The Qt Resource System compile error

  • Hello all,
    I have a problem when compile rcc file, which contains a unicode file name like this (images.qrc):
    <!DOCTYPE RCC><RCC version="1.0">
    <qresource prefix="/rcc_images">
    <file>Alêch xang dri.jpg</file>

    when i run compile command:
    C:\Qt\4.8.1\bin\rcc.exe -binary images.qrc -o images.rcc
    it says that:
    "RCC: Error in 'images.qrc': Cannot find file 'Al�ch xang dri.jpg'"

    Any one knows this error? How to compile with unicode file name in qrc file?

    Please help!
    Thank you.

  • Try to change the image name removing the spaces of image name. Take out special characters too.


  • Thank you for your solution, guidupas. Of course, it works. My problem is that I have a lot of image files named as unicode like I mentioned above, and I don't want to change all of them to ansi characters. Is there QT a solution for RCC to compile Unicode file name?

    I think that if that really does not work, it might be a good idea to file a bug report. UTF-8 is a standard, used by Qt and others everywhere, and UTF filenames should work.

  • It really doesn't work, the file name is UTF-8. I haven't tested on the latest RCC version. Any one know whether the latest RCC version work with UTF filenames?
