0001 The Short version
0002 ------------------
0003 In order to run Kile on Windows, you'll need:
0005 1. Kile and its supporting KDE libraries.  The KDE-Windows installer should take care of this for you.
0006 2. A TeX installation available somewhere in your PATH.  The default options when installing MikTeX should make this happen
0007 3. Viewers for whatever file types you plan to generate (PDF, PS, DVI, etc)
0009 Helping Kile Find Helper Apps
0010 -----------------------------
0011 The most common problem you'll prbably encounter when trying to use Kile on Windows is Kile not being able to find all the supporting applications it depends on (latex, dvips, etc).  If this happens, the easiest solution is to just add the directories containing these programs to your PATH variable (details below).  To see which programs Kile is able to find, run the system checker (Settings -> System Checker) and see what you get.  
0013 Note: acroread does not by default add itself to your PATH so you probably won't be able to use it directly.  However, if you have Adobe Reader setup as your default PDF viewer, setting Kile to System Default for ViewPDF should still work.  You could also just add C:\Program Files\Adobe\path\to\acrord32.exe to your path but it isn't really necessary.
0015 Setting your PATH
0016 -----------------
0017 At a minimum, latex.exe and friends should be in your PATH.  MikTeX will do this for you during the install process, but if it doesn't work for some reason, you can add it manually by:
0018 Vista: 1. Right click Computer -> Properties
0019        2. Click Advanced System Settings.
0020        3. Click Environment Variables button
0021        4. Find the PATH entry and double-click it.
0022        5. Add your LaTeX path to the start.  ie, add "C:\Program Files\MikTex 2.7\miktex\bin;" ot something similar to the start of the line (without the quotes)
0023        6. Add other PATHs as appropriate.  If it's not already, you may want to add your KDEROOT\bin directory also (for example, "C:\kderoot\bin;")
0025 XP: 1. Right click My Computer -> Properties
0026     2. Click the Advanced tab
0027     3. Click the Environment Variables button
0028     4. Proceed as above
