Thanks to Vaclav Juza Krusader is ported to Windows. The downside is that it's not yet much usable because of crashes.

More info and compile instructions are available with the next url:

Compile - Install Howto for Krusader on Windows XP (not yet tested on Vista but it should work).
Thanks to Vaclav Juza!

In the future we could offer a Krusader.exe when the most important bugs are fixed, so that you don't need to compile Krusader.

- Install the KDE installer http://winkde.org/pub/kde/ports/win32/installer/
(tested with version 0.9.2). See also http://windows.kde.org/
During install, choose the following option:
+ installation path in this example was c:\kde4
+ install mode: developer installation
+ compiler mode: mingw
+ select installation of binary and developement files of the following
packages (Note that some packages are not in any category and one
needs to view all to find them):
* mingw
* gcc (including g++)
* cmake
* dbus
* qt4
* kdelibs
* kdebase
* ... (TODO: check if this list is complete)

- Create the source directory for krusader and checked out svn
(you can use TortoiseSVN for that http://tortoisesvn.net/)
In this example, c:/kde4/src/krusader_kde4 was used.
SVN url: http://krusader.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/krusader/trunk/krusader_kde4

- Create the directory for generated files and cd to it
In this example, c:/kde4/build/krusader_kde4 was used

- Open the windows terminal (cmd.exe) and go to the build directory
Code:
c:
cd \kde4\build\krusader_kde4


- So as to avoid a cmake error, that it can't find some kde library which is for sure installed,
it is necessary to make the following fix:
There is a strange problem, that in cmake modules
c:\kde4\share\apps\cmake\modules\KDELibsDependencies.cmake
and
c:\kde4\share\apps\cmake\modules\KDEPimLibsDependencies.cmake
there are wrong hardcoded paths to the installation directory (D:/kde/kde-mingw),
it is necessary to replace it manually to c:/kde4.

- Run cmake in the build directory with the following parameters:
Code:
c:\kde4\bin\cmake.exe -G "MinGW Makefiles" c:/kde4/src/krusader_kde4 -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=c:/kde4 -DCMAKE_INCLUDE_PATH=c:/kde4/include -DCMAKE_LIBRARY_PATH=c:/kde4/lib -DKDEWIN_DIR:PATH=c:/kde4 -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=debugful


- Run make from mingw:
Code:
C:\MinGW\bin\mingw32-make.exe install


- Known severe run-time problems on windows at the moment (19 Jun 2008):
+ Konfigurator (launched even in the first run)
+ Slow start before the splashscreen appears
+ If C: is put to the location bar, you get incorrect content of panel.
Using file:///C:/ is more reliable
+ Not possible to navigate inside ftp
+ ...

btw. ALL Krusader install information can be found in the INSTALL file

Wow, this is great news!

I just installed my first copy of linux ever (ubuntu on a vm) and the first thing I looked for was a file manager like far (www.farmanager.com) which itself is a copy of Midnight Commander or Norton Commander.

First of all: thanks Frank for your quick response (in the other thread)

I almost made a new thread to ask something about the installation of krusader in windows, but I found this thread instead.
I got a message saying "libkdecore.dll" couldn't be found when I tried to start the "krusader.exe".
I installed the KDE for windows but I didn't choose "developer installation" so I'm going to try that first. (I'll let you know if that solves my problem)

So besides the thank you this is maybe a useless post.

Krusader for Windows is a "proof of concept". It works but you should consider is as alpha-software.
Krusader was developed for the *nix-KDE platform for the past 9 years ... and not for Windows, now it can be compiled and used on Windows, but many things are needed to be done to make it more usable under Windows.
If you want to try Krusader under Windows, you need to compile it.
When we have joined KDE Extragear, maybe some progress will be made, and Krusader can maybe added into the KDE-Windows installer so that you can install Krusader with one mouse-click under Windows

If you want to use a good filemanager under Windows, use Total Commander, Directory Opus, ... or an other good OFM filemanger.
