Qt msvc mysql driver, ERROR addExclusiveBuilds() requires at least two arguments

  • I have qt built with msvc, installed the msvs plugin, everything works wonderfully.
    I wanted to open a mysql db connection; this failed with "mysql driver not installed" or something like.
    No problem. The instructions are clear:
    cd QTDIR\src\plugins\sqldrivers\mysql
    qmake "INCLUDEPATH+=C:/MySQL/include" "LIBS+=C:/MYSQL/MySQL Server <version>/lib/opt/libmysql.lib" mysql.pro
    This seemed clear, and I replaced the paths with the locations for my headers and lib.
    However, I get Project ERROR: addExclusiveBuilds() requires at least two arguments.
    I have been unable to locate any posts addressing this sequence of events.
    I would be grateful if anyone could suggest a solution. Thank you.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Are you sure you are using the right qmake ? Since you don't give the full pith you might be using your system Qt 4 qmake rather that your Qt 5

    Hope it helps

  • Good idea that had not occurred to me, thanks!
    Turned out not to be the problem, sadly.
    I've solved it in the short term by simply using the mysql C api directly.
    Thanks again. : )

    I've often had problem with path containing spaces, you could try the same line replacing "MySQL Server <version>" with it's 8.3 version
