Run the installer with the "Run As Administrator" option and install into "Program Files(x86)". Right click the installer EXE from windows explorer in order to check this option.
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 .
