How to get Qt5.15 on Windows ?



  • Greetings !

    It seems that there are no available binary builds for Qt5.15... unfortunately, Qt5.12 doesn't cut it for me, and I haven't been able to compile Qt5.15 on Windows. I've tried with both MSVC2019 and MinGW 8.1, but really, the first attempt at running configure fails in either case, saying that the qtbase.pro file doesn't exist.

    It does exist, in the qtbase subfolder, and it is possible to try to build from within that folder. But such attempts always end in failure, for different reasons, depending on whether I'm building with MSVC or MinGW.

    So I have a few questions:

    • is there someone around here who managed to compile Qt5.15 on Windows, and can testify that it should work ?
    • if yes, is the following documentation the one I should be following ? https://doc.qt.io/qt-5/windows-building.html
    • if yes, then is there a way to download a pre-built Qt5.15 for Windows ? Because I'm obviously not able to follow that documentation properly.

    Note that I'm using a qt-everywhere-src-5.15.2 tarball. I have no recollection of how I managed to download that, and I can't find it anymore, but it came from qt.io. However, should I perhaps be cloning from git ?

    There are - why do you think there are not? Use the online installer - it provides Qt 5.15.x.

    Agree with @jsulm. The installer is at https://www.qt.io/download-open-source
