CL not recognized



  • This is my first time I have installed QT creator. Then I installed MSVC 2010, and the compiler(s) appeared in QTCreator. I have also added CL.exe to my path, but when I ran my first application, I received the following error:
    @'cl' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
    operable program or batch file.
    jom: C:\Users\Brian\QTProjects\ImagineInventory-build-Desktop_Qt_5_0_0_MSVC2010_32bit_SDK-Debug\Makefile.Debug [debug\main.obj] Error 1

    How should I fix this?

    You should not need to add anything to your PATH, creator should do that for you.

    MSVC 2010 is detected in a lot of different flavors and a coworker recently found that not all of those are installed in all circumstances, so we sometimes show MSVC flavors that are not actually there (fixed in master;-). So try switching to a different flavor of the compiler. Does that fix the issue?

    When would it do that?

    What do you mean by a different flavor?



  • I had the same problems a few days ago and I solved it executing vcvarsall.bat before (I was using nmake) it's suposed to add the variable to the path.
    I hope it can help you.
    Regards.



  • I tried that:
    @C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\VC> vcvarsall.bat
    ERROR: Cannot determine the location of the VS Common Tools folder.
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\VC>@

    [My operating system is Windows 7 64bit. Besides Qt and VSC++, I also have RAD Studio XE3 installed (C++, Delphi, HTML5Builder, and Prism).]



  • It's a problem with VS Common Tools.
    I've found this thread, hope you find something useful.

  • I read the first forum, and there was a link to another forum. I couldn't make heads or tails of the second; the first was helpful, but the suggestion that the environmental variable was not set was not true for my machine.



  • are you using msvc2010 express ?

    Yes I am.



  • See the workaround for msvc2010 express 64 bit here http://qt-project.org/wiki/Qt500Beta2KnownIssues



  • When installing the SDK I get an error, and it just says to check the log.



  • well .. this is a windows/msvc problem rather than a Qt problem

    I think that this worked (I had uninstall MSVC++ first then reinstall after the SDK installed). However, now when I compile most example programs, I get the error:
    @error: LNK1104: cannot open file 'gdi32.lib'@
