Using Mobility 1.1 APIs on Windows

  • I am trying to use the latest mobility APIs under Qt Creator under Windows. When I build them via the Visual Studio command prompt I get...

    cd src\ && "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\BIN\nmake.exe" -f Makefile
    cd global\ && "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\BIN\nmake.exe" -f Makefile
    cd mobilitysimulator\ && "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\BIN\nmake.exe" -f Makefile

    I also wonder why I have to build the APIs. Why can't these be provided ready built? Why can't they be automatically included (and upgraded) via Qt Creator?



  • I was building simulator (from repo) on Ubuntu (gcc) and I received the same error. I got past of it by making symlink private dir (use search to find missing .h file).

  • I have the exact same error while trying to compile qt mobility... fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'private/qsimulatordata_p.h': No such file or directory

    I also have the same complaint about the Qt SDKs: there are a gazillion of SDKs: on for Desktop development. I said 1? Not actually at least 3: mingw stuff, visual studio 2005, 2008 etc. Now to develop for mobile you have to install a separate Nokia QT SDK . If you want to use mobility you have to download AND compile separate mobility stuff. WHY is not only 1 SDK for both desktop & mobile? Most of the functionality in mobility should also be available in desktop too, like bluetooth or camera or even GPS for newer netbooks/laptops that come with integrated GPS. Anyway I must compile a big project in QT: all these different targets almost compile (like 90%) but none 100%. For example for mingw (desktop or mobile SDK one might ask :D?) I have compilation errors about operators new/delete not being defined. For Symbian target I get compilation/linking errors about the same operators having multiple definitions and for maemo (or meego?!?) target I have one header file in my project that happens to have the same name as a platform header, and the compiler includes the platform header so the compilation fails. Instead of trying to offer so much choices (mingw, vs2005, vs2008, vs2010 etc) why not pick one and make sure that single one is supported and works 100%

    Also: I have QT sdk (for desktop) installed, which installed QtCreator. Nokia QT SDK (for mobile) also comes with QtCreator. Can I use QtCreator from the desktop SDK to build mobile projects? I ask because they look the same, and I can not make them apart. Is there a difference?

    Also: what's with the different version naming: some QT SDKs are named Qt 4.7.0 for example while others are named like 2010.05 (I think this is the desktop one). Now I should know that 2010.5 is actually using version 4.7.0 of QT, but that's only because when the QT 4.7.0 was announced I got to the download page and remembered that 2010.05 is related to 4.7.0 (I made a note on a napkin). There is no way to go like Help->About and tell me the classic version of QT for one of the gazillion possible QT SDKs

    I am an idiot: I want one single .EXE setup file that installs everything and I do not have to compile myself anything, I just want to do NEXT NEXT NEXT FINISH

  • Last week Nokia released a tech preview of what you need. Try this...

    No need to compile separate components.


  • Thanks a lot Simon

  • I installed the Qt SDK 1.1 (Technology Preview) from the link Simon gave above;

    Now I am trying to compile the lbs example from:

    I am using QtCreator to compile. I am getting the following compile errors:

    So it seems the compiler can not find the QGeoPositionInfoSource header file and also does not recognize the namespace QtMobility.

    I have searched on my installation directory of the Qt SDK 1.1 for QGeoPositionInfoSource files and it finds them in the following locations:


    So it looks like QtMobilty was installed but QtCreator does not see it. I am using Windows 7 32 bit

    Can someone help?


  • Solved it.

    Stupid mistake, I forgot to add these lines in the .pro file:

    CONFIG += mobility
    MOBILITY += location
