    Is there something like a packet manager for windows to install other Open Source librarys (boost, crypto++, qt....)? (for linking with your software)

    This could have been posted on the Windows Boards... to answer your question: http://www.cygwin.com is your best bet.

    No, this should be in GD, because it's not a programming question at all.

    Dev-C++ and I think Code::Blocks come with library installers.
    All the buzzt!

    Yeah, Dev C++ has quite a nice package manager. The main problem with windows is that different IDEs tend to look for libraries in different places and stuff. Packages are one of the nice things windows dosent seem to do

    Any of these libraries come with their own installers anyway... and quite good documentation at that. I would rather trust that.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.
