1st you need to build Quickbook.exe - as I discovered to my cost - the latest trunk version is essential!

CD in a command window to \trunk\tools\quickbook\ and type bjam

You need to copy quickbook.exe to somewhere convenient. I used C:\program files\quickbook and remember where you have put it!

/trunk/tools/quickbook/doc/html/quickbook/intro.html is your 1st guide.

I:\trunk\tools\quickbook\doc\quickbook.qbk is a text file from which you can learn a lot, and use a something to check you can

There are various other config things that may be a hassle, but once you get going it is great :-)

Have fun!
