Hello all,

Sorry my intromission, but this thread interests me.

A couple of weeks ago I posted a problem which this thread now answered 
me: why my app wasn't working in a 64 bit Windows box (lots of JavaScript).

First, thank you for providing these information. Worst then make code 
that doesn't work is not know why :)

A little of topic, but does anyone knows how I can, then, compile Qt 
(I'm using 4.8.4), webkit+v8, so I can work in 32/64 bits Windows envs? 
I mean, if it's possible.

Sorry for my english.

Thank you very much,
