[solved] installing multiple kits on windows

  • Hi,

    I need some help installing multiple kits on a qt-creator windows installation.

    I successfully installed the Windows x64 version of QT and got everything working using the Microsoft compilers. I now would like to add the 32-bit kit to the installation. How do I do that?

    I currently have a single version installed

    I assume that the 32-bit version would need to be added as

    If I try to install the complete Qt for 32-bit windows package I cannot install it into the same directory as the already existing installation, essentially leaving me with 2 completelt independent qt-creator installations. I'm sure that's not the desired solution.
    If I then manually copy the msvc2013_opengl kit into the /Qt/Qt5.3.1/5.3/ directory and manually add the kit to the qt-creator configuration I still get makefiles that are generated with old path information.

    I guess the question is, how can I install additional build kits to a Windows qt installation such that the kits is properly registered and auto-detected by qt?

    Thank you
