Help on installing ruby-qt on windowsXP

I don’t have an answer, but I’m curious why you’ve decided to try the
non-commercial version for Windows. I was looking into that last week and
decided to try FOX instead because

  1. the non-commerical version is Qt version 2.3, not version 3 (unless you
    just download a 30-day evaluation
  2. getting the Windows commercial version in order to get version 3 support
    is prohibitively expensive! - $1550

Hi,
I have done the fiolowing.

  1. Installed latest version of Ruby, c:\ruby
  2. UnTared ruby-qt2-devel-0.16.tar.gz in the c:\ruby folder.
  3. Installed QtWin230-NonCommercial.exe from trolltech.com in c:\qt
  4. When I try to install qt-ruby from the command line
    ruby install.rb config
    ruby install.rb setup
    ruby install.rb install

I get an error saying that it
"cannot find the qapplication.h file."
“you do not seem to have the qt library”

This file is present in the “c:\qt\inlcude” directory.

Can any one help me?

Hi Mark,
I know it is expensive in windows. But I am just trying to get Qt to work.
Qt is very good gui kit no doubt about it. Has anybody tried this before on windows?
Regards
Ajay

yes, no problem, it works well. And there are no problems compiling it
under Win XP.

but, the Ruby extension for Qt 3 does not exist yet !
So, no regret.
