All fine and good,
But I couldn't even find out how to install it.
Nothing on the webpage. There is an INSTALL.TXT, it says change into
src, and run build.bat (for windows)
I did that 9yes fpc (2.5.1) in path.
I get some output that it compiles something, but no exe is created.
so how to I get some fpgui.exe?
