warning: "gfortran.exe" is used by qmake, but "gcc.exe" is configured in the kit. Please update your kit (Desktop Qt 5.15.1 MinGW 64-bit) or choose a mkspec for qmake that matches your target environment better.



  • I have installed Qt creator 4.13.0 (based on Qt 5.15.0 (MSVC 2019, 64 bit)) on Windows 10 to build and install this code: GitHub/pchaumet/IF-DDA

    While building this, I got this message under Issues column:
    :-1: warning: "G:\Qt\Tools\mingw810_64\bin\gfortran.exe" is used by qmake, but "G:\Qt\Tools\mingw810_64\bin\gcc.exe" is configured in the kit.
    Please update your kit (Desktop Qt 5.15.1 MinGW 64-bit) or choose a mkspec for qmake that matches your target environment better.

    I am completely new to this forum, and I know almost nothing about this. Seeking help. What should I do?

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Since that project toys with QMAKE_CC, I would first try to build it from the command line.

    I don't know how to do it. I was trying to build according to these instructions:

    Windows installation:

    The application is based on Qt and MinGW and OpenGL

    To build and install it, you need to:

    1. install the Qt (5.0 or higher) with OpenGl and MinGW options including the QtCreator IDE

    2. Open cmd_install.pro file in the root directory with QtCreator.exe

    3. Build full project. You can run the executable cdm.exe directly from QtCreator.

    4. To run the application in stand-alone, you need to deploy it along with a few runtime libraries.
      For example if you built with Qt 5.3 (OpenGL included) and MinGW-4.8.2 option,
      the list of dll (in the Qt and MinGW-4.8.2 lib subdirectories)
      that have to be present in the same directory as cdm.exe:
      icudt52.dll
      icuin52.dll
      icuuc52.dll
      libgcc_s_dw2-1.dll
      libgfortran-3.dll
      libquadmath-0.dll
      libstdc++-6.dll
      libwinpthread-1.dll
      Qt5Core.dll
      Qt5Gui.dll
      Qt5OpenGL.dll
      Qt5PrintSupport.dll
      Qt5Sql.dll
      Qt5Svg.dll
      Qt5Widgets.dll

    Thank you.
