Unable to import QT Project into Visual Studio 2008/2010

  • I installed the SDK for QT for Visual studios. I installed the plugin. I created a simple project in QT Creator with just a dialog.

    I then try and import the project into visual studios and get this issue:

    @--- (Import): Generating new project of test.pro file
    --- (qmake) : Using: \bin\qmake
    --- (qmake) : Working Directory: C:\test\test
    --- (qmake) : Arguments: -tp vc "test.pro" -o "test.vcxproj" QMAKE_INCDIR_QT=$(QTDIR)\include QMAKE_LIBDIR_QT= QMAKE_LIBDIR=$(QTDIR)\lib QMAKE_UIC=$(QTDIR)\bin\uic.exe QMAKE_MOC=$(QTDIR)\bin\moc.exe QMAKE_RCC=$(QTDIR)\bin\rcc.exe QMAKE_QMAKE=$(QTDIR)\bin\qmake.exe

    The system cannot find the file specified@

    I am importing it via the QT Menu > Open QT Project. in Qt Options the QT path is configured and such without any issues as far as I can tell.

  • Hello.

    You make reference to the SDK so from that can we assume you are referring to the 4.7.2 sources or a similar version? And assuming you are using sources you have actually built the Qt environment from these sources?



  • Correct, sorry I wasn't more clear on that. I am using 4.7.2 I downloaded the libraries specifically for visual studios. In the Qt options it has it selected there. I put in that ENV path variable. I configured the lookup locations for the libs, includes etc...

    I can open the visual studios command prompt and just run QMake just to make sure that actually runs. I haven't tried actually manually doing this yet though and just hardcoding the $(QTDIR) parameters. WHen you choose open a project from the QT menu that is what that output I posted is from (in the output window)

  • Maybe I am pointing out the obvious but have you logged out (rebooted even) after setting your QTDIR env parameter? Also it may not do any harm to modify your paths to have a single \ even better is to change them for /.

    For what it's worth.
