What may be the cause of the following error while building the code?



  • unresolved externals: debug/file.exe
    File not found debug/file.exe
    how can i fix this issue?



  • Post the whole log here. With strings you've posted I can say what where is some unresolved external dependencies, to fix you need to resolve them ;)

    By log did you mean the whole error message.



  • when you compile your project compiler shows you this error, right? I need the whole error, not just last lines...

  • Look like where is conflict between definitions of main... Do you use any libraries other than Qt's?



  • and you must use "main" as start point not windows equivalent like WinMain, wmain etc...

    actually i was trying to make various subproject with one main function.



  • Make sure you projects not containing a main function are using a lib template, not app.
