How to compile with Window Embedded 7



  • I am a new hand.
    I want to make an app using in the window embedded 7 system.
    What components should I install ?
    UWP ARMv7 or Android ARMv7 or ????

    Does it compile it which is the same in the window 10 ???

    Windows Embedded Standard 7 or Windows Embedded Compact 7?

    Neither of these.

    • UWP is for Windows 10 only.
    • Android is not Windows.

    Your choice depends on the CPU of your Windows Embedded device.

    • If your CPU is x86/x64 (Intel or AMD), then you can install the MinGW or MSVC versions -- these will work on both your Windows 10 PC and your Windows Embedded 7 device.
    • If your CPU is ARM, then you can't use Qt from that installer -- you must compile Qt from source.

    My CPU is ARM , How could I compile QT from source ?
    What is source ? Operation System ? Source code ?
    What do I need to prepare ?

    "Source" means the Qt source code.

    You need to install a compiler that can produce executables for the ARM version of Windows 7. Use this compiler to build the Qt DLLs.

    Start by reading https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/windows-building.html and ask here if something is unclear.
