[Solved] Qt 4.8, MSVC2010, nmake, don't know how to make 'sub-src'
I try to compile Qt 4.8.5 on a Windows 7 machine, with VS 2010 SP1, Windows SDK 7.1. I need to build in x64 mode.
Is this wiki page still accurate? http://qt-project.org/wiki/Building_Qt_Desktop_for_Windows_with_MSVC
got the Qt sources and installes OpenSSL binaries
set up QTDIR, OPENSSL, PATH, QMAKESPEC (win32-msvc2010)
added -MP2 option as stated on wiki page
tried both configure listed below
nmake sub-src fails with "don't know how to make 'sub-src'"
What am I missing? Additionnally, am I sure it will perform a x64 build?
I guess I don't need phonon.
Thank you for any information.

Just run nmake, no need for sub-src. If you really want to skip building tools, you can also run this:
bin\qmake projects.pro QT_BUILD_PARTS="libs"
That wiki page looks overly complicated, to be honest. Building Qt is really much easier than that ;)
Thanks, nmake alone works better. I intended to build libs then tools anyways.
I agree, could anyone edit the wiki page? :-)
But I'm missing something in my PATH or some other setting for headers to be found...
@c:\qt\qt4.8.5\src\corelib\codecs\qisciicodec_p.h(56) : fatal error C1083: Cannot
open include file: 'QtCore/qtextcodec.h': No such file or directory@
I had a look at Qt5 corresponding page:
I'm currently searching in the forum about this include problem.
Doh, even there they put unneeded calls :( You don't need to set any environment variables to be able to build Qt: configure does all this automatically. But it does look much better :)
I think the best description of the build process is the page for "building from git":http://qt-project.org/wiki/Building_Qt_5_from_Git. But none of that is necessary for you, as you are compiling Qt 4.
A standard unpack/configure/nmake should do everything without hiccups. I have never seen the error you've got, so sadly I can't help here.
Solved. The wiki page really has unaccurate instructions now.
And I had not clean sources. So I unpacked sources again, ran only
@configure -mp -opensource -nomake demos -nomake examples -platform win32-msvc2010@ then
and just have to wait for compilation end :-) I see some warning about data types conversions but it seems it runs smootly.
