Qt Creator - "Build Adapter for current Qt"

  • Hello again,

    I was trying to design a QML-File in Qt Creator on my Mac.
    Unfortunately, every time I try do enter the Design-Tab, a dialog opens, telling me Qt Creator has to build an Adapter for the current Qt.
    I knew this from my Windows Installation but it took only a few minutes there and the progressbar was actually moving.

    But now in the Mac version, it does NOTHING. The progressbar stays at the same value for hours (didn't want to wait even longer). Also, in the Task Manager, Qt Creator doesn't seem to be doing anything at all.
    I searched for this issue on Google but it doesn't seem like beeing a common issue. Maybe someone here knows what this is and how to solve it :)

    I'm using Qt-Version 5.3.1 and Qt-Creator-Version 3.1.81. Both 64-Bit built with clang.


    Thanks for any help...

    Since you are using bleeding edge versions built yourself, you should rather ask on the qt-creator mailing list. You'll find there Qt Creator's developers/maintainers (this forum is more user oriented)

  • Ok thanks, I'll try it there :)

  • Please create a bug report (

  • I got the same issue, any update about this ???
