# Compile instructions for Windows - MinGW up to date?

• Jan 2, 2017 - 16:58

The compile instructions do not mention the new library QtWebView. I added it to my Qt installation, then also QtWebEngine, but alway get an error at #include QWebView.

Also QWebFrame, QQmlEngine, QQmlComponent, QQuickItem, QQuickPaintedItem, QQuickView are missed, although the last five are not new.

What can I do?

Are you trying to build 2.1 with Qt 5.6? Won't work, you'd need Qt 5.4 for that. And 5.6 for master

Strange - it really seems to be version 2, as I see after looking into the code. But I cloned MuseScore as usual version 3 (last completely new clone in Oct.), same environment, same commands. Do you have any hint, how to be sure to get version 3 ?

There are two active branches: master and 2.1.
Master contains what will hopefully become MuseScore 3, it requires Qt 5.6+ to build.
2.1 is better named, and will become MuseScore 2.1. It requires Qt 5.4 to build.
