Thanks, this page will help me to get some clue of what Windows
dependecy I need to build QXL driver.
Your space: http://www.spice-space.org/page/AlonLevy
give me a clue "get latest WDK 7.1" for MS development environment.
What's need is Building Instructions for Windows. I may have to
do that myself anyway since there are none.

No idea, perharp it's faster let the expert tell us, Hans.

There are none. I think it's a culture thing.
*Nix users usually have a"cheat sheet" when it comes to building thing.
It's also easier to publish "text" notes than GUI notes.
So, if you get your blog running, let's do that.
For now, I will try my best to start the "Building Instructions for Windows"
Ofcourse, I will need you guy help.
I can create a Trac here if you think that would help to get the ball rolling.
