Using Qt 4.8.6 with Visual Studio 2010 Express
I can't seem to find a definitive answer to this question.
Is it possible to use Qt version 4.8.6 in the Visual Studio 2010 Express version???
I am on Windows 7, 64-bit
If so can somebody point me in the right direction, please?
Thanks in advance
Yes it is, it's the same setup as for the standard edition. You just can't use Qt's VS Add-In. But that's not really a problem if you use Qt Creator.
Ahhh, that's the rub, I DO want to use the VS Add-in... So you are telling me there is no way to get that to work???
The Express Edition doesn't allow to use plugins
It's a decision by Microsoft to not allow add-ins in Visual Studio Express versions :-(
If you are a student you might get the "Professional version cheaper":http://stackoverflow.com/questions/8953030/where-can-i-get-add-ins-for-visual-studio-express
Ok, I guess I will use Qt Creator...
Thanks for all your help.

FWIW: Using Qt with Visual Studio without the Qt Add-In can work just fine. You only need to set up a few things manually. But it's not a big deal...
Hmmmm, that sounds interesting... Like what?

Well, you'll need to set up custom build rules for the MOC and UIC stuff. And also for the RCC stuff, if your app needs it. But that's it, I suppose.
(You also won't have a fancy wizard to setup new projects and classes)
OK, I'll give that a try...
It's that fancy wizard to setup new projects and classes that I am missing the most from my last contract position (that of course had the professional version)
Thanks for your help again...
