[SOLVED] Qt Creator won't start Up



  • Hello,
    I've tried everything, to get my QtCreator working on Windows 7, but it doesn't work. I've stripped down the Path to the neccessary Elements, checked it for douple backslashes and so an, but the Problem is: it doesn't start up.

    I'm using Windows 7 Proffessional, it's activated properly and the Aero Style is deactivated (my computer isn't strong enougth to have great design and play games), but when I start the Qt-Creator, it shows up in the Task Manager, and then it disappears. No Errors nothing.

    Would be great if someone could help me, because it's a little bit odd to change to Linux, only for using the QtCreator and changing back to Windows to test the Compile step.

    welcome to devnet

    Which package did you install?

    BTW: it is Qt. QT stands for Quick Time in this forum.



  • Oh oops, Well I've installed the mingw offline version (which has 666MB xD)
    I've chosen this, because the tools in the VC++ Packages aren't working for me (They doesn't start up neither)

    So, you have installed the SDK which includes Qt 5.1.1 libs, Qt creator 2.8.1 and the MinGW compiler. This explains also the size of the offline installer. On you hard disk it is after installation significantly more.

    You need to check that there is still enough harddisk space available.
    How did the installation go?
    Any error messages?
    How do you start Qt creator?



  • It's a 73GB Partition, I think there should be enougth space left. ( 45GB should be enouth).

    Start -> Alle Programme -> Qt 5.1.1 -> QtCreator, thats the way I start It.

    Oh and there is a Batch file, I've created:

    @
    @echo off
    SET PATH=C:\Windows\system32
    QtCreator.exe
    @

    And the installation works very well, no errors (except I've installed the 64Bit Librarys and tools on a 32Bit System, which should be normal)

    What do you mean with this?

    [edit, sorry, left too much in the quoting, koahnig]



  • If I install the 64Bit tools, qmake 64Bit won't give parsable content, which is needed by the installer. This happens only in the Web Instaler with vc++ 64 Bit checked, so its not important for my Problem.

    You should not mix installations by hand-tuning.
    You can install different Qt lib versions, but you cannot with the SDKs on top of the download page.
    As you might have recognized the MinGW is "only" for 32 bit compiled. However, that is not a problem. It does work on a 64 bit windows system. You do not gain any benefit from adding 64 bit tools. Especially qmake cannot be exchanged between different versions. It has information in the exe about the installation it was shipped with.

    Probably the best is that you reinstall the MinGW SDK again. The optimum would be to bring the system to the status as before of your installation efforts.

    Directly after installation of MinGW SDK, you should be able to start the creator without additional manipulations.

    The 32bit MinGW SDK (tool chain) is completely sufficient for starting with Qt. You can change any time to a 64 bit tool chain later on.

    You have downloaded the offline installer. If you have a permanent Internet connection, it is better to use the online installer.
    Initially I recommend you to install only the MinGW tool chain. You can deselect options you do not need. Lateron, you can install more tool chains (e.g. msvc version with 64 bit) if you really require.



  • I've reinstalled the Qt Framework, and nothing changed. It does'nt startup.



  • Problem Solved,

    I've reinstalled Windows an the Qt SDK. QtCreator doesn't work. Then I've installed the Standalon Creator in the SDK Path, and it works now. It's not a bit tricky but okay.
