How to move a project from a Win7 64 ms vs2010 to another Win7 64 mingw?

  • First post to the forum. When I copy a project from my work PC (with the ms vs2010 compiler) to my home PC (with the free mingw compiler), and on my home PC press the green build and run button in QTCreator it complains about:

    Failure to read QMAKESPEC conf file c:\QT\4.8.3\mkspecs\win32-msvc2010\qmake.conf

    When I check the build / run tool chains it says it is using mingw. When I start a project from scratch on my home pc everything works. Is there an official guide for sharing projects between compilers in the same OS environment? Or is mingw not fully supported on windows?

  • Did you copy the file too? If so delete it and than open in Creator again. Or just press "No" on "Load the settings from different environment" dialog... and it should work.

    Try to rerun qmake to regenerate the Makefiles.
