[SOLVED] One specific project is set to use another (Not installed) compiler.
@Qt Creator needs a compiler set up to build. Configure a compiler in the kit options.@
@02:10:45: Configuration is faulty. Check the Issues view for details.
Error while building/deploying project Gui14 (kit: Desktop Qt 5.2.0 MSVC2010 32bit)
When executing step 'Make'
02:10:45: Elapsed time: 00:00.@
I've not manually set MSVC2010 as the compiler to the best of my knowledge, and every other project builds fine. I don't currently have Visual Studio installed. (I usually have it for working with C# in Unity3D, but I'm trying the new version of MonoDevelop instead for now)
How did this project (Which has successfully built before) suddenly get set to a different compiler, and how can I fix it?
Running Windows 8.1, and following "this video":https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TpkiVlOS3o4 after successfully following all the previous tutorials in that playlist in the last few hours.
Please ask if you need any further information.
As expected I followed the tutorial again in a new project, and encountered no errors. But the old one still screws up.
How do I make sure this doesn't happen again on something more serious, or undo it if it does occur?
Now two days later I've finally realized that it was staring me in the face. I missed it for two reasons: because I'm a text guy not an icon guy, and because I didn't connect the word "kit" to the word "compiler".
To anyone else having this issue, the left-hand bar at the bottom has build, run and debug buttons, and above those there is a button to select the kit used. This allows quickly switching between kits. (compiler targets) This can also be accessed through Build > Open Build and Run Kit Selector
