LNK1104: cannot open file
I am currently trying to build mysql drivers using QT Creator 3.0.1 with MSVC 11. I have copied the contents MySQL Connector 6.1.3 to C:\MySQL and have edited the mysql.pro file located in ..\qtbase\src\plugins\sqldrivers\mysql with the following:
LIBS += C:\MySQL\lib\libmysql.lib
INCLUDEPATH += C:\MySQL\includes
When trying to build the file, I get the error: LNK1104: cannot open file 'libmysql.lib'. I have tried with the file in the working directory and also located in the C:\MySQL folder with no change. There are no spaces in the .lib path so I'm not sure what else would be causing the error.
Try change "" with "/".
Also you can try library adding wizard (right click on project tree -> Add library)
I tried both with adding forward slashes instead and trying the wizard but get the same error message.
Hi and welcome to devnet,
What do you get if you use something like
LIBS += -LC:/MySQL/lib
