You might have noticed there's KDevelop for Windows out now...
Which is already great in itself! But now it's also possible to install it via the super popular Windows package manager for Windows, Chocolatey.
Here's all you need (in case you already have Chocolatey installed on your system):
- Start a Command Prompt as Administrator user
- Type in
choco install kdevelopto install
- Start KDevelop via the Windows start menu
Note: KDevelop does not ship a C++ compiler, you'll need to either setup MinGW/GCC, Microsoft VC++ or even Clang on Windows.
Setup instructions here: https://userbase.kde.org/KDevelop4/Manual/WindowsSetup
choco it does:

Thanks a lot to Hannah von Reth for setting up the KDE Chocolatey category, including publishing the KDevelop package there!
As always, we ask you to provide us with any kind of feedback on the Windows version! It's much appreciated.
