. Configure a compiler in the kit options solved

  • Hello
    I am new to qt. I have installed
    Qt Creator 3.0.0 Based on Qt 5.2.0 (MSVC 2010, 32 bit) Built on Dec 10 2013 at 11:48:34 From revision 70e0f6bbca

    And I get the follwing error.
    :-1: error: Qt Creator needs a compiler set up to build. Configure a compiler in the kit options.

    I don't have any other compiler installed.
    The machine where qt is installed is windows 7 64 bit.
    What is the problem ?

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Qt Creator is not a compiler, it's an IDE. Any installer with MSVC in its name requires the corresponding Visual Studio to be installed (it can't be bundled with Qt's installer, Microsoft is the only way to get it)

    If you don't want to go through the process of installing VS, you can use the MinGW package which comes with everything needed to get started.

  • Thank you it works with the VS 2010 but how do I debug I get the following;
    no debug setup. How do I do this ?

    IIRC, you need to install the Debugging Tools also from Microsoft

  • Thank you I am know able to debug. One strange thing is that the example Camera has the Video part dimmed out. Do you have any idea why ? the declarative-camera example works. I have only tried the examples on windows. I will try them on android 4.3 phone later.

    You're welcome

    No, I don't know and I can't test right now.

    You should rather open a new thread about that problem as it is something different. Also please update this thread title prepending [solved] so other forum users may know a solution has been found :)
