Installing Qt - need to add anything to the PATH environment variable?



  • When installing Qt i picked this option:

    bq. Qt 5.1.0 for Windows 64-bit (VS 2012, 525 MB) (Info)

    Does libraries and everything comes with this install or do I need to install anything else separately?

    After installing, do I need to add anything to the PATH environment variable? As for now I only have this (in the PATH) that's seems to have anything to do with Qt:

    @.../QTSystem/...@

    • Using the Qt Creator IDE is the easiest
    • You can also use Visual Studio (Professional and above) with the Visual Studio Add-In (downloaded "separately":http://qt-project.org/downloads )
    • Using Visual Studio Express is difficult

    That's Apple QuickTime, not Qt.
