Building SV v2.1 for Windows¶
It should now be possible to build Sonic Visualiser on Windows using the Qt Creator IDE. A special branch of the SV code is available which includes all the dependency libraries pre-built for your compiling and linking pleasure.
Get the right branch¶
Start by checking out the
with-dependencies branch from Mercurial:
$ hg clone -b with-dependencies https://code.soundsoftware.ac.uk/hg/sonic-visualiser
Use the right build configuration¶
Open the main
sonic-visualiser.pro project in Qt5 Creator.
- a release build -- the debug build dependencies are not correctly set at the time of writing
- using g++/MinGW tools -- the MSVC compiler is not supported
- and disable shadow build -- it will only link if built in-place in the source tree
