[SOLVED] How to configure Qt to enable another module

  • I have Qt 4.8.0 opensource installed on my Windows 7 machine. I would like to start using QtDBus, but it's not enabled in my current installation (the sources are there, but the right defines aren't set and the dll's aren't built). What's the quickest way to add it to my installation? I'm hoping for something like "configure +qtdbus" followed by "nmake" or similar. I'd like to avoid reinstalling everything from scratch.

    However, you can give a try to compile it under Windows if you have compiled D-Bus library under Windows.

    The steps can be found in

    By the way, If you want to find the easiest way to get QtDbus support for Windows. You can download kde for windows.
