QT 4.7.0 - Windows - Cannot find QSslSocket after recompiling static QT

  • Hello!

    I've downloaded & installed QT 4.7.0 Windows version (2010 05)
    I had a program which compiled just fine. I wanted to compile it statically, knowing the "disadvantages" of that.

    I proceeded like this:

    1. Open QT Command Prompt
    2. D:\bin\Qt2010_05\qt>configure -static -debug-and-release -opensource -qt-sql-sqlite -qt-zlib -qt-gif -qt-libpng -qt-libjpeg -fast
    3. D:\bin\Qt2010_05\qt>mingw32-make sub-src

    Everything went fine. But, the problem had arisen when tried to compile again the app. I've got this error:

    @In file included from ../app/include/program_options.h:16,
    ../app/include/smtp_connection.h:110: error: ISO C++ forbids declaration of 'QSslSocket' with no type
    ../app/include/smtp_connection.h:110: error: expected ';' before '*' token@

    The line of code where the error is triggered:
    QSslSocket* m_connection;

    But I've included:
    #include <QSslSocket>

    Does anyone know what I've done wrong? And maybe some hints on how to fix it?

    More details:
    Windows 7 x64
    QT 4.7.0 - 2010.05 from website - opensource version

    Did Qt's configure pick up your OpenSSL installation? Check the output of configure.

  • Well, it says no.

    I thought it's by default ON.

    I'll try and see if I find SSL already built for windows, as until now I've found just the source files on openssl's webpage :(
