Open up the control panel and select the System Entry. Then go to the Extended tab and select Environment Variables. In the section titled 'user variables' add the above entries.
 
You should have cmake and mingw32-make etc. in your path as well.

Setting up the build environment

For using most of the tools in the commandline you will have to set up a proper environment. This includes setting the PATH variable and some additional variables needed for CMake and running KDE applications.

There are some assumptions made in this article: The path C:\kde4\win32libs is used as the installation directory from the kdewin-installer (which will be called KDEWIN_DIR), C:\kde4\kdelibs-install as the path where all kde4 modules will be installed to(which will be called KDEDIRS). Obviously you have to change the actual values to suite your system. The sources from SVN would reside in C:\kde4\kdelibs-src.

Don't forget to change set MYKDEDIRS in the seconde line!


Create a file and name it environment.bat:
