Overview

As you already know, the normal Windows install doesn't use KDE, so if you want to install Amarok, you can't just download the Amarok package. You must install a compatible compiler first. In this Handbook page you'll find how to download, install and run Amarok in the Windows operating system.

How to download

If you run into any difficulties, please visit the Amarok on Windows wiki page where the latest links will be kept updated. Otherwise, use the latest at the following links:

Amarok-2.4-Base-Packages

Here you can download the Windows installer provided by Nitrostemp, in which you will find both the Amarok package and the needed KDE compiler for Windows.

Amarok-2.4-Only

If you already have Amarok installed, you can update to the newest version from here: Amarok-2.4-Only. This package will update the files and save you downloading everything again.

How to install

The installation is very simple, just run the downloaded .exe file.
