QT online installer stuck on Windows



  • Hi!
    I wanted to install Qt 5.15 on my new windows 10 machine but whenever I start the online installer, it gets stuck on the fetching metainformations screen (either 0-1% or nothing).
    Moreover, when I close the installer, it keeps running in the background with 10-15% UC.
    After further investigations, it doesn't download anything after 1 or 2 seconds (that explains why it is stuck).
    I wanted to use https://github.com/JKSH/QtSdkRepoChooser as mentioned in other posts but it seems to be discontinued and not working with the current online installer.
    So I don't know what to do now since offline installer is not an option anymore for FOSS users... Should I give up on the framework altogether? :/

    Should I give up on the framework altogether? :/

    Switch to Linux, here the installer works fast.

    On Windows - the only recommendation I have is to retry & wait longer. In my case it sometimes goes through after several minutes of waiting.
