How to compile TupiTube Desk from source code (Windows 7 - 32 bit)

Warning: The official installer for Windows is only available from our repository. Avoid to download it from other sites.

1. Download the dependencies required to compile TupiTube Desk

2. Install the dependencies into the following paths:

  • Qt must be installed into C:\Qt-5.x
  • Libav must be installed into C:\libav
  • Git must be installed into the default path but ensuring its commands are available from the Windows console
  • Quazip source code must be uncompressed at C:\tupitube\sources\quazip-0.7

3. Ensure the following Qt paths are included in your PATH system variable:

  • C:\Qt-5.3.2\5.3\mingw482_32\bin
  • C:\Qt-5.3.2\Tools\mingw482_32\bin

This step is required to have access to the Qt commands from console. To verify this step, open a Windows terminal and type:

qmake -version

You should get an output similar to this:

C:\Users\me> qmake -version

  QMake version 3.0
  Using Qt version 5.3.2 in C:/Qt-5.3.2/5.3/mingw482_32/lib

4. Compile and install the Quazip library
