    the tutorial you reffered....http://www.androdna.com/programming/...utorial_1.html
    explains......
    The normal procedure for installing this library is to download (use CVS to get the Qt4 version) and compile it (at a DOS prompt, type qmake and then make). This will compile the library and generate a dll.
    but how??
    now how to so this??

    You can download precompiled version for Windows, so you don't have to build it yourself.
    There is nice explanation on the library site, here you'll find how to write example app using this library: link
    You are using windows, right (your profile pic) ?

    But first of all - do you know how to use external library with Qt project ?

    Keep reading. "The quick way to install the library is to download a precompiled version for Windows XP.". It even includes a link to download the precompiled version...

    by the way... qextserialport has moved to googlecode:
    http://code.google.com/p/qextserialport/

    there is a note on the sourceforge project home page:
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/qextserialport/
