Compiling Qt for a 64-bit machine

  • Ok, so for various reasons I am following this guide: http://qt-project.org/wiki/Building_Qt_Desktop_for_Windows_with_MinGW on compiling and installing Qt for a 64-bit machine. I am at the step where you run the command jom /W /S -j4. Unfortunately I just receive the error: Error: File MakeFile doesn't exist.

    NOTE: This is under the section Build Qt with MinGW for a x64 target and sub-section Build Qt

    I really am not sure what that means or how to deal with it. I don't have MSVS, I am running this all from the command prompt. Within the tutorial the only things I have changed is my version of Qt from 4.7.4 to 4.8.4, and I have been changing my cmd entries to reflect that.

    You don't need to have Visual Studio to get the Visual C++ compiler - it's available for free in Windows SDK and in MSVS Express.

    Try falling back to mingw-make, maybe it will work.
