Qt SDK version 1.2.1 fails to install

  • Hello,

    I am not new to Qt. I do all of my development on Linux, but I have a published project on sourceforge that I want to update. To compile the windows version of the project, I need to install QtCreator on windows (which I have done several times before, using a virtual machine).

    I downloaded the online installer program - QtSdk-online-win-x86-v1_2_1.exe, but every time I try to run this program, I get the error message "This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect". I am running inside a windows XP VM using VirtualBox, which has always worked in the past. I have tried two versions of XP, and created several new VM's trying to get this to work, but I always get the error message and the online installer won't run.

    Any ideas on how to get the installer to run?


  • Hi,
    Same problems for me with both online and offline installers, under a windows xp sp3 running under parallels virtual machine on a macbook pro intel 64bits

    SDKs were not updated for ages. Installing QtCreator and Qt libs separately is a much better solution.

  • Hello, I had the same problem (XP-SP2 in VBox), I installed vcredist 2008 ( and the installer worked fine after that.
