How do I start up the Maintenance Tool?
Hi I'm trying to install the V-Play SDK but I cant find the Maintenance Tool, also am I able to develop iOS games on Windows with V-Play? So how can I find the Maintenance Tool?
on Windows you can just enter "maintain" after pressing the Windows Home button, and the maintenance tool will appear as "Maintain V-Play SDK" if you are using the latest installer. If you are using the beta version, it will show up under "Maintain Qt SDK". The Maintenance Tool is also startable from the directory where you installed the SDK, for example at C:\V-PlaySDK\SDKMaintenanceTool.exe.
We added this information to the update guide here: http://doc.v-play.net/vplay-updates.html
Please note, that we just released our own installer on 12.12.2012, so make sure you are downloading the latest release version from http://v-play.net/download which contains a lot of updates and contains the Qt SDK .
Regarding your deployment to iOS from Windows question:
Yes, you can fully develop and test iOS games on Windows with V-Play! Just use the build server and deploy your games written with QML to your iOS devices. There is a Deployment Guide available here: http://doc.v-play.net//vplay-deployment.html
We also offer plugins for iOS and Android-specific native services including "GameCenter":http://doc.v-play.net/qml-components-plugins1-gamecenter.html, "Flurry":http://doc.v-play.net/qml-components-plugins1-flurry.html or "Facebook":http://doc.v-play.net/qml-components-plugins1-facebook.html access directly from QML, which are all popular in the gaming world. Their documentation is available here: http://doc.v-play.net//qmlmodule-plugins1-plugins-1-0.html and we also use them in our own games, which are available Open-Source with the V-Play SDK.
