Qt installation folders



  • Hi all,
    I am new with Qt and moreover I start with it in the PC of a workmate, where he has already installed Qt.
    First of all, I would like to know why I can found projects in different folders of the Qt installacion:
    I find Qt under C:\Qt, then I have three folders inside:

    • 2010.5
    • Git
    • Qt5.0.1
      I think the first one is because of a previous installation. I continue in the third one C:\Qt\Qt5.0.1, and I found several files and folders, the most relevant:
      -5.0.1
      -Tools
      Here is where I get confused, since I can found examples and projects by
      -C:\Qt\Qt5.0.1\5.0.1\mingw47_32
      and by
      -C:\Qt\Qt5.0.1\Tools\QtCreator\bin
      Moreover by tools folder I found the path C:\Qt\Qt5.0.1\Tools\MinGW, which provides (I think) the compiler, but if yes, what is C:\Qt\Qt5.0.1\5.0.1\mingw47_32?

    Could anybody explain me what is the difference between examples in Tools\QtCreator\bin and examples in 5.0.1\mingw47_32?
    Should I set anything in QtCreator projects mode in order to compile and run examples in 5.0.1\mingw47_32? I am trying to do so, and QtCreator can not compile them.

    Sorry for my ignorance.



  • Hi

    bq. Here is where I get confused, since I can found examples and projects by
    -C:\Qt\Qt5.0.1\5.0.1\mingw47_32
    and by
    -C:\Qt\Qt5.0.1\Tools\QtCreator\bin

    sure? under -C:\Qt\Qt5.0.1\Tools\QtCreator\bin i can't find examples

    bq. Moreover by tools folder I found the path C:\Qt\Qt5.0.1\Tools\MinGW, which provides (I think) the compiler, but if yes, what is C:\Qt\Qt5.0.1\5.0.1\mingw47_32?

    in C:\Qt\Qt5.0.1\5.0.1\mingw47_32 you find Qt built with MinGW

    bq. Should I set anything in QtCreator projects mode in order to compile and run examples in 5.0.1\mingw47_32? I am trying to do so, and QtCreator can not compile them.

    What kind of error you see on Creator building examples?

    Bye
