[SOLVED] Reinstalled an now facing compiler issue.
I have had an issue with my Qt install which meant i needed to uninstall and reinstall my version of Qt. Unfortunately when I reinstalled it now gives me the error "Qt Creator needs a commpiler set up to build. Configure a compiler in the kit options."
This was working before the reinstall and I thought I'd done it all right.
Anyone spot something I've missed?
Do you have the corresponding Visual Studio installed ? The android NDK/SDK ? Set up Qt Creator's android environment ?
I have Visual Studio Express 2010 installed (C++ version) installed. Although I did uninstall the trial of 2012 I had when I did a reinstall of Qt. I will try reinstating it.
As far as Android side, I'm not aiming on building android applications, only windows based ones.
Then you have to install the VS2010 package. You can't mix different Visual Studio / Qt packages. Microsoft compilers are not compatible between versions
Ah apologies. I thought that I had matched the packages correctly. I saw in compiler section is had out detected MSVC2010 in compilers and matched what i had in Qt Versions and what I had installed in terms of Visual Studio.
I'm assuming the package you mean is - "This one here":http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=5555
I'll download it again and see if maybe i did something wrong when I first installed it.

[/quote]No, that's the redistributable package. You need the compilers.
However, MSVC 2010 is very old. Why not just download MSVC 2013?
That's what i did in the end and it worked like a treat.
I swapped from 2013 because of some installation issues i was having with it, however swapping out solved one issue and created another one. I just sucked it and sorted out the original issue I was having.
Nice you could sort it out.
Since you have a working setup now, please update the thread title prepending [solved] so other forum users may know a solution has been found :)
