Building LibreCAD 2.0 on Windows

To build LibreCAD from the lastest development version, you will need tools: git , Qt, boost, and muParser.

The ways to get LibreCAD source code in Windows is described at [1].

Qt

Download Qt from : [2]. Qt-5.0.1 for Windows 32 bit (MinGW 4.7) is used as an example in this article. Install Qt (including Qt-Creator) to \Qt\Qt5.0.1\ (Assuming you install everything to C:\ , the same assumption thereafter), and the MinGW tools are at: \Qt\Qt5.0.1\Tools\MinGW\bin\

boost

Introduction for boost can be found here [3]. Download boost from: [4]. unzip the boost files to the directory: \boost\ , and for the version boost-1.53.0, the boost files will be located in \boost\boost_1_53_0\ . Verify that you have the file \boost\boost_1_53_0\booststrap.bat. You don't have build boost in order to build LibreCAD, as LibreCAD uses header only part of boost currently. within the LibreCAD source folder, edit the settings_windows.pro file accordingly,

BOOST_DIR = /boost/boost_1_53_0/ BOOST_LIBDIR = /boost/boost_1_53_0/

muParser

muParser is at [5]. Download muParser source from: [6] unzip the muParser source files to \muparser\muparser_v2_2_3 (for muParser-2.2.3).

Steps to build muParser with MinGW:

run DOS prompt as Administrator (Start->All Programs->Accessories->Command Prompt , right click and choose "Run as administrator") in DOS prompt, type in:

set PATH=C:\Qt\Qt5.0.1\Tools\MinGW\bin;%PATH%

cd \muparser\muparser_v2_2_3\build

C:\Qt\Qt5.0.1\Tools\MinGW\bin\mingw32-make.exe -f makefile.mingw

muParser should build smoothly.

within the LibreCAD source folder, edit the settings_windows.pro file accordingly,

MUPARSER_DIR = /muparser/muparser_v2_2_3

Building LibreCAD in Qt-Creator

Launch Qt-Creator and open the librecad.pro project file within the LibreCAD source folder. Accept Qt path detected by Qt-Creator by clicking "Configure Project" button, if the project is not configured yet.

If everything is good up to this point, you can build and run LibreCAD within Qt-Creator.
