No Target Setup for desktop?
Hi, I have QtSDK 4.8.0 installed on Win7. When I create a new project in QtCreator, after I select my Project Type (Qt Gui app or Qt Console app), I get the 'Target Setup' screen with options for 'Qt Simulator' and 'Harmattan' but nothing for desktop. It won't let me proceed without choosing one of those 2 options - so when I debug my program I get a cellphone simulator instead of a MainWindow.
I want a desktop app, not a mobile app. Am I missing something obvious (or subtle, for that matter) about what's going on here? How do I generate a good old-fashioned desktop project? Is something just hosed with my installation?
Creator offers all targets that are supported by the Qt versions installed and known to Qt Creator. So my guess is that you have not registered a desktop Qt with creator. Please go to Tools->Options->Build & Run->Qt versions and check.
Under Tools->Options->Build&Run->Qt versions, I have the following under auto-detect:
With an error stating there's no tool chain to produce code for this version, which makes sense because I don't have mingw. I have Visual Studio 2005. The VS toolchain is in my list of auto-detected toolchains, but there doesn't seem to be a qmake target associated with it. How do I make one?
You need a Qt version and a compiler that is able to produce code that can link against that Qt version.
So either install a Qt version build with MVSC 2005 or a mingw tool chain.
