Installation: Qt Creator needs a compiler set up to build
I have just installed Qt 5.1.1 and tried to run the "Application Example".
It didn't work, but this error appeared: "Qt Creator needs a compiler set up to build. Configure a compiler in the kit options."
I googled a while and tried to install the MinGW compiler.
The same error still occurs...
Do You have an idea whats wrong with my installation?
PS: I'm sorry for my bad english, I am German ;)
Hi and welcome to devnet,
If I saw things correctly you have downloaded a MSVC version of Qt, this requires Visual Studio to be installed. Since you are interested in MinGW, you should uninstall both Qt and MinGW (yes both, so the system's clean) and download the MinGW Qt installer.
You'll have everything you need with it.

You have installed MSVC2012 version of Qt and you try to use it with MinGW.
You need to use MSVC2012 instead of MinGW or use the MinGW version of Qt.
Seems like you already have MSVC2010 (but now MinGW too :) ). So you can download either Qt - MSVC2010 / Qt - MinGW or download "something" (maybe Visual Express 2012 dunno...) to use MSVC2012.
Hi an thanks for the answer
Can you give me the link of the MinGW Qt installer please? Just that I don't download the wrong file.
Here you go: "mingw installer":http://download.qt-project.org/official_releases/qt/5.1/5.1.1/qt-windows-opensource-5.1.1-mingw48_opengl-x86-offline.exe
Worked perfectly, thank you so much!!
Your welcome !
Since it's working now, please update the thread's title prepending [solved] so other forum users may know a solution has been found :)
