The state of frameworks on Windows

Hi,

Recently I have updated my dusty old frameworks build on Windows (from
last summer). I started adding some stuff needed by KMyMoney like
KDiagram, Gpgmepp [1], since these did not have a ebuild yet I created
them in testing. I have a few questions for Patrick (TheOneRing):

1. As I remember you've said that we should start removing the kdewin
module, I found a few libraries like Gpgmepp which need kdewin to
build on Windows, what's the right approach to move forward with this?

2. Did we get any closer to setup a Windows build system that can be
added to Jenkins? If no, what do we need to do?

3. Where should the ebuilds of all the libraries (frameworks), which
resulted in splitting kdepimlibs up, should go? (some examples
Gpgmepp, KHolidays, KContacts). I propose frameworks/pim, is that OK?

4. Do you have any plans for an eventual release? What's the current
state of the project?

Regards,
Cristian

After emerging 'qt' I tried to issue the
'emerge frameworks' command

After a number of the framework components were successfully built an error
regarding Qt5WebKitWidgets was thrown.

Rerunning the 'emerge frameworks' command generates the following output:

[Bug 343636] New: Trying to emerge with VS6 in the environment variable causes compiler errors

https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=343636

            Bug ID: 343636

I tried to carry out a fresh build / install of KDE for windows using the
emerge system.
Whilst emerging 'qt' a number of errors were thrown up. Looking at the output
in the console I noticed a lot of references to VS98, which threw up a few red
flags seeing as I was trying to build using mingw!
Looking at the PATH environmental variable I noticed that VS6 (used for old
work projects) had added a few entries of it's own. Removing these and
rerunning 'emerge qt' got me further but more errors started cropping up.
I bit more digging revealed that VS6 had also added some entries to the INCLUDE
and LIB environmental variables. Removing these and rerunning 'emerge qt' again
finally allowed the build to complete successfully.

Reproducible: Always

kde win apps fail to start

Hi,

I had KDE win installed and working, however after a long period of not 
using it I attempted to launch an app today. Saw a spinning icon for a 
few seconds, then nothing, no error, nothing. To see if I could fix it 
I've uninstalled (physically rm the install folder) then reinstall tried 
this process for both visual studio and mingw 64 variants. Still can't 
start any of the kde apps. I had to rm the start menu folder manually, 
and the reinstall is not repopulating it. With the mingw 64 install, if 
I browse to the bin dir, and double click one of the exe's I get "this 
application has requested the runtime to terminate in an unusual way" 
dialog.

What can I do to get this working again?

Virtuoso?

In my efforts to get Kontact working (long-time fan on linux) I
installed Kolab ES.  Yesterday all looked well, but it's unusable today.
 There seems to be 2 problems:

gpg-agent doesn't autostart - how can I cure this?

I get the akonadi message that virtuoso RDF is required - the only
source I have found is from a site I don't know and therefore don't
trust.  How do I get this?

Thanks

Kleopatra downloader

Immunet 3 (Clam for Windows) tells me that I have a file called
Kleopatra Downloader__3687_i1407323321_il172065.exe (I can't copy and
paste from the report, so that may be inaccurate) which it claims to
contain W32.89D221900A-100.SBX.VOIC

I believe that Kleopatra was offered as an add-on with some other
download, so it really could be a dubious offering.  All the same,
before I delete the file and attempt to remove Kleopatra, I'd like a
second opinion.  Is there any reasonable possibility that the file is
actually a genuine one?

emerge kde-4.13

Hello I'm trying to compile kde-4.13 on windows 7 ... I installed python 3.4 
and git then
I ran git clone git://anongit.kde.org/emerge.git and downloaded 
correctly emerge.
I then checked out kde-4.13 with
git checkout kde-4.13
and 
all seemed to go correctly.
I had problems in the following step:
when I run on 
powershell
cd $KDEROOT\emerge
. .\kdeenv.bat

I receive the error:
Test-Path : 
Cannot bind argument to parameter 'Path' because it is an empty string
at 
kdeenv.ps1:28 char:25
* if(!(test-path -path <<<< $path)) ...
etc ... etc ...

Could someone help me??

Thank you in advance

Francesco.
