I'm trying to load Eclipse (on someone's advice) and so I downloaded Eclipse for C++ development (eclipse-cpp-europa-fall2-win32.zip). Before installing this though, I first installed a Java Runtime Environment. Next (also before Eclipse), I am trying to instlall Qt. Now because the version on the disk is for MinGW, I downloaded "qt-win-opensource-src-4.3.3". I unzipped these files into c:\qt\4.3.3 and then tried to run configure. I get the message
Unable to detect the platform from environment. Use -platform command linearg
nt or set the QMAKESPEC environment variable and run configure again
See the README file for a list of supported operating systems and compilers.
Does anyone know if I am doing this correctly?
Failing this, I will just try loading the Unisa software.

I don't remember this having to change for Eclipse to work - the MinGw part I mean.
I'm considering sticking with QIde as after a week of faffing I'm still no closer to having a decent ide working without any hassles, and on top of that, with all this downloading, I've gone and picked up some mallware called Amvo0.dll, which casues and Win32 C++ program to crash as soon as my mouse comes anywhere near the window.
I am now at the point where I started installing Qt, got it to (re)download MinGW and install it, then went to Start Menu, ... Qt by Trolltech...(Build debug libraries) and followed the prompts to the point where I am now waiting. About to go make that cuppa! (as suggested). I didn't install it under the specified folder, i.e. \install\mingw folder as specified on the CD. Yet to see what consequences this will have. I hope all this is able to help others get this loaded.
