    So, I'm installing the commercial version of QT and it I get a nice little error message saying that it couldn't find string.h in the INCLUDE path. I didn't even know that Windows XP had include paths (thought it was just a Linux thing).

    Say I want to set INCLUDE to d:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\Vc7\include ... how would I go about doing that?

    Go to your system properties, click on the advanced tab, and click on environment variables. Look for the variable Path and tack it on to the end. The paths are delimited by semicolons.
