Hello everyone,

Some news :
First, build Marble:

   - don't need any more to copy C:\Qt\2010.02.1\mingw  to C:\mingw because
   of adding mingw's path in the environment variables
   - you can install marble also with Qt Command Prompt  with
   D:\marbleSVN\marble-build>mingw32-make install

Remaining issues :
no openstreetmap download! =>big blue marble => *How to fix it ?*

Then, level 2 : build an application using marble widget

I have that kind of project developed under linux for now so I have to
adapted my .pro to fits windows' paths like this:

win32 {
    INCLUDEPATH += $$quote(C:/Program Files/marble/include/marble)
    LIBS += D:/marbleSVN/marble-build/src/lib/libmarblewidget.dll.a
unix {
    LIBS += -L/usr/local/lib \

then import my project into Qt creator and build it.
But When I try to execute  i have "Program exited with code 03"
and a popup windows entitled "Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library"
"runtime error
Program: D:\mysoft\bin\mysoft.exe
This application  has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual
Please contact the application's support team for more information"

so I still don't know what is wrong.. why MS VC++??

I am trying to do it all out of Qt creator to see if it is because of it but

I did an svn up and now* I can't build..*

So plz fix it :)

CU for the next step
