Windows 8 Pro make.exe crashes when deploying to Symbian device

  • Hello everyone,

    I have started to familiarize myself with Qt using Windows 7 64-bit edition earlier. Now I recently updated my Windows to version 8 Pro (also 64-bit).

    After a fresh installation of Qt I tried to deploy test project to my E7-00 receiving this error:

    22:41:14: Running build steps for project Testproject...
    22:41:14: Configuration unchanged, skipping qmake step.
    22:41:14: Starting: "D:\QtSDK\Symbian\SDKs\Symbian3Qt474\epoc32\tools\make.exe" release-gcce -w
    qtcreator_ctrlc_stub: Command line failed: D:/QtSDK/Symbian/SDKs/Symbian3Qt474/epoc32/tools/make.exe release-gcce -w
    22:41:14: The process "D:\QtSDK\Symbian\SDKs\Symbian3Qt474\epoc32\tools\make.exe" crashed.
    Error while building project Testproject (target: Symbian Device)
    When executing build step 'Make'

    Anyone have some ideas? Simulator works fine and I get my Testproject to run with it, it's only the Symbian Device deploying.

    You might get better help over at They should know the specifics better than anyone else.

    Frankly: I doubt anyone ever tried running the Symbian tools on windows 8 ever.
