[SOLVED] qmake doesn't work (fresh install Windows 8 N & Qt5.0.2)

  • I've just installed Windows 8 N and Qt5.0.2 (MinGW32) and created a simple GUI app. When I try to build it stops at the qmake step. It outputs this:
    @"MAKEFILE_GENERATOR variable not set as a result of parsing : untitled.pro. Possibly qmake was not able to find files included using "include(..)" - enable qmake debugging to investigate more."@

    Never happened to me. Google won't lead me to an answer. Thanks.

    SOLVED: looks like the installer package got messed up in my USB flash drive. Burnt to a CD and worked like a charm.

  • Hi,

    can you post you pro file?

  • It is generated when you create the basic GUI application from the wizard. Like this one:

    Project created by QtCreator 2013-04-18T13:22:02


    QT += core gui

    greaterThan(QT_MAJOR_VERSION, 4): QT += widgets

    TARGET = untitled
    TEMPLATE = app

    SOURCES += main.cpp

    HEADERS += MainWindow.hpp

    FORMS += MainWindow.ui

    I tried to reinstall Windows and Qt. I will try to download the Qt package another time, just in case.

  • Have you installed also MinGW?

  • Looks like it is something wrong either with my Windows 8 disk or my USB flash drive. I will try to burn the Qt installer into a DVD. I think this thread should be closed. Thanks!

    By the way,
    [quote author="mcosta" date="1366287074"]Have you installed also MinGW?
    Yes, it comes with the Qt package. I've also tried to compile some simple files and it works fine.
