Hi staff,
I am interesting in building Qt web browser from source code. I download source code version 2.5.075. I use Eclipse C/C++ platform and Qt 4.5 for Eclipse plug-in. I also install Qt windows SDK 4.5. When I build project, I get some errors:
Description   Resource   Path   Location   Type
  initializing argument 1 of `BOOL RemoveDirectoryW(const WCHAR*)'   browserapplication.cpp   browser   213   C/C++ Problem
invalid conversion from `const ushort*' to `const WCHAR*'   browserapplication.cpp   browser   865   C/C++ Problem

I want to the work version of development platform for Qt Web browser. if any body knew that, please tell me.
which IDE: Vs.NET or Eclipse?
which version of Qt SDK?
Do I need any third-party SDK for building Qt web browser.

Thanks in advanced!

Thanks for evaluating QtWeb browser.

To build QtWeb you need MS Visual Studio 2008, Qt 4.5.x and OpenSSL headers, no other SDKs are required. Qt Creator is not supported by now.

In spite of Qt and WebKit are cross-platform SDKs, QtWeb is designed (at least by now) for the specific needs to be pure Win32 application, wich is compact and portable, so it uses some Win32 API calls, like RemoveDirectoryW(...), which Qt Creator will not recognize unless you include <windows.h> header.
