Thanks, but no, unfortunately.  I'm completely new to all this stuff, and there seems to be a bit too much to learn all at once.

I ended up completely uninstalling it, and reinstalling it with beta 5.  It chose MSVC compiler mode by default, so I left it like that (is that normal, or did it somehow remember me trying it from before the uninstall?).  Now I don't have the option of chosing anything else when I try to add anything to it.

Hopefully the 1.0.0 final release will be included in the stable KDE releases soon and I can stop worrying about this.  In the meantime, if anyone has any suggestions about what I should try, please let me know.

modified version of the bootstrap.bat from the project-directory in the

I hope this will help you.
