Hello Jonas,

i am compiling the mscore windows version using linux as cross
development platform. If you want to compile mscore under windows
you probably have to extent the cmake scripts and change the code.

For linux you need:
      - the curren svn version of CMake (latest release 2.4.8 does not work)
      - mingw cross compiler package
      - wine
      - mingw qt4.x package from trolltech installing under wine
      - maybe other things i forgot

Go to the toplevel makefile and enter "make win32". Follow the error messages
and install other necessary packages. Some path names in the cmake build system
are hardcoded for my system.

If you are not a developer i recomment using the lastest windows testrelease
from prereleases.musescore.org.

Regards,
Werner

Thank you, Werner. I'll give it a try!

Have you tried compiling directly under windows?

no, never tried. I have no experience with windows not as a user and not as
a developer.

As far as i understand you have the choice of using the command line and
makefiles or use the MS IDE.
You most likely have to extend the cmake scripts. Also in the code there
are some parts #ifdef'ed out (you dont want to compile JACK etc.)
