Hello again,

I edited configure.vbs manually, so it accepts version 4.4.3 (simply changed
template from 3.* to 4.*) and tried to build it with Qt 4.4.3, but build
process failed. Looks like it searches for files that existed in Qt 3, but
were removed in Qt 4. I attach configure.log and edited configure.vbs if
they may be helpful.

I should admit that build-script for Windows OS is quite old and deprecated.
I wish I could work under Linux, however I am not comfortable with Linux
development tools. I prefer Visual Studio which is available only under
Windows. Is there anyone, who is developing under Windows too? There should
be someone, otherwise, how do you maintain product compatibility with
Windows? Please tell me your about experience of building VBox under

Sincerely yours,
Byelozyorov Sergiy.
