This is a checklist of items and actions that must be performed to build/develop DeVeDe on Windows.
First there are several packages that must be installed. All packages are for x86 and not 64bit and all python packages are for version 2.6.*.
If you plan on building windows executables for distribution you will also want to follow these steps.
You may also want to download the GTK+ Preference Tool. You should be able to find it at http://sourceforge.net/projects/gtk-win/files/. This tool will allow you to set the GTK theme on your Windows user account.
At this point DeVeDe should be running in a development environment on your computer.
