Setting up the build environment

For using most of the tools in the commandline you will have to set up a proper environment. This includes setting the PATH variable and some additional variables needed for CMake and running KDE applications.

There are some assumptions made in this article: The path C:\kde4\win32libs is used as the installation directory from the kdewin-installer (which will be called KDEWIN_DIR), C:\kde4\kdelibs-install as the path where all kde4 modules will be installed to(which will be called KDEDIRS). Obviously you have to change the actual values to suite your system. The sources from SVN would reside in C:\kde4\kdelibs-src.

Warning
Don't forget to change set MYKDEDIRS in the seconde line!


Create a file and name it environment.bat:

@echo off
set MYKDEDIRS=
 
:: This script should be able to autodetect the following values.
:: Only set them manually, if the script complains about them.
:: Don't use quotes (")!
 
:: Microsoft Platform SDK install directory
:: set MSPSDKDIR=C:\Program Files\Microsoft Platform SDK for Windows Server 2003 R2
 
:: CMake install directory
:: set CMAKEROOT=C:\Program Files\CMake 2.4
 
 
:: make only changes below this line, if you know, what you are doing
 
 
if "%KDEDIRS%" equ "" (
    set KDEDIRS=%MYKDEDIRS%
)
if "%KDEDIRS%" equ "" (
    echo KDEDIRS not set
    echo set MYKDEDIRS in %0% or KDEDIRS at the environment

        set MSPSDKDIR=%%i
    )
)
if "%MSPSDKDIR%" equ "" (
    echo can't detect the Microsoft Platform SDK install directory
    echo set it at the start of %0% or with the MSPSDKDIR environment variable
    goto ERROR
)
if not exist "%MSPSDKDIR%\include\windows.h" (
    echo can't find windows.h in %MSPSDKDIR%\include\
    echo try to set the Microsoft Platform SDK install directory at the start of %0% or with the MSPSDKDIR environment variable
    goto ERROR
)
 
 
if "%CMAKEROOT%" equ "" (
    for /F "usebackq tokens=3 delims=	" %%i in (`reg query "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Kitware\CMake 2.4.6" /ve`) DO (
        set CMAKEROOT=%%i
    )
)
if "%CMAKEROOT%" equ "" (
    echo can't detect the cmake root directory
    echo set it at the start of %0% or with the CMAKEROOT environment variable
    goto ERROR

if not exist "%CMAKEROOT%\bin\cmake.exe" (
    echo can't find cmake.exe in %CMAKEROOT%\bin
    echo set it at the start of %0% or with the CMAKEROOT environment variable
    goto ERROR

if "%VS80COMNTOOLS%" equ "" (
    echo can't find the Microsoft Visual Studio installation directory
    echo set the VS80COMNTOOLS environment variable
    goto ERROR
)
 
echo psdk: %MSPSDKDIR%
echo cmake: %CMAKEROOT%
 
set PATH=%KDEDIRS%\bin;%PATH%;%CMAKEROOT%\bin;%MSPSDKDIR%\bin
set DBUSDIR=%KDEDIRS%
set QTDIR=%KDEDIRS%
set KDEWIN_DIR=%KDEDIRS%
set KDEWIN32DIR=%KDEDIRS%
 
set INCLUDE=%MSPSDKDIR%\include;%KDEDIRS%\include
set LIB=%MSPSDKDIR%\lib;%KDEDIRS%\lib
 
set CMAKE_INCLUDE_PATH=%INCLUDE%
set CMAKE_LIBRARY_PATH=%LIB%
 
call "%VS80COMNTOOLS%vsvars32.bat"
 
cmd.exe
 
goto END
 
:ERROR
pause
:END

You will have to run this file every time you start a new cmd-shell (for building etc.).

This script should be able to autodetect most of the required settings.
