include MinGW include in QT Creator on Windows

  • Hello,

    I am using QT Creator 4.11.0 with MinGW on Windows 10 and I am trying to include header files from MinGW include path. They are visible by autocomplete but code parser complains it can't find it and compilation fails as well. Some 5 years old post I have found on the internet described the same problem and there it was solved by adding to path


    In my case the path was already set and the only thing that helped me was adding include folder manually in .pro file:

    INCLUDEPATH += D:/Qt/Tools/mingw730_64/lib/gcc/x86_64-w64-mingw32/7.3.0/include/

    The code compiles and works fine, however now I get a warning "The code model couldn't parse included file, which might lead to incorrect code completion and highlighting" with several header files listed from the newly included folder.

    The question is: is this warning an issue of Clang plugin and I am adding this include path correctly? Or should I set up MinGW in QT Creator in some different way?

    What confuses me is that in the debug folder for any project I see .qmake.stash file with the following content:

        D:/Qt/Tools/mingw730_64/lib/gcc/x86_64-w64-mingw32/7.3.0/include/c++ \
        D:/Qt/Tools/mingw730_64/lib/gcc/x86_64-w64-mingw32/7.3.0/include/c++/x86_64-w64-mingw32 \
        D:/Qt/Tools/mingw730_64/lib/gcc/x86_64-w64-mingw32/7.3.0/include/c++/backward \
        D:/Qt/Tools/mingw730_64/lib/gcc/x86_64-w64-mingw32/7.3.0/include \
        D:/Qt/Tools/mingw730_64/lib/gcc/x86_64-w64-mingw32/7.3.0/include-fixed \
        D \
        /Qt/Tools/mingw730_64/lib/gcc/x86_64-w64-mingw32/7.3.0/;D \
        /Qt/Tools/mingw730_64/lib/gcc/;D \
        /Qt/Tools/mingw730_64/x86_64-w64-mingw32/lib/;D \
        /Qt/Tools/mingw730_64/lib/;D \

    I am only guessing, since my understanding of the processes here is not deep, but it seems the include path in question is already known.
