Qt 5.1.1 Mac OS X 10.8.5 ERROR: Could not resolve platform name for SDK 'macosx'

  • I have recently installed Qt 5.1.1 for mac from the online installer!! I cannot build any project and the "play" button is disabled.

    When I hover the "play" button it says .pro file could not be parsed!!!!!!!

    The output from the build process is the following....
