<div id="Introduction">

<p><h3>Introduction</h3></p>


<p>This document explains how to prepare a MS-Windows Quantum GIS release (as a self-contained package installer)
using the scripts contained in the ms-windows folder. In order to avoid mistakes or misunderstandings,
I highly recommend to follow each step and command exactly as they are written in this document.</p>

</div>




<div id="MSYS">

<p><h3>1. MSYS (1.0.11)</h3></p>

<p>Download the <a target="_blank" href="http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/mingw/MSYS-1.0.11-2004.04.30-1.exe">MSYS installer</a></p>

<p>Install to <code>c:\msys</code></p>

<p>At the command prompt question for post install, type <code>n</code> and then enter.</p>

<p>Download the <a target="_blank" href="http://downloads.sourceforge.net/mingw/coreutils-5.97-MSYS-1.0.11-snapshot.tar.bz2">
MSYS coreutils package</a></p>

<p>Unpack it to a temporary folder, then copy all the content of the <code>coreutils-5.97</code> folder to <code>c:\msys</code>
(overwrite the existing files when asked)</p>

</div>




<div id="MinGW">

<p><h3>2. MinGW (5.1.4)</h3></p>

<p>Download the <a target="_blank" href="http://downloads.sourceforge.net/mingw/MinGW-5.1.4.exe">MinGW installer</a></p>

<p>Select "Download and Install Current Version";</p>

<p>Install only "g++ compiler" and "MinGW Make";</p>

<p>Install to <code>c:\msys\mingw</code></p>

</div>




<div id="Quantum GIS MSYS Environment">

<p><h3>3. Quantum GIS MSYS Environment</h3></p>

<p>Download the <a target="_blank" href="http://download.osgeo.org/qgis/win32/msys.zip">
Quantum GIS MSYS Environment</a></p>

<p>Extract the whole package to <code>c:\msys\local</code></p>

</div>



<div id="Qt OpenSource">

<p><h3>4. Qt OpenSource (4.4.0)</h3></p>

<p>
Download the <a target="_blank" href="ftp://ftp.trolltech.com/qt/source/qt-win-opensource-4.4.0-mingw.exe">Qt OpenSource installer</a>
</p>

<p>Install to <code>C:\DevTools\Qt-OpenSource</code></p>

<p>When the installer will ask for MinGW, you don't need to download and install it, just point the installer to
<code>c:\msys\mingw</code></p>

<p>At the alert message "The installer could not found a valid c:\msys\mingw\include\w32api.h", press "Yes" and continue.</p>

<p>When Qt installation is complete, edit <code>C:\DevTools\Qt-OpenSource\bin\qtvars.bat</code> and do as follows:</p>

<p>At line 8 replace:</p>
<pre><code>echo -- PATH set to C:\DevTools\Qt-OpenSource\bin</code></pre>

<p>with:</p>
<pre><code>echo -- Adding MSYS environment directories to PATH</code></pre>

<p>At line 14 replace:</p>
<pre><code>set PATH=C:\DevTools\Qt-OpenSource\bin</code></pre>

<p>with:</p>
<pre><code>set PATH=%PATH%;c:\msys\local\bin;c:\msys\local\sqlite\bin;c:\msys\local\pgsql\lib</code></pre>

<p>Finally, add <code>C:\DevTools\Qt-OpenSource\bin</code> to your <code>PATH</code> system variable.</p>

</div>




<div id="Python">

<p><h3>5. Python (2.5.2)</h3></p>

<p>
Download the <a target="_blank" href="http://www.python.org/ftp/python/2.5.2/python-2.5.2.msi">Python installer</a>
</p>

<p>Install to <code>C:\DevTools\Python</code></p>

<p>Add <code>C:\DevTools\Python</code> to your <code>PATH</code> system variable.</p>

</div>




<div id="SIP">

<p><h3>6. SIP (4.7.6)</h3></p>

<p>
Download the <a target="_blank" href="http://www.riverbankcomputing.com/static/Downloads/sip4/sip-4.7.6.zip">SIP source code</a>
</p>

<p>Unpack to <code>c:\msys\local\src</code></p>

<p>Open a Windows terminal and type:</p>
<pre><code>cd c:\msys\local\src\sip-4.7.6
qtvars
python configure.py -p win32-g++
make
make install</code></pre>

</div>




<div id="PyQt">

</p>

<p>Unpack to <code>c:\msys\local\src</code></p>

<p>Open a Windows terminal and type:</p>
<pre><code>cd c:\msys\local\src\PyQt-win-gpl-4.4.2
qtvars
python configure.py
make
make install</code></pre>

</div>




<div id="CMake">

<p><h3>8. CMake (2.6.0)</h3></p>

<p>
Download the <a target="_blank" href="http://www.cmake.org/files/v2.6/cmake-2.6.0-win32-x86.exe">CMake installer</a>
</p>

<p>Launch the CMake installer and do as follows:</p>

<p>Select "Add CMake to the system PATH for all users"</p>

<p>Install to <code>C:\DevTools\CMake</code></p>

</div>




<div id="Quantum GIS">

<p><h3>9. Quantum GIS Build (0.11.0)</h3></p>

<p>
Download the <a target="_blank" href="http://download.osgeo.org/qgis/src/qgis_0.11.0.tar.gz">Quantum GIS source code</a>
</td>
</tr></table>

<p>Unpack to <code>c:\msys\local\src</code></p>

<p>Open a Windows terminal and type:</p>
<pre><code>cd c:\msys\local\src\qgis_0.11.0
md build
cd build
qtvars
cmakesetup ..</code></pre>

<p>In CMake Setup utility press "Configure" button and, when asked, choose "MinGW Makefiles" as generator.</p>

<p>CMake Setup will alert you for missing dependencies; don't care, press OK and continue.</p>

<p>When finished, select "Show Advanced Values" checkbox.</p>

<p>For each item listed below, select the related box in the CMake Setup utility, type in the suggested value and then press enter
(we will perform a "bottom-up" procedure, editing last values of the CMake Setup list as first):</p>

<pre><code>SQLITE3_LIBRARY = c:/msys/local/sqlite/bin/libsqlite3-0.dll
SQLITE3_INCLUDE_DIR = c:/msys/local/sqlite/include
POSTGRES_INCLUDE_DIR = c:/msys/local/pgsql/include
GRASS_PREFIX = c:/msys/local/grass-6.3.0
CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX = c:/msys/local/qgis-0.11.0
CMAKE_CXX_FLAGS = -DGEOS_INLINE
CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE = Release</code></pre>

<p>When finished press OK button.</p>

<p>Finally, in the same terminal session, type:</p>
<pre><code>make
make install</code></pre>

<div id="Quantum GIS Package">

<p><h3>10. Quantum GIS self-contained Package</h3></p>

<p>Copy all the content of the ms-windows folder to a temporary directory, for example <code>c:\temp</code>.</p>

<p>Launch the file <code>c:\temp\QGIS-Packager.bat</code> and select the option number 2.</p>

<p>When finished, you should have a Quantum GIS self-contained release package in <code>c:\temp\QGIS-Release-Package</code>.</p>

</div>




<div id="NSIS">
