Hi Abhi,

Looking in your skill one point can be interesting : Windows OS application

Currently, i try to finalize Windows installer for 5.0.0 release. It still
a lots of test to process and dysfunctions to fix.

The digiKam for Windows is fully cross-compiled under Linux. No need a
Windows environnement to compile digiKam. We have tried this solution in
past and MSVC is just a pain and a waste of time. Do not ask me to use this
weird IDE to hack digiKam under Windows. i will say NO NO NO.

To compile digiKam for windows, all is done under Linux, include the NSIS
installer. This last one can be found here :


To hack digiKam under Linux the installer stage can be dropped. I use a VM
with Win7 with use a shared directory from Linux host where bundle files
are hosted. That all...

All files used to cross-compile are here, if you want to take a look :


Are you interested to help me to complete Windows port before 5.0.0 final
release ?
