Problem assigning MS Visual Studio Complier to Qt 5.0

  • I’m running ‘Windows 7 Service Pack 1’ with ‘MS Visual Studio Professional 2012’ and I’m simply attempting to build and run and example program supplied with Qt 5.0 and associated Qt Creator. Unfortunately I have been having some problems. I get the following error:

    ‘Qt creator needs a complier set up to build. Configure a compiler in the kit options’

    In Tools->Options->Build & Run->Kits the ‘Desktop Qt 5.0.0 MSVC2010 32bit (SDK) (default)’ is shown as auto-detected, however when I click on it and the details appear, there is no complier listed for it. I then click on ‘manage’ (for the compiler) and it takes me to the Tools->Options-> Build & Run->Compilers tab. On the compilers tab I have six ‘MS Visual C++ compiler 11.0’s listed as auto-detected. I have tried selecting a compiler and selecting ‘apply’ and it doesn’t assign a compiler to the Qt kit.

    I have tried installing MinGW and manually adding it to the list of compilers. I still can’t seem to assign it to the Qt Kit. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling everything in different orders multiple times and I still am not having any luck. I am obviously missing something or doing something wrong. I would appreciate any suggestions.

    MSVC2012 is not compatible with MSVC2010. You will need to either build Qt with MSVC2012 or install a MSVC2010.

    Mingw is also incompatible with MSVC (all of them;-).

  • Thank you very much. I'm not sure how, but I'll try and figure out how to build Qt with MSVC12.
