VS Compiler and Qt Creator
pars99 last edited by
I'm fairly new at this and am encountering a problem. I've been using Visual Studio Express and Visual Studio Professional (trial) but I don't know how to link their compiler(s) to Qt Creator. I've programmed in C++ before, it being my main language, I only had some trouble setting up Qt.
@:-1: error: Qt Creator needs a compiler set up to build. Configure a compiler in the kit options.@
[EDIT]: Thank you, qzox, for the edited title of this thread.

Welcome to devnet.
First of all you need change title of thread, for example:
"Set compiler for QtCreator " or "VS compiler and QtCreator" or other more relevant to question title.
And about your question. What version of Qt you have install?
Take a look to this "doc":http://doc.qt.digia.com/qtcreator-2.1/creator-project-qmake.html

pars99, you need to perform two steps:
"Set up your compiler":http://qt-project.org/doc/qtcreator-2.8/creator-tool-chains.html, and then
"Set up your kit":http://qt-project.org/doc/qtcreator-2.8/creator-targets.html

bq. Yes, this is important. What package did you download?
I downloaded Qt version 5.1, MinGW (32-bit). Though I did recently download VS Studio Express 2012 and VS Studio Professional (TRIAL)...

Okay, thank you. I will try to make my post titles more relevant next time. I have visited a number of forums and have realized that people won't usually view my post and/or answer it when I post the specifics. That's why I titled it so broadly.

Make sure you asked the installer to install MinGW too.
By the way, VS Express and VS professional use the same compiler -- the difference between them is that Professional provides a more powerful IDE.
