That page is a bit out of date, as it refers to Qt4, which corresponds to gazebo7 and under, which never fully worked on windows. Gazebo8 is currently the only one that builds properly in our CI server using Visual Studio 2013. Gazebo9 doesn't work in our CI server because Visual Studio 2017, but we haven't recompiled those dependencies for VS 2017.

  • https://build.osrfoundation.org/job/gazebo-ci-gazebo9-windows7-amd64/

We should update the tutorial to at least describe how to build gazebo8.
