Having issues with creating a QT GUI and other Applications
Hey Folks, just was wondering if anyone knew how to fix this issue I am having..
When I go to File<New File or Project, and the template screen comes up, I am not getting all of the features that I should be getting? Basically, I wanted to test out a QT Gui application, however, I don't have an Applications tab under the New(Template) screen,which is where QT Gui Application is located, along with some other templates.. I will post a pic of the issue..
Maybe you can see what my issue is, I am having a difficult time explaining :)
The templates that are available depends on the Qt versions installed. It you have no Qt set up in Creator, then it won't offer to create Qt applications.
Check Tools > Options( > build and run) > Qt versions. Are the versions you expect there?
If you want to test an existing Qt Gui application, then try to open file or project and click on the .pro-file that is provided by the application.
Ok- I went to Tools, Options > Build and Run > Qt versions, and this is what I got.. :
I am not wanting to test existing Gui applications, I would like to develop my own gui applications. I have searched all over online, and I haven't been able to find a solution. I downloaded it to my linux VM and it worked like a charm, and then I re-downloaded it for my Windows 7 VM and it didn't work there, either. Is it a windows 7 issue?
A new version was released today, I think.. Maybe it was just that version? I am installing the new one currently.
nope, it didn't work, I don't have any templates still. What is wrong with this application?
As Tobias wrote - you need to add Qt version and a corresponding tool chain.
Take a look a those links to see how to do it:
Ok- I added the qmake and everything, now It is just telling me I need a compiler. Does QT come with a compiler?
No it does not. You need either MSVC or mingw - depending on what Qt was build with.
