Build Static Qt problems
I'm trying to build an executable of my application. All the guides I have tried all have steps that don't work.
Supposedly I'm supposed to build Qt statically, and then statically build my application.
From the Qt page on deployment it says to:
But there is no configure program in Qt, nor nmake.
Is there any up to date guide on how to do this?
"configure" (usually "configure.bat") should be present in the source.
"nmake", on the other hand, should be present in windows with the VS compiler.
PS: (I might be wrong) Download the correct archive w/ windows line endings (usually ".zip" and NOT .tar.gz, etc.)
Also, install a VS compiler, after that use the command prompt specific for that compiler (e.g. for VS2012: start menu -> Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 -> Visual Studio Tools -> [here you'll see different command prompts]
I just redownloaded a fresh install of 5.0.2 and the only "configure" in the whole thing is a PICS rules file.
never mind, it appears theres a download option to get source, and configure is in there.

I have a copy of Qt 5.0.2 "qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.0.2.zip", (just checked it a while ago) and it includes 2 "configure" (one is configure w/o any extension and the other is configure.bat).
Also, every subfolders/modules (QtBase, etc) have the same separate files within.
You might have downloaded the wrong archive or your file got corrupted during the download process. And I never saw any PICS file. Try to recheck it.
Where do you download anyway? I assume it is on the Qt-Project download page, right?
You should build Qt from source. As i understand you download Qt SDK installer.
You can get split source packages from "here":http://download.qt-project.org/official_releases/qt/5.0/5.0.2/submodules/. The source code is also available as a single "zip":http://download.qt-project.org/official_releases/qt/5.0/5.0.2/single/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.0.2.zip (271 MB) ("Info":http://download.qt-project.org/official_releases/qt/5.0/5.0.2/single/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.0.2.zip.mirrorlist) file for Windows users or as "tar.qz":http://download.qt-project.org/official_releases/qt/5.0/5.0.2/single/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.0.2.tar.gz (220 MB) ("Info":http://download.qt-project.org/official_releases/qt/5.0/5.0.2/single/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.0.2.tar.gz.mirrorlist) file for Linux/Mac users. All the installers are available also "here":http://download.qt-project.org/official_releases/qt/5.0/5.0.2/. Or visit the repository at "qt.gitorious.org/qt":http://qt.gitorious.org/qt
