    Hi Phil,

    I was just myself facing this problem as I was changing from VS2012 to VS2013, but sadly your link does not work as the connection times out.
    Is this a DynHost that is maybe not always available?

    Thanks,
    Apollo



  • Hi Apollo,

    Im just on rebuilding the machine that I use as the web host, if you give me about 30 mins ill have it all back online again.



  • Hi Phil,

    thank you for your efforts but sadly I still cannot connect to the server. Can I help or I can host your package as well if you have problems with your server.

    Thanks in advance,
    Apollo



  • Apollo, Sorry Iv had one of those days were iv not been able to sit for 5 mins without something coming up :)

    what iv done is packed it into an installer, the reasons being are:
    It now registers the dll so you can use the new project wizards without it causing an error
    When the official version is released its easy to remove
    No need to edit a reg file anymore

    and yes of course you can mirror if you wish :)

    [Edit]
    Just a positive note :)
    Because I only use a static Qt libs, unlike the official version, I did not have to include the typical dll;s you normally do with a Qt application, so instead of a typical 40+meg install its now to 14meg - if only it was the days when space was such an issue xD

    also the first zip I posted is still up so if you don't want an installer then you can use that, just remember to reg that dll



  • Does anyone have this installer ? I tried patching the 1.2.2 installer to work but of course it didn't...



  • reupload plese



  • Please reupload, I need this.
    I would also mirror it for you since you seem to be having constant difficulties.



  • You don`t need installer to work with addin in Visual Studio 2013.
    Just do next steps:

    1. Copy contents of "C:\Program Files (x86)\Digia\Qt5VSAddin\11.0" folder to
      newly created "C:\Program Files (x86)\Digia\Qt5VSAddin\12.0".
    2. Run VS2013, goto menu Tools->Options->Environment->Addin Security,
      add "C:\Program Files (x86)\Digia\Qt5VSAddin\12.0" folder to the list.
    3. Restart VS2013.

    And voila, you have QtVSAddin working in VS 2013 :).

    In other words, that makes it useless.

    If I may make a suggestion to whoever maintains this plugin... I have some gripes I need to vent. But first, no, I cannot use Qt creator so please don't suggest it.

    a) The mechanism by which the plugin stores metadata on which files to MOC is black magic. Right now I can't figure out how the plugin "remembers" which files to moc. It makes it hard to make changes to this by hand. It requires manual, annoying steps in point d) below.

    b) Is it possible for us mere mortals to understand how the plugin goes from knowing which files to process, to actually constructing the command-line it seems to add to the custom build? More black magic by the plugin? It seems to either works in full, or fails and you're SOL with no ability to troubleshoot.

    c) The sources to the plugin are useless. Why? Because even though we can compile this abomination, from there, it isn't clear how to produce the final installer. And for anyone that knows anything about this plugin, the job done by the installer is just as important as the job done by the plugin. Case in point -- this thread, where merely adding the plugin to VS is useless.

    d) Too often I end up in broken situations, where I have to remove Q_OBJECT from all my files, or, remove all my files and re-add to the project. I have hundreds of files across many folders, so this process is manual and painful and while doing this I send curses to some unknown soul out there every time I need to do it (too often).

    Ok I'm done, thanks.

    Hi enry,

    Have you tried wiping your build tree and re-running qmake? Qt "remembers" which files need re-moc-cing/rebuilding using Makefiles. qmake generates these Makefiles.

    If you want to reach the maintainer of the VS Add-In, try subscribing to and then posting the "Interest mailing list":http://lists.qt-project.org/mailman/listinfo/interest. That's where many Qt engineers are.



  • Unfortunately this website doesn't seem to exist right now:
    http://www.downforeveryoneorjustme.com/http://www.minioncoding.com
    Can anyone who downloaded the file post it somewhere more stable?

    I was wondering if the current installer is going to work for Visual Studio 2013, because I found this article that suggested that add-ins had been deprecated:
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/5abkeks7.aspx

    What I'm really interested to see is if the new VSPackage will install on Visual Studio 2013 Express...



  • Hi all!
    Here is "QTVS2013Addin.zip":https://mega.co.nz/#!nMRDWQzR!W2lCQ3-tuReacwEUbv0i2yB3acVqYAVbnd6xl21Ey7o installer originally created by StaticPhilly uploaded to mega file share.
    Installed and seems worked well in VS2013 Ultimate.



  • Thanks a lot! Works well!



  • Hi all,

    I am new to Visual Studio an QT so I hope I am in the right place to ask this question. Here is the problem.

    Like I said I am new to Visual Studio and so I am using the 2013 Professional version. What I need to do is get an old project that was built in VS2010 that uses QT to build in VS2013. I was able to get QT 5.2 to build using VS2013 and then used the QT VS 2013 Addin.exe that this forum has. However I still can not get the old project to build. I get an "IntelliSense: cannot open source file" error among similar errors at all QT references.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Qt Projects templates and adding .h and .ui files to project works fine.
    But no Qt class templates :( (menu Project->Add class).
    Anyway it`s better than nothing. Thank you.



  • Unfortunately doesn't work for me. 'Qt' menu does not appear in VS menubar. :(





  • Thank you so much! Is this the official add-in release for VS2013? The wiki still states support for up to 2012 only.

  • I got the official QT VS2013 add-in 1.2.3.
    It installs fine but when i want to add my QT version and it just gives "Illegal characters in path" even if the path is just C:\qt...



  • Has anyone else seen the issue that jogra has. I too downloaded the QT5 Visual Studio Add-in 1.2.3 and when i tried to add my QT version I got the "illegal characters in path" notice. Any advice on this?

  • Sorry for the double post, but as it turns out, that issue was solved by selecting the correct qt library (for VS2013 it was the msvc2013_64 folder inside of QT\5.3)
