How to build
=====================
The instructions should help you build the Installer Framework from scratch.
Get the sources
---------------------
Use Git to check out the Qt Installer Framework sources that are hosted at:
http://code.qt.io/cgit/installer-framework/installer-framework.git/
Build a static Qt
---------------------
Building the Qt Installer Framework from sources requires Qt (version 5.5
or newer). Supported compilers are MSVC 2013 or newer, GCC 4.7 or newer,
and Clang 3.1 or newer.
If you want to ship your installer as a single file you have to build
Qt and the Qt Installer Framework statically.
See the Qt documentation for the prerequisites and steps to build Qt from sources.

Build the Framework
---------------------
Run 'qmake && make' (or 'mingw32-make', 'nmake' ...) to build the Qt Installer
Framework. The documentation can be generated by 'make docs'.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
