I was just trying to see what updates the qemu.nsi file needed for

that it's been broken since October when we removed the Changelog file:

...and if you fix that it then fails because it's looking for
a subdirectory share/ in the install dir and it doesn't exist...

That's one of the problems which I mentioned in my other mail.

There should be a subdirectory share/ for Windows, too. The current special case with a flat file structure for Windows does not work and is one of the reasons why I still did not finish a working installer for 5.2.0.

I forgot to mention that some of the problems with the Meson build also occur on macOS with Homebrew: they always happen when a software package requires special compiler flags to find its include files or libraries, but the Meson build does not use the result from pkg-config for them.
