Change Compiler, from MinGW to MSVC not possible?

  • I try to switch from MinGW to MSVC but it is not working?
    Here is the Default kit :
    Default Kit.jpg
    And here is the "New" Visual C++ Kit I tried to build:
    MSVC Kit.jpg
    Trouble is, when I try to make a new Project, I can't select the new Kit:
    Will not allow MSVC Kit.jpg
    I suspect Qt is not happy about the "Missing Qt Version" in the new Kit?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    To use MSVC, you need a Qt version built with that compiler. You can't mix and match C++ libraries built with MinGW and MSVC.
