I am unable to get the solution to compile after downloading

Disclaimer:
I've been away from C++ for a while. As a result, please forgive me for my ignorance.
However, should this solution be able to compile once downloaded or is further configuration required?

Any guidance is appreciated.

Issue:
I am unable to get the solution to compile after downloading it.

Hello, I apologize for not seeing your question sooner. It sounds like you do not have the QR rencode package downloaded from google. I have since moved the qr code library out of the main solution and placed it with the other dependencies. It still needs to be built if you want the qr code functionality but there is a new project file that builds it here: https://bitcoinqtmsvc2012.codeplex.com/SourceControl/latest#MSVC/BuildHelpers/buildqrcode.bat

Please make sure to read this file to understand the directory structure required by the solution and where the dependencies should be relative to the solution:

https://bitcoinqtmsvc2012.codeplex.com/SourceControl/latest#MSVC/BuildHelpers/README-FIRST.md

Also, the readme above has links to all the needed packages.

Good luck!
