    How about consulting the readme files which come with the package you downloaded, or perhaps the message boards / FAQs from where you downloaded it.

    i did read the readme file of installation but i dont understain the next part:


    ================================================== ========
    2. Set some environment variables in the file .profile (or .login,
    depending on your shell) in your home directory. Create the
    file if it is not there already.

    QTDIR - the directory in which you're building Qt
    PATH - to locate the moc program and other Qt tools
    MANPATH - to access the Qt man pages
    LD_LIBRARY_PATH - for the shared Qt library

    Note that under IRIX the additional LD_LIBRARYN32_PATH and
    LD_LIBRARY64_PATH variables are used for specifying library
    search paths. Set the variable that matches your configuration, or
    see the rld(5) man page for more information.

    This is done like this:

    In .profile (if your shell is bash, ksh, zsh or sh), add the
    following lines:

    QTDIR=/usr/local/qt
    PATH=$QTDIR/bin:$PATH
    MANPATH=$QTDIR/doc/man:$MANPATH
    LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$QTDIR/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

    export QTDIR PATH MANPATH LD_LIBRARY_PATH

    In .login (in case your shell is csh or tcsh), add the following lines:

    setenv QTDIR /usr/local/qt
    setenv PATH $QTDIR/bin:$PATH
    setenv MANPATH $QTDIR/doc/man:$MANPATH
    setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH $QTDIR/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

    After you have done this, you will need to login again, or
    re-source the profile before continuing, so that at least $QTDIR
    and $PATH are set. Without these the installation will halt with an error
    message.


    On AIX set LIBPATH and on HP-UX set SHLIB_PATH instead of LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

    Note that the SGI MIPSpro o32 and Sun WorkShop 5.0 targets are no
    longer supported as of Qt 3.3.

    ================================================== =====

    where is the .profile or .login , what to do with them?

    On your linux box.
    But you're using windows, so I guess you need something else.
    Like my suggestion of finding another board which is more QT-centric than this one.

    Qt for Windows is a commercial product (ie. not free). You can either develop for nix, use another toolkit, buy Qt for Windows or develop with this out-of-date version of Qt for Windows.
