Hi Akshay,

Not sure what you mean with development and normal free version, but let me
explain the two options you have to build OpendTect plugins, and both are

1) In OpendTect v4.6 environment
Download OpendTect, together with the developers package using the
OpendTect Installation Manager (
http://www.opendtect.org/index.php/products/download). It has binaries for
OpendTect, Qt and Coin, so no need to build all those yourself.
The developers package also contains a tutorial plugin with documentation.

2) From scratch
Get the latest code from our SVN repository (
No binaries here, just source code and you need to build everything,
including third-party packages from scratch.

I would recommend to start with option 1). The set-up is pretty easy.
Install the mentioned packages, start OpendTect, go to the Utilities menu
and select 'Tools - Create Plugin Development Environment'. After this your
environment is ready and you can build the Hello and Tutorial plugins.
More information, also on the required build tools, can be found here:

Good luck.

Best regards,
