This page tracks the status of KDE Frameworks on Microsoft Windows.

I have only tested with MSVC2010 32-bit.

Tier 1

Working: itemmodels, itemviews, kplotting, kcodecs, kguiaddons, kidletime, kwidgetsaddons, sonnet. More details later.


Builds, no warnings. The autotests are currently disabled on all platforms and there are no manual tests, so I haven't tested if it works.


Builds, only some deprecated warnings. Unit test passes. Manual tests work fine. kwidgetitemdelegatetest shows a bug that is probably cross‐platform (will report later).


Builds with no relevant warnings, unit tests pass. There's many manual tests; I haven't carefully tested them all yet.


Builds, tests pass sometimes, other times locks up.


KRandom isn't very well seeded

KDirWatch also has some code working around a Windows limitation, which is obsolete because QFileSystemWatcher already implements the same workaround. But getting things to compile should be a priority over removing that.

KDirWatch test fails with QFileSystemWatcher backend on both windows and linux. Added to the kdelibs cleanup.

KSharedDataCache is a nonshared memory-only cache on windows.


Hundreds of errors casting WId to HWND in Windows‐specific code.


Builds with liblzma, bzip2 and gzip on mingw64. tests have been moved. karchivetest and kfiltertest fail on mingw64.


Not tested yet due to PCRE dependency.

Tier 2


Builds with fake backend. no tests available.


Builds and passes autotests.


Builds. I didn't install kwalletd so I didn't test if it works.
