Why not?
Using qt the porting is easy, and many people has requested me to make a windows port of hydrogen.
However the main platform will remain Linux, of course.. :)

(I'm going to ignore the idiot who posted the first reply...)
So...
Is there any actual source for the Win32 port? I've tried to follow what's on the wiki "Windows Installer page" and I'm ready to try compiling hydrogen itself, only, there's no "\win32" directory??
I've checked CVS and I'm stumped. Where is the win32 directory?

the sources are the same, the only thing is missing is a directory (win32) where I place all the libraries used for the link process.
As I wrote in the wiki page, "Compiling Hydrogen on Windows is a real pain, so?Don?t try this at home!"
Is not a joke, it's still too hackish and not portable so I prefer to not support people how wants to compile hyd on windows.
The windows installer is available, so why you want to recompile the program?

Cool. Now I don't have to tear my hair out trying to build it myself ;-). Maybe there should be a link from the main download page, so that people know it's there (I never would have found it on my own)? Obviously, you'd want to mention that it's in early stages and a work in progress (ie don't whine if it doesn't work etc.).

Thanks for the try. It crashed. Said something about qtgui4.dll.

I had checked the box for a desktop icon but it never came up. When I launched the program it displayed the splash screen and part of the interface before I got the obligatory windows shut down window. It didn't crash my machine, windows just canceled the program.

The uninstall worked fine.

I attempted to retrieve more info from the error file but it refused to allow me to copy n paste from the window and the directory it told me the error file was in - there was no file.

Thanks. Maybe next time?

Comix: Ditto from above, except that I have VS 6.0 and VS.NET 2k5 installed. If there's a debug trace or something that could help you out, I'd be happy to help...

I just think that to make a windows version is a regression. Have you ever used jack? one day you'll understand.

You speak as if JACK is something sent from the heavens. It's an INCREDIBLY horrid half-assed attempt at catching up to Windows and Mac audio. In fact, it's the entire reason I stopped using Linux audio apps. The continued integration of its brain damaged ways into Linux sound software is beyond my comprehension.

If you think a Windows version is a regression, you've obviously never USED Windows audio software after an extended period of battling JACK. You feel like a total dumbass for dumping so much effort into a problem that was already solved.

yes i already use windows too, and the major problem is the compatibility with other software, it's not easy as with jack.
by exemple when i do something with pure data, i can easily control, it by rosegarden midi functiun, just by patching, and it's the same with hydrogen.
Jack is good when you know how to use it.

with asio driver it's not possible, or it's necessare to use vst/vsti or rewire connections.

that's wy i think windows is less interresting.

yes, it's still active, but since qt is still too unstable I decided to wait and continue the development of the qt3 stable release (only on linux).

...but this is not the real problem...the real problem is that my windows installation is gone mad..and I have to reinstall all (that's why I hate windows..)
