Remove qt version from qtcreator

  • Hi,
    I have installed qt5.0 beta for ubuntu 12.04 but removed it again (via the maintainance tool).
    Qtcreator (2.6) still lists it as an availalbe auto-detected qt-version (options->build&run->Qt Versions) but marks it as "qmake does not exist". I can't see any possibility to remove this version ("remove" button is inactive).

    How can I go on to get rid of it?

  • I encountered the same thing with Qt 5.0 Beta and Qt 5.0.0 on windows. I am not really sure how it happened but it (Qt 5.0 Beta) was removed when I also removed the Qt 5.0.0.
    I "think" it is a problem with the installer unable to delete Qt 5.0 Beta in the PATH.

    The Qt 5 beta had a bug where it did not properly remove the Qt version on deinstallation.

    Creator assumes that the SDK knows what it does and will do the right thing... the only way to get rid of this Qt version again is to edit the qtversions.xml file in $QT_CREATOR_INSTALL_DIR/share/qtcreator/QtProject/qtcreator. Sorry for that hickup.
