Issue with QSqlDatabase::addDatabase(“QODBC”) Qt 4.8.4



  • Im trying to connect to a remote SQL Server database. When trying to add "QODBC" as my QSqlDatabase, I get the following error on the runtime:

    My Code snippet:

    @QStringList drivers = QSqlDatabase::drivers();
    qDebug()<<"drivers list: "<<drivers;
    QSqlDatabase db = QSqlDatabase::addDatabase("QODBC");@

    Error/Console output:
    @drivers list: ("QODBC3", "QODBC")
    Cannot mix incompatible Qt library (version 0x40804) with this library (version 0x40803)@

    As you can see the output of my drivers list shows that I have the drivers available. The .pro file has "QT += sql", I have followed the instructions on QT support blog to build the odbc drivers and added them to my application folder as "sqldrivers" sub folder. I can't seem to find how do I solve the Version Incompatibility error. Any help in resolving this issue will be appreciated, thanks.



  • Do you have on your system another version of Qt?



  • No there is only one installation & that is 4.8.4.



  • Solved it: looks like the QtCore & QtGui dll's in the application folder was not the same version as of the Qsqlodbc.dll, added the same version dll's and it worked.
