Convert Visual Studio project into Qt



  • Hi!

    I'm using a code provided by National Instrument to do data acquisition. Since I can't pay for the Labview licence, I used to run the code under the Codeblocks IDE instead.

    The code provided is a Visual Studio project (.psd). When you try to open it on Codeblocks, it first open a window and go trought a few steps to convert the project from Visual Studio to Codeblocks (.cbp). Once it's done, you can run the code without any problem.

    The program I'm working on do what I want it to do, only now I would like to make an interface to simplify it's use. For this, I plan to move to Qt. That's where the trouble starts: Qt does not automatically convert the Visual Studio project (.dsp) into Qt project (.pro). An unconverted code doesn't work and simply copy/paste the code in a .pro file doesn't work either.

    Does anyone knows how to convert a Visual Studio project into a Qt project?

    Their is only one project to convert so a manual method would be enough.

    Thanks for the help!

    Do you have a non-Express version of Visual Studio? If so, I believe you can use the "Visual Studio Add-In":http://blog.qt.digia.com/blog/2013/07/03/visual-studio-add-in-1-2-2-released/ to export a project into .pro

  • Hi, you can run

    @
    qmake -project
    @

    to generate a .pro file. Then you can edit this .pro file to make it works as excepted.

    No, I don't use Visual Studio, again for monetary reasons.

    I hope not because my project would be screwed... But it's not Measurement Studio, it's a header file, not an actual library. Never the less, I'll verify to be sure, thanks.
