If you want to develop your own servers please install the complete pvbrowser from install-pvbrowser.exe. Then you must install the Qt libraries for Windows and MinGW. Our installer now provides a replacement for the Makefile generator "qmake". Because of this "fake_qmake" it is now possible to develop pvservers without the Qt development package. It is sufficient to install the MinGW C++ compiler.
You will have to define the environment variables %QTDIR% and %MINGWDIR% to point to the installation directories where the executables from Qt and MinGW can be found (qmake.exe, mingw32-make.exe and the C++ compiler). The qmake tool from Qt will be used to create a Makefile for your projects. The installation procedure of pvbrowser defines the environment variable %PVBDIR% and adds %PVBDIR%\win-mingw\bin to your %PATH% environment variable. Since it does not know where the Qt SDK is located this must be defined manually either in "start_pvdevelop.bat" or within your system control center.
Example setting for "Qt libraries for Windows and MinGW"
set QTDIR="C:\Qt\5.1.0\5.1.0\mingw48_32" set MINGWDIR="C:\Qt\5.1.0\Tools\mingw48_32" set PATH=%MINGWDIR%\bin;%QTDIR%\bin;%PVBDIR%\win-mingw\bin;c:\windows;c:\windows\system32
If you want to start pvserver as service in the background, use xyntservice .
Download the pvbrowser® client only
Use this package if you only need the client. Here you do not need to make any manual adjustments.
Download the whole pvbrowser® development package
For compiling and linking your pvserver(s) first download and install the MinGW C++ compiler. If you also want to use the Qt tools you may download the Qt libraries for Windows and the MinGW C++ compiler.
If you only want to develop in Lua you do not need the Qt SDK and MinGW.
