[SOLVED] Issue Compiling Qt 4.8.0 with Visual Studio 11 under Windows 7: CLucene
FloGe last edited by
I am trying to compile Qt 4.8.0 x86 with Visual Studio 11 Developer preview under Windows 7 x64. I have Windows SDK 6.0A, 6.1 and 7.1 installed.
I never had issues compiling Qt from version 4.6.2 up to version 4.7.4 under Windows XP/Vista/7 x86 and x64 with Visual Studio 2008 and 2010.
The configure line is: (msvc2010 because of the hack described below)
[quote]configure -debug-and-release -opensource -vcproj -qmake -qt-sql-sqlite -platform win32-msvc2010 -mp -system-zlib -system-libpng -no-libjpeg[/quote]
From "here":http://projects.developer.nokia.com/qt_metro/wiki, I applied this change:
[quote]As there isn't yet a VS2011 mkspec, you should build with the VS2010 mkspec. Just modify this line in QTDIR\mkspecs\win32-msvc2010\qmake.conf to read:
QMAKE_COMPILER_DEFINES += _MSC_VER=1700 WIN32
This will tell the compiler which symbol prefix (used to identify the compiler) to put in the libs.[/quote]
And from "here":http://projects.developer.nokia.com/qt_metro/wiki/PatchingJSCore, I applied this change:
When you find make_pair() without template arguments and there is an integer parameter, add a + sign to the integer to make it to an rvalue. This should fix compile errors that complain about not being able to convert an unsigned int to an unsigned int&. See this bug for details. When you encounter other make_pair() calls with template arguments, simply remove the template portion. E.g. make_pair<int, int>(1, 2) becomes make_pair(1, 2). Some insight on the issue can be found here.[/quote]
Those fixes helped with the first errors that occur when trying to compile Qt 4.8.0 with Visual Studio 11. So far, so good.
But now I ran into an issue with CLucene that wasn't mentioned on those pages:
C:\temp\qt\src\3rdparty\clucene\src\CLucene/util/VoidMap.h(33) : error C2039: 'iterator' : is not a member of 'lucene::util::Compare::_base'
C:\temp\qt\src\3rdparty\clucene\src\CLucene/util/VoidMap.h(34) : error C2039: 'const_iterator' : is not a member of 'lucene::util::Compare::_base'@
Here's the full dump (pasting would break the limit of 6000 chars for one post): http://pastebin.com/SmcrcZN3
Is there a way to fix these errors manually?
Or is there a way to disable building CLucene? In "this bug report":https://bugreports.qt-project.org/browse/QTBUG-2728, someone requested that feature but it never made it as a configure option as
[quote]This should not be a problem anymore. All supported platforms are supposed to be able to compile CLucene.[/quote]
which is sadly at the moment not the case for me.

Hi, I've stuck with the same issue and have made patch to resolve it: http://pastebin.com/4PRGbcGa
One more thing: I've not managed to start designer and assistant when build qt on my win7 with msvc2011. It is because of webkit and I don't know where, in it, actually the problem is. So I've built it without webkit and all works like a charm. Could you please post your experience with compiling webkit and lanching assistant?

Ok, I tested your patch. All compilation isses are fixed with it, thanks a lot!
I compiled with Webkit and then tried starting Assistant and Designer and indeed, they show up in the Task Manager but don't open, and terminate after some time again. But, when I renamed QtWebKit4.dll to _QtWebKit4.dll, they would work just fine. Also, if you check e.g. designer.exe with Dependency Walker, the QtWebKit4.dll is not mentioned as a dependency. Oh well, at least I don't have to recompile it all, just have to make sure the Webkit Dlls are hidden ;)
