Problem opening a .pro file in Qt creator: Program stops responding
mcguirk last edited by
I am trying to get the Tiled Map Editor source (downloaded here: https://github.com/bjorn/tiled) to open in Qt Creator on Windows7 SP1 64-bit. The problem I have is that after attempting to open the root project (by either double clicking the .pro file or doing a File->Open in the App itself) Qt Creator stops responding and just hangs. I have left it as long as 6 minutes with no response.
I did some experimenting and found that the problem seems to be related to the src/src.pro file referencing the src/tiled/tiled.pro file.
For reference I have inlined the src/src.pro contents:
TEMPLATE = subdirs
CONFIG += ordered
SUBDIRS = libtiled tiled plugins
I can load src/tiled/tiled.pro alone perfectly fine, with no noticeable delay.
But loading src/src.pro alone has the same problem as tiled.pro, the application hangs indefinitely and stops responding.
As an experiment, I tried removing "tiled" from the SUBDIRS list in src.pro. The problem went away, but of course, the tiled project was not loaded.
I also tried removing everything from SUBDIRS except tiled, and the problem remained.
Has anyone else run into this or a similar issue and/or found a solution?
I have started a similar thread on the Tiled mailing list: https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgroups=#!topic/mapeditor/QvnGKVT95x8
