Linker problem with Qt 5.0.2 when compiling with VS 2010 64bit

  • Hi,
    I'm new to Qt 5.0.2 and I don't know if this question is simple, but I don't know how to solve it.

    I downloaded the source code to compile it using Visual Studio 2010 in 64bit. After compiling it successfully, I decided to make a test in QtCreator.

    I made a simple console app, and since I have both libraries (32bit AND 64bit) in separate directories, I made this example using a QtCreator's kit that points to a 32bit environment, and no problems running and compiling it. But when I change it to the Kit with 64bit toolchain, I got the following linker error:

    :-1: warning: LNK4044: unrecognized option '/Qt/Qt5.0.2/5.0.2/msvc2010_x64/lib\Qt5Cored.lib'; ignored

    Then I take a look into the file Makefile.debug and found this line:

    LIBS = /LIBPATH:/Qt/Qt5.0.2/5.0.2/msvc2010_x64/lib /Qt/Qt5.0.2/5.0.2/msvc2010_x64/lib\Qt5Cored.lib

    It's using the slash to separate directories as is used in Unix-like systems, but in Windows it should use the backslash () to do the same.

    Manually editting the file and changing that line to:

    LIBS = /LIBPATH:\Qt\Qt5.0.2\5.0.2\msvc2010_x64\lib \Qt\Qt5.0.2\5.0.2\msvc2010_x64\lib\Qt5Cored.lib

    Makes the program builds and runs correctly. So, my question is: how can I indicate QtCreator that it must use the backslash () instead the slash (/) for the directories in the Library paths?

    Thanks in advance,
