 Sorry for not specifying the make error, but I was referring to a
previous attempt I did several weeks ago so I don't remember what the
exact error was. For now I am working on it every now and then in my

building properly on windows. As for the QT version I will switch to
QT5.4 and try out QT creator as proposed.
