How to select the component just for C/C++ study?

  • Hi,
    I want to use Qt Creator as an IDE for C/C++ study, namely, learning C/C++ textbook using Qt Creator. I download "qt-opensource-windows-x86-5.14.1.exe".
    When installing, I encountered the following picuture:

    It says that I need to select some components, but I'm confused...
    My computer is win10-64bit, can I only select the "MinGW 7.3.0 64-bit" component which located in "Developer and Designer Tools"?
    Just for C/C++ textbook, so as simple as possible.

    Best regards.

    Hi @fantasyhpu,

    you can either select MinGW 64-bit together with Qt 5.14.1 MinGW 64-bit, or MinGW 32-bit together with Qt 5.14.1 MinGW 32-bit.

    If you don't want to write Qt programs, you could even omit Qt itself; but then you cannot use the qmake build system, you would have to use e.g. CMake.
