Error creating MySQL drivers for QT5.1(mysql.h no such file)

  • Hi.
    I'm trying create the drivers for MySQL to connect to QT5.1. Below is my set-up process and the error that it picks up, mysql.h no such file.

    Setting up environment for Qt usage...

    C:\Qt51\5.1.0\mingw48_32>set mysql=C:\Program Files (x86)\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.5

    The mysql.h file is located in, C:\Program Files (x86)\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.5\include folder.

    What I'm I doing wrong? Is something missing?
    {I have Win7 64 bit, MySQL Server5.5 (32bit) & QT5.1 with Qt Creator 2.72 (32Bit)}

    Hi and welcome to devnet

    "Here": you have the instruction to build the plugin (although it's for Qt 4.8 the same applies to Qt 5)

    To simplify things, you should rather install MySql in a path without space.

    Hope it helps

  • I’ve worked through the “ How to build the MySQL driver for MinGW users” procedure.
    When I type in reimp -d libmysql.lib I get the error: 'reimp-d' is not recognized as an internal or external command,operable program or batch file.
    I’ve rename MySQL as MySQL55
    I’ve also noticed that I do not have a opt folder in the C:\Program Files (x86)\MySQL\MySQL55\lib folder.

    You need to download reimp yourself

    The MySQL installation folders might have changed a bit. You should only consider the files using their names

  • Hi. Do you know of a source to dowbload reimp. I 've tried many links on google but unsuccessfull in download the full file
