Cmake looking for inexistent .lib files (mingw64 build)

  • Hi!

    I'm trying to build my first test project using qt5 (built from source using mingw64, both a static and a shared library build) and cmake (version 2.8.12).
    Build of the project fails with that message:

    @CMake Error at H:/Works/Cpp/UsvX/3party/qt-release-5.3.0/lib/cmake/Qt5Gui/Qt5GuiConfig.cmake:15 (message):
    The imported target "Qt5::Gui" references the file


    but this file does not exist. Possible reasons include:

    • The file was deleted, renamed, or moved to another location.

    • An install or uninstall procedure did not complete successfully.

    • The installation package was faulty and contained


    but not all the files it references.

    Call Stack (most recent call first):

    525/src/CMakeLists.txt:9 (find_package)@

    The missing file (qdds.lib) has not even been built on my setup, I did that search in both my build directories:

    @find ./ -name *.lib@

    Instead I have found a libqdds.a and a qddsd.dll.

    Maybe the .lib files are only built with VisualStudio?

    Anybody know how that is supposed to be fixed?



  • I have the exact same issue. Did you find a solution?
