[SOLVED] Qt Creator and CMake on Windows
I am trying to move away from Microsoft Visual Studio on Widnows.
I have installed the binaries Qt 5.3.2 for Windows 32-bit (MinGW 4.8.2, OpenGL) directly from http://qt-project.org/downloads and I have a simple CMakeLists.txt
add_executable(Test test.cpp )
It works when I use CMake through the Visual Studio Generator and it also works on Linux.
- I open the CMake Project using QtCreator
- I use CMakeGui to set the variable Qt5Widgets_DIR = "C:\Qt\Qt5.3.2\5.3\mingw482_32\lib\cmake/Qt5Widgets"
- I set Core and GUI accordingly
- Then QtCreator successfully configures and generates its makefiles.
My source code compiles but I get linkage errors
@undefined reference to `_imp___ZN12QApplicationC1ERiPPci'
and a couple similar ones.
It would be very helpful if somebody could point out what I am doing wrong in this simplistic set up.
Trouble is, I can't even see the compiler call in the "4 Compile Output" tab, which is annoying to begin with. NOW: How can I check EXACTLY which libraries are being linked. The makefiles are really hard to read...
Hi and welcome to devnet,
Did you check the "Qt Creator's manual":http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-5/cmake-manual.html for qmake
Hope it helps
Really, nobody any suggestions?
I guess I'm just not gonna use QtCreator, if a simple linker problem is unsolvable.
SOOOO I got it.
I simply deleted that environment variable and now it works.
I don't think this is intended behavior. It should be possible to set all variables in CMake and override whatever is in CMAKE_PREFIX_PATH.
My problem that I don't see what exactly the makefile is doing. SO far I do not like QtCreator.
