How to build Qmake for Visual studio project? specifically for QGLViewer for octomap library



  • I need to build an octomap on visual studio 2017. According to the website they have asked to do the following

    open a windows shell (e.g., from the START-Menu -> QT)
        cd octovis/src/extern/QGLViewer
        qmake -t vclib QGLViewer.pro -spec win32-msvc2010    (ignore any warnings)
    

    So I did the same but in windows command prompt terminal and when I feed the above commands it throws the following error:

    #qmake -t vclib QGLViewer.pro -spec win32-msvc2010 
    
    Could not find qmake spec 'win32-msvc2010'.
    Error processing project file: QGLViewer.pro 
    
     #qmake -t vclib QGLViewer.pro -spec win32-msvc2017 
    
    Could not find qmake spec 'win32-msvc2017'.
    Error processing project file: QGLViewer.pro
    

    What should I do in order to configure and generate a QGLViewer.vcxproj?

    Additional details:

    Project location : "C:\software\octomap-1.9.0\octomap-1.9.0\octovis\src\extern\QGLViewer"
    qmake location : C:\vcpkg\packages\qt5-base_x64-windows\tools\qt5
    Visual studio : 2017 ( Version 15.9.8)
    Any help in regards to this would be much appreciated as I have a very limited understanding on qmake.



  • just use

     #qmake -t vclib QGLViewer.pro -spec win32-msvc
