Error while building/deploying project qbittorrent (kit: Desktop Qt 5.3 MSVC2012 OpenGL 32bit) When executing step "Make"

  • :-1: error: Qt Creator needs a compiler set up to build. Configure a compiler in the kit options.

    Qt Version 5.3.2

    When I start a new project it can build and run perfectly. When I open an existing project I get an error.

    When I hover over a kit it says "the compiler cannot produce code for the qt version"

    Hi, and welcome to the Qt Dev Net!

    Your system only has MSVC 2010 and MSVC 2013. These cannot work with "Qt 5.3 MSVC2012".

    You need to either:

    • Install Visual Studio 2012, OR
    • Use Qt for MSVC 2013 (and uninstall Qt 5.3 MSVC 2012)

    Note that Visual C++ Compiler 12.0 comes from Visual Studio 2013. These are the numbers:

    • Visual Studio 2005 -- Visual C++ 8.0
    • Visual Studio 2008 -- Visual C++ 9.0
    • Visual Studio 2010 -- Visual C++ 10.0
    • Visual Studio 2012 -- Visual C++ 11.0
    • Visual Studio 2013 -- Visual C++ 12.0

    EDIT: Also, go to your project folder and delete the *.pro.user file. Then, open the project again. This lets you reconfigure with a different kit.
