Important: Please read the Qt Code of Conduct -


  • Hi:

    I'm a total newbie here.

    I have QtCreator 5.14 installed (along with QtQuick 2.12)
    I'm working in Windows 10 (64 bit).

    I'm having difficulty:

    1. Finding the latest version of the QtQuick2 libraries
    2. How to to update to those latest libraries.

    Can someone please point me in the right direction to get started?


  • @JuanBucz Hi and welcome to Qt Forum.

    First QtCreator is an IDE (like Visual Studio Code), with feature which helps to creator program with Qt libraries.
    Qt is a set of C++ libraries to help to create multi-platform applications ==>
    A Qt Kit as a Qt version (last release is Qt 5.14.0) for a specific platform (Windows, IOs, Android, Linux, etc.)

    To install use Qt Maintenance Kit ==>

  • Hi:

    I still have some confusion regarding this.

    I currently have the following configuration:
    Qt Creator 4.11.0
    Based on Qt 5.14.0 (MSVC 2017, 32 bit)
    Built on Dec 10 2019
    From revision 017ed74400

    I'm trying to get the SplitView and ShortCut (with sequences) working.
    I see that SplitView requires QtQuick 2.5
    ShortCut (with sequences) requires QtQuick 2.14

    Some questions here:

    1. Probably silly question - is 2.5 a more recent release than 2.14? So if I take the latest version, wouldn't both controls be supported?

    2. On pages at compile time, I don't get any error when import 2.14. However at runtime, I get "QtQuick version 2.14 is not installed" What do I need to do to correct that?

    Again being a newbie, things are still a little confusing here.


  • @JuanBucz Do you have a full Qt installation? Which version is it? The version of QtQuick that is available to you is determined by the overall Qt version. It is not possible (as far as I know) to update only the QtQuick libraries - you must update your whole Qt installation.

  • @JuanBucz said in QtQuick2:

    is 2.5 a more recent release than 2.14?

    no, the current version is 2.14

  • @JuanBucz That just tells me which version of QtCreator you have installed. I suspect (but am not sure as I have never tried to do it) that you can install QtCreator independently of a full Qt installation. My Qt installation is in C:\Qt. Under this I have:


    It is under 5.9.6\ and 5.12.1\ where the Qt versions that are available to me are installed.

  • I clobbered everything and did a new install and everything seems to be OK now.

    @JuanBucz Just a note (as it is a common mistake): if you want to know which Qt versions you have installed do NOT check this "About Qt Creator" dialog. Because it only tells you which Qt version was used to build QtCreator. Either check your Kits or start the Qt Maintenance Tool and see which Qt versions are checked.
