Install Qt + qml on windows XP SP3? Which version/which files?

  • Hi,

    I found many resources concerning what I am about to ask but I lack the knowledge and perspective to understand what I am reading. I am not a coder, some friends helped me with a project but I am stuck now), so I am sorry in advance if the specific problem that I have was covered :(.

    My project is to develop a front end for an arcade cab that runs windows XP to facilitate ROM launching.

    The version of Qt I used to dev on my main computer: Qt 5.4 for desktop (MinGW 4.9 32 bit).

    When I launch Qt Creator and help > about, it says:

    Qt Creator 3.3.1 (opensource)
    Based on Qt 5.4.1 (MSVC 2010, 32 bit)
    Built on Feb 20 2015 at 04:12:12
    From revision 567c6eb875

    We used my regular computer to develop the app: windows 7 ultimate (2009).

    This allowed us to do exactly what we wanted.

    We couldn't find any way to "port" the app on the Arcade cab running windows XP SP3.

    I would like to "reverse" the situation and instead of developing the software on my main computer, I would like to dev on the Arcade Cab PC directly to remove at least one layer of problems. It just seem to make sense to dev on the machine the software is supposed to run and test as I go. I ONLY need the software to run on THIS specific PC. It's a personal project and the hardware I am using is so specific that it's pointless to consider anything else.

    But for that I need to install Qt (Qt quick? Qt creator? A compiler? God I am lost.......) on the windows XP SP3 PC in order to dev. I am sooo lost with all the names and version numbers...).

    Can anyone point me to what I need to install to have the Qt environment running on a Windows XP SP3 PC?

    I think I am using pretty basic stuff in Qt. Here is what I currently use:
    A) QML
    B) play sounds.
    C) display image that contains transparency (PNG)
    D) a carousel image system
