Cannot set Valgrind's Kit
My Setup is:
QTCreator: 3.1.0 openSource
QT 4.8.5 recompiled with VS 2005 Professional (Windows 2000 is among the possible targets)
Windows 7 Pro x64 Enterprise
I can compile and debug but I cannot set the Valgrind Kit because the Options -> Build & Run -> QT Version has a red !.
From the details the ABI and mkspec do not point the the same VS version:
How can I fix it ? I would really like to do some profiling :-)
Hi and welcome to devnet,
AFAIK, Valgrind has not yet a port for Windows, you'd need to use Linux in order to use it
That is too bad ... As my application uses the Win32 API, I won't be able to set my development environment on Linux.
I guess I will have to look for another profiling solution.
Depending on what you want to profile, you can e.g. #ifdef the Win32 API calls and add some code to simulate the results on other platforms so you can check at least the cross-platform part with Valgrind.
Sure, that could work but not this time :-/
I found that "Very Sleepy":http://www.codersnotes.com/sleepy does the profiling I need.
Thanks for the follow up.
You're welcome and thanks for sharing this interesting finding of yours.
Happy coding !
