QT4 installing

I have a question about installing qt under windows. I read the documentation, and it says to use nmake if the person is using visual, but I am not. I am using c++, and it does not tell what to do besides for using visual I am sorry this question is not about Linux. It is about something common to Linux. My friend has this problem. He is switching over to Linux, but he has to wait for the CDs to come in the mail because Linux is kind of big for him to download with dial up.

Which C++ compiler do you use? MinGW? or what? Have you tried using "nmake" anyway? Are there instructions that come with the source?

As a side note, you can get QT3 for Windows from the Qt/Win Free project.

He uses Borland c++ builder (command line), the free edition thats 8.7mb and I have it too on my windows machine. There is qmake, but I am not sure what that is for.

Just for the records: For the GPL version of Qt4, Trolltech only supports gcc/MinGW (see here).

If you want to use another compiler on Windows, you can try the patches of the Q../Free project, port Qt4 to your compiler youerself or purchase the commercial version of Qt from Trolltech (I think these are pretty much all of your options ).
