[SOLVED] Two sets of applications in SDK install?



  • Hello,

    I recently installed QtSDK 1.2 and started having some problems with the documentation. I have reported that bug, but in the exploration of it, I discovered that the installation also has two sets of same applications, only different in size. They are assistant.exe, designer.exe and linguist.exe, and the folders are

    C:\QtSDK\QtCreator\bin
    C:\QtSDK\Desktop\Qt\4.8.0\mingw\bin

    Can someone explain is this intended to be this way (because I see a lot of sloppyness in whole Maintenance app and the Installation process)

    Yes, that is intended.

    Qt Creator comes with its own Qt. This is to avoid Qt Creator breaking when somebody breaks his Desktop/Qt which is after all intended for developers to experiment and work with. Accidents do happen, they are twice as bad when they break your favorite IDE that you need to fix the breakage;-)



  • Thanks a lot for the answer!

    Cheers!
