Environment variables?

  • I'm not sure exactly which environment variables I need to add (or if my problem is something else). I installed QT Creator 5 today for the first time. When I try to build I always get an error (Error while building/deploying project (kit: Desktop Qt 5.3 MSVC2012 OpenGL 32bit).

    If I click on design I get the error QML Emulation Layer (QML Puppet) Building was Unsuccessful or sometimes I get that it is doing something for the first time on this install and gets stuck at exactly 5% each time and QT becomes unresponsive (fairly sure it won't recover as have left it around 15 minutes and the task manager suggests QT is not doing anything). I installed QT 5.3 and accepted the default settings.

    I'm using Windows 8.1 64 bit with Visual Studio 2013 Express installed. Also installed MinGW with QT. I've tried running as Administrator.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    You can't use Qt built for MSVC2012 with MSVC2013. Microsoft compilers are not compatible one with the other. You have to match the package and compilers.

  • Thanks for your reply. I'm installing 2012 Express now.

    You can also install Qt for MSVC2013
