solution file Project/VS14/Pegasus.sln
- Build the example demo TestApp1 and set this project as initial project.
- Run from visual studio, and TestApp1 should be running.
Editor Programmer Setup
- Follow the instructions for the programmer setup.
- Install QT Tools from the visual studio extensions: In visual studio, Under Tools select Extensions and Updates. Search and install Qt Visual Studio Tools extension
- Once the qt tools are installed, we must point to our qt package inside the Pegasus project. Go to Qt Vs Tools in the upper options bar, select Qt Options
- A dialog box will pop, create a new Qt installation, lets call it "PegasusQt" or whichever name youd like. Click Add by doing this, and point to the directory Lib/Qt/5.8 inside the project.
- Below, in the drop box that says 'Default Qt / Win version', select "PegasusQt" or whichever custom name you chose for the installation.
- Right click on the Editor project in the project navigation of visual studio and click on build soltion. This should trigger a build and we should be able to run / modify the editor.
Building QT from scratch
Pegasus comes already with a precompiled dynamically linkable version of QT under the Lib/Qt/5.8 folder. So these build steps are unnecesary unless there is a desire to modify vanilla QT 5.8. If we desire to build this from scratch, we can download the source at https://github.com/kecho/PegasusQt This should be unnecesary unless there is a desire to modify QT from its originally 5.8 stage. On this case, store the custom symbols on the Lib/Qt/5.8 folder. These steps are compatible with the LGPL license and all of its obligations.
