thanks..but I want to compile my edited version of QGIS code on windows with visual studio it possible to setup development environment on windows? – Prachi Oct 12 '12 at 5:29
yes it is definitely possible, just a little bit difficult. See the link & modify the reference to Visual studio 2008 to your visual studio. You just need to remember that Visual studio should have reference to all the other dependencies, and the easiest way, is to run it from the OSgeo command prompt, like they have mentioned in this article – Devdatta Tengshe Oct 12 '12 at 5:37
