Windows 7 and Qt 5



  • Do I have to download "Qt libraries 5.0.0 for Windows (VS 2010 406 MB)" to develop on Windows 7? Do I really need Visual Studio 2010 or there is a separated SDK?
    Nothing for Windows 8 and Firefox OS?

    You can try losing a few days to compile it with MinGW if you prefer ;)

    No, you don't need Visual Studio, just the MSVC compiler, which is available for example in Windows SDK, too. Windows 8 is also supported, the same package applies.

    No idea about Firefox OS. Definitely not supported officially, but you can try to cross compile.



  • I don't think there will be Qt on Firefox OS soon as there is no native code support.

    Can you please suggest the link for Windows 7 32bit?

    Link to what? Windows 7 itself? It's available from Digital River Content, if you have a valid license. Link to Windows 7 SDK? "Let me Google that for you":http://lmgtfy.com/?q=windows+7+sdk. Any of those results will do.

    Sorry for being nasty ;) Also, preinstalled packages require ICU libraries to be present. You do not need to install Perl, Python and Ruby - those are for compilation of Qt only.
