Download the latest V-Play Installer from http://v-play.net/download/

Note: Please see Add V-Play to Existing Qt Installation if you already have a Qt installation on your system.

The Installer allows you to the select the parts of the V-Play & Qt SDK for your desired target platforms. So it helps to keep the download size small, because you can select beforehand which parts of the SDK are downloaded.

Open the V-Play Installer and follow the instructions on screen.

Note: By default, only a desktop-compiler is installed. You can add compilers for mobile platforms later on.

Log In with your V-Play Account

After opening Qt Creator, you will be asked to provide your credentials. Enter the email address that you used for signing up and your password.

Note: To protect your account from unauthorized access, it is locked after three failed login attempts. Please contact us if you accidentally locked your account.

Getting Started

After installation start Qt Creator and select File/New Project. Choose a V-Play project for starting to develop V-Play.

Also have a look at the V-Play examples and demos: they are located in the folder of your Qt installation in the folder <QtSDK>/Examples/V-Play/.

We also prepared a lot of tutorials to get you started, you can find them in our documentation.
