Win 8 - Installing Qt 5.2.1 for Desktop and Android
I want to test the possibilites of Qt in developing for both Desktop and Android systems.
My system is Windows 8 64 bits, with Visual Studio 2012 Ultimate SP4 installed.
Following the instructions given in http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-5/androidgs.html, I've done this:
Downloaded and installed Qt 5.2.1 for Win64 with OpenGL
installed Java Development Kit, c:\Java
added system var AVA_HOME as"C:\Java\jdk1.7.0_51
Installed Android SDK tools in C:\Android
started, and installed 4.4.2 images
Google USB driver installed (phone is Nexus 4)
Downlodaded Android NDK an placed as C:\Android\android-ndk-r9c
Downloaded Apache Ant and placed as C:\Java\apache-ant-1.9.3
Added system Var ANT_HOME como "C:\Java\apache-ant-1.9.3"
Added string to Path Var ";%JAVA_HOME%\bin;%ANT_HOME%\bin"
Downloaded MinGW and installed in C:\MinGW with MINGW Instalallation Manager
All basic setup packages installed
Downloaded Visual Studio Add-in 1.2.2 for Qt5 and installed in C:\Program Files (x86)\Digia\Qt5VSAddin
I've started a project and I see Desktop, but cannot see Android as target. Revisiting the above webpage, I think I must install something like "Qt 5.2.1 for Android (Windows 64-bit)" but I can only find "Qt 5.2.1 for Android (Windows 32-bit, 1.1 GB)" in the download page (http://qt-project.org/downloads).
Am I right? What steps should I follow next?
Thanks in advance!
You need install "this":http://download.qt-project.org/official_releases/qt/5.2/5.2.1/qt-opensource-windows-x86-android-5.2.1.exe package or use "online installer":http://download.qt-project.org/official_releases/online_installers/qt-opensource-windows-x86-1.5.0-2-online.exe .
Man, your link points to the file I stated above: Qt 5.2.1 for Android (Windows 32-bit, 1.1 GB)
As my computer is 64 bits, ¿Shouldn't it be a 64 bits version?
No, 64 bit OSes run 32bit applications without problem. The other way around though is not possible
Thanks, SGaist and Qxoz. I really appreciate your brief but helpful apports. ¿What should be next?
I'm not really sure about the new Sys Vars (paths and so) to apply after installing, and steps. Well, I will post here in order to help other users in same position as me.
