    Add the "C:\Panda3D-1.10.7\bin" path to the Path variable. Create an empty project in Qt Creator IDE:

    Select "Desktop Qt 5.15.1 MSVC2019 32 bit":

    Add these settings to the ".pro" file:

    INCLUDEPATH += "C:\Panda3D-1.10.7\include"
    LIBS += -L"C:\Panda3D-1.10.7\lib"
    LIBS += -llibp3framework -llibpanda -llibpandaexpress -llibp3dtool -llibp3dtoolconfig -llibp3direct
    

    Create the "main.cpp" file. Copy the first example from the manual: Creating a New Panda3D Application

    main.cpp

    #include "pandaFramework.h"
    #include "pandaSystem.h"
    
    int main(int argc, char *argv[]) {
      // Open a new window framework
      PandaFramework framework;
      framework.open_framework(argc, argv);
    
      // Set the window title and open the window
      framework.set_window_title("My Panda3D Window");
      WindowFramework *window = framework.open_window();
    
      // Here is room for your own code
    
      // Do the main loop, equal to run() in python
      framework.main_loop();
      framework.close_framework();
      return (0);
    }
    

    Switch Qt Creator to “Release”:
