Using a QRCode Reader in FireMonkey

Hello,

I'm developing in RadStudio C++ Builder a FireMonkey Application that needs to open a JPEG Image (or an Image Stream) and check if there's a QRCode in that image. If there is one, read it.

I have spent hours googling for libraries and found one that looked like promising, called ZBar

The problem is that the docs for the instalation of this library is just for VisualStudio users. I don't know how to install it using RAD Studio. Can anyone please help me?

Thanks for your reply, but I'm using C++ Builder. I have found many libraries that can read QR Code, my problem is that I'm not able to install them using C++ Builder. The proccess to install them on their respectives docs don't work on C++ Builder (or I'm making it wrong, what I think that's the most probably cause :P).

ZXing seems to be a good library to use, I've tried to install it using the proccess described in the docs and got a lot of errors right in the beginning. (I can copy the errors here if it can be helpful for my question)

It seems that the proccess to install it is different in C++ Builder

EDIT:

I'm trying to install following these steps: https://github.com/glassechidna/zxing-cpp#building-using-cmake
