We've just released our first patch which adds support for MSVC and
Borland to the gpl'd Qt4/win32 sources.
You can download it here:


- ---------------------8<---------------------------------------
This patch is an unofficial patch to add support for Microsoft Visual Studio
and Borland C++Builder to the gpl'd version of Qt 4.0.1
from Trolltech.
When you use this patch and encounter problems please *do not* ask Trolltech
for help. Instead first try to reproduce your problem with MinGW which is
officially supported and then ask Trolltech for help.

When you've problems building Qt with this patch, please report your
problem to
kde-cygwin at or on (german only).

Although a msvc6 project file (.dsp) is generated by qmake, this currently
doesn't work. If you really need this, your welcome to sent patches.
Vcproj-generation works fine.
When you use VS2005 beta, you have to use "" as QMAKESPEC
(we'll provide a separate spec with our next version).

Uninstall any previous patches (RemovePatch.bat) or install a new Qt 4.0.1.

Extract the files to qt-win-opensource-src-4.0.1 and then
start installpatch.bat.

Instead of using the configure.exe you should use the qconfigure.bat:

qconfigure [msvc/]
