    welcome to devnet

    You can use also MSVC 2005 on windows 7. There should be no problem. I am using MSVC 2005 with Qt 4.7.x. I guess you may even continue with your old build of Qt 4.3.0, if you really want to do that.

    For MSVC 2010 you may use the "pre-build libs,":http://releases.qt-project.org/qt4/source/qt-win-opensource-4.8.2-vs2010.exe but those are dynamic. Those are recent.

    Probably you should start with this "wiki page":http://qt-project.org/wiki/Support_for_Windows



  • I am getting following error when opening VS2005 on windows 7 .

    Visual Studio 2005 has a known compatibility issue with this version of windows.

    I do not remember what messages I have gotten when I initially installed msvc 2005 on my windows 7 64 bit machine. However, it is working. There is a service pack you need. That I remember for sure.

    Here is some "information":http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/aa948853.aspx . There you find also a reference to the service pack required.
