Qt Creator needs a compiler to create project..



  • Hello All,
    after reading the doc and searching the net I'm still not able to solve the issue "QT creator needs a compiler to create project...".
    I'm using QT Creator 5.2.1 and I have installed he MinGW compiler in dir c:\compiler\mingw.
    Under the tab "QT Versions" I see "Qt 5.2.1 MSVC2012 OpenGL 64bit c:\ qt\qt5.2.1....\mscv2012_64_opengl\bin\qmake.exe".
    And under the tab "Compiler" I have set the Compiler to "MinGW" with the path c:\compiler\mingw\bin\mingw32-make.exe".
    However These seems to wrong since the compile of my C++ program Ends upo in with the error "Qt Creator needs a compiler to create project...".

    Any help will be appreciated
    Rgds

  • Compare this 2 lines:
    “Qt 5.2.1 MSVC2012 OpenGL 64bit c:\ qt\qt5.2.1.\…\mscv2012_64_opengl\bin\qmake.exe”
    and
    c:\compiler\mingw\bin\mingw32-make.exe”.

    Can you see diferences?
    (Qt 64bit != compiler 32bit) + MSVC2012 != MinGW. For this version of Qt you need MSVC2012 compiler.



  • Thanks - after installing Visual Studio 2012 it works fine
