Hi all digiKam users,

Since few week, me and Julien Narboux we trying to make a digiKam
installer for windows including last code from svn trunk of digiKam,
kipi-plugins, and all shared libraries from KDE core.

This archive is based on a KDE 4.4.4 MinGW4 install.

Currently, we working on a NSIS based installer, but it doesn't work yet:


As working based, we use my current Windows 7 KDE4 installation from
my laptop. I created a 7zip archive of this. You can download it at
this place :


Archive size is around 200Mb. Uncompress it at the right place on your
computer. The folder created is the whole KDE4 dir. Go to bin sub-dir,
digikam.exe is there (as dngconverter.exe, showfoto.exe,
expoblending.exe, etc.)

Do not cry if all doesn't work yet. 90% of digiKam work fine under
windows, but some features are broken due to some bugs in KDELibs, as
for ex, if you want to sent items to trash :


Also, camera auto detection doesn't work. I suspect an uncomplete dbus port.

So, if you want to play with digiKam under windows, let's go...
