QTCreator can't work with VC compiler
Windows 7, x64, AMD.
installed Windows SDK for this processer and OS version.
QtCreator 5.2.0 with MSVC2012 x86 64
But Kit settings shows that autodetected kit can't be used (red error icon )
and compiler field in the kit is empty .
I see that Compilers page in the settings shows me three available compilers x86, amd64, IA64
please advise what is incorrect?
Hi and welcome to devnet,
Since you installed the MSCV2012 version of Qt you must install Visual Studio 2012 in order to use it
so do I understand you right - I can use free tools Qt Creator and Windows SDK libs/compiler for 32bit architecure only?
for 64 - I have to have full functional Visual Studio 2012 version?
32-bit and 64-bit are not relevant. You can use the free version for both of them.
[quote author="amigo421" date="1388181023"]I see that Compilers page in the settings shows me three available compilers x86, amd64, IA64[/quote]"x86, amd64, IA64" only describe the CPU/OS type. What is the version number of your compiler?
If you installed the Windows SDK 7, then you have the Visual Studio 2010 compiler. You need to install the Windows SDK 8, or Visual Studio 2012 Express, to get the correct compiler version.
currently have Win 8.1 OS
after that installed WinSDK 8.1, but QtCreator did n't see the compiler
then I've isntalled VC++ Express, QtCreator does see now the compiler but
"Kits": Qt 5.2.0 MSVC2012 32bit can't recognize this compiler as valid for the building a projects
Could you tell me please exactly what I should to download to make this workable?
Which version of VC++ Express did you install?
Since you got the "MSVC 2012" edition of Qt, then you need to install VC++ Express 2012.
This part confuses people:
VC++ 12.0 is MSVC 2013.
VC++ 11.0 is MSVC 2012.
VC++ 10.0 us MSVC 2010.
Again, you need to install VIsual Studio 2012 Express.
seems the only available for download from MS - VCExpress 2013
if you mean compiler version this is vc(cl.exe) - v18
Please search Google for "Download Microsoft Visual Studio Express 2012". It's still available from Microsoft's website.
EDIT: You're welcome :) Good luck!
let me try to find VC2012 out
looks like a long puzzle :)
downloaded VC2012 , but this is not started because of compatibility issue .
I found only "this":http://edd.stefancamilleri.com/2013/02/13/windows-program-compatibility-mode-is-on-turn-it-off-and-then-try-setup-again-how-to-uninstall-an-app-if-this-happens/
but it doesn't work for me - my setup has turned off all compatibility checkboxes :(
Hmm... issues with installing Visual Studio are out of my league. Try asking at http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums
(One thing I can think of: MSVC 2013 might be interfering with the installation of older versions. Uninstall that, reboot, and see if it makes a difference.)
used iso version instead of web installer
seems it works now and kits are valid
thanks a lot!
