Using open source Qt creator 4.10.2



  • Hi,

    We have an application which is running with 4.3.2 QT creator open source with qt kit 5.3.2.

    I need to port this to 4.10.2 open source with qt kit 5.13.2.

    This is the procedure i followed.

    I installed 5.13.2 version with qt unified installer where i get a licensed qt creator 4.11.0 (I guess 4.11.0 also supports 5.13.2 kit though it is based on 5.14.0)which is valid for 7 days. I can configure and build the project and run my application successfully

    For open source software IDE, I installed open source 4.10.2 Qt creator IDE only. I need to use the 5.13.2 kit with the open source IDE. It asks me to configure the project. Could you please help me to configure it if the procedure I have followed is right?

    Thanks
    Sachin

    For open source code, I installed 4.10.2 seperately

    Once again, Qt Creator is just an IDE, you could use Visual Studio also to edit your code and build or even build from console!
    Please understand this:

    • Qt Creator ==> code editing and build automatisation (per mouse click)
    • Qt MaintenanceTool: application to install/remove/update your Qt installed softwares (IDE, pre-build Qt Kits, etc.)
    • Per build Qt kits, are here to help you to create software base on Qt C++ framework. So you don't have to build it from source (which you could do if you want)!

    Open Source vs. Licenced version just change the right you have, not Qt Framework it self!

    Please also take time to read the Qt Creator documentation, to understand the basics ==> https://doc.qt.io/qtcreator/creator-configuring-projects.html

    If your project file has errors, you have to show us the error messages to got help!



  • Thank you. I understand in a better way now after going through the link.

    The issue is, Is there any way to install open source using unified installer available in qt website? Because , I feel i wont be able to develop after the license period in this version. Please let me know if I am right: The License is for the entire frame work and I wont be able to develop with Qt after the license period.

    Regarding the current status of errors:
    When I open my open source version after copying QTCreator 4.10.2 community version to C:\Qt\Tools\ and running the exe,

    I get this error when i try to open myproject

    I don't believe that you understand what you are doing!

    • You don't have to move installed software from one location to another, MaintenanceTool is there for that. To ensure software are installed in the right place
    • According to your screen copy, you have select an UWP (Universal Windows Platform) Kit... Do you met the requirements? ==> https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/winrt-support.html


  • Ok, Can I install open source version from Maintenance tool? I understand that the paths are not set after i moved the installer location.

    It is not able to locate the kit.

  • @SachinBhat I would suggest you to completely cleanup your Qt installation to start for clean situation:

    This should work.

    What I don't understand, is that you have build your project with an older Qt version (5.3.2). So you should have a basic knowledge about how Qt works, which don't seems to be the case.

    Hi,

    @SachinBhat don't move stuff around like that. Part of the installation process is to ensure that paths are setup correctly so just going and putting stuff somewhere else on your drive is breaking things.

    If you want to change the location of your installation, do as @KroMignon already wrote.

    If you want to use the OpenSource version, skip the login details.

    Thank you for this as this is what I was looking for. Even if i skip the login details I get this in Help/about Qt Creator

    Will check what happens after the license is expired.

    I did all the things just for this

    Thanks

    I am using an existing code base to add new features. So, as I said, I am new to this. Apologise if i have irritated you

    No problem, I can understand that it is complicated to start with Qt. But if you have an existing Qt project, there must be someone how has wrote it. I think it would be easier for you to configure your workstation with his help



  • Unfortunately, the person who worked on this isn't in our team now. I would document my learnings so that it would be helpful for my team in future

    Thanks for your diligent support.

    I will mark this as solved

  • Hi,

    The one which is downloaded using qt unified installer doesn't have open source version. I found the place where one can install the open source version here https://download.qt.io/archive/qt/5.14/5.14.0/

    This is helpful for someone who is trying to find the open source version just like me

    Thanks
