Setting up the users 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 inhere: 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. Create a file and name it environment.bat:

@echo off
set MYKDEDIRS=

:: environment.bat 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 enviroment
    goto ERROR
)

if "%MSPSDKDIR%" equ "" (
    for /F "usebackq tokens=3 delims=	" %%i in (`@reg query "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\MicrosoftSDK\InstalledSDKs\D2FF9F89-8AA2-4373-8A31-C838BF4DBBE1" /v "Install Dir"`) DO (
        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 enviroment 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 enviroment 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 enviroment 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 enviroment variable
    goto ERROR
)

if "%VS80COMNTOOLS%" equ "" (
    echo can't find the Microsoft Visual Studio installation directory
    echo set the VS80COMNTOOLS enviroment 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=%PSDKDIR%\include;%KDEDIRS%\include
set LIB=%PSDKDIR%\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.). You should have cmake and mingw32-make etc. in your path as well.
