Qt 5.3.1 for Windows 64-bit + MinGW

  • Hi,

    I was looking for the latest Qt installer for Windows (64-bit) but built with the MinGW compiler. Currently, the only option for 64-bit comes with Visual Studio: Qt 5.3.1 for Windows 64-bit (VS 2013, OpenGL, 571 MB)

    I know there is a way to create the Qt installer by myself, in fact, I read the How-To but I feel I don't have the enough skills to build a reliable package.

    So, my question is: there will be an official Qt installer for Windows 64-bit with MinGW at some point in the future?


  • To get an official statement you would have to ask that the actual developers, which you might easier find on the mailing list or the IRC channels.
    From what I gathered there's little hope for that (for now) because they often hint on how much burden it is to provide all the Windows installers as it is, and adding another official (or Tier 1 as they call it) platform just doesn't make much sense right now. Things will undoubtedly change with time as we move closer and closer to more universal adoption of 64 bits but for now it is what it is.

    There are unofficial builds though of really high quality. One of them I used successfully in the past is . It has a variety of MSVC and MinGW builds that fill up the gaps in the official distribution range.

  • have you tried the online installer? usually is offering you the possibility at the end to do an upgrade... unfortunately I'm using linux...

    @arsinte_andrei the online installer offers the same set of packages that you can find as offline installers

  • yes you are right. I did not clearly understood the question. @chrisaverage is right in his answer.

  • Build Qt from Scratch without WebKit:

    download and install Perl
    download and install Python

    create C:\Qt\QtSDK-5.3.1\qtbase.gitignore with a texteditor
    copy from C:\mingw-w64\mingw64\bin:

    • libstdc++-6.dll
    • libgcc_s_seh-1.dll or this wath your MinGW use (sjlj)
    • libwinpthread-1.dll or this wath your MinGW use (win32)
    • C:\Qt\QtSDK-5.3.1\qtbase\bin
      open CMD and do:
      @cd C:\Qt\QtSDK-5.3.1
      configure.bat -developer-build -no-icu -opensource -nomake examples -nomake tests -opengl desktop -confirm-license
      mingw32-make -j6@

    this will build Qt without WebKit
