Addin not visible in Visual Studio 2012

  • Hello,

    I have a fresh install of the newest Qt, the Qt-Addin and Visual Studio Professional 2012 (under Win 8.1 64bit).
    Now my problem is, the Qt5-Menu-entry is not showing up, it is registered in Tools->Options->Environment->Add-in Security, adding the path to “C:\Program Files (x86)\Digia\Qt5VSAddin\11.0”, and VS is running as Administrator. Now if I open a new project, the Qt5-Projects in the templates do show up, but if I make a new Qt5-Project, I get the error "Unable to find a Qt-Build", but I can't specifiy a Qt-buld without the Qt5-Menu.

    Reinstallation didn't solve this problem either and I don't know what else I can do.

  • Same of your configuration but with similar problem. In my case the Visual Studio 2012 show an error at staurp informing that the Qt add-in (version 1.2.4) can not be loaded with the error "Unable to find specified file" error number 80070002. Tested in two different systems Windows 7 and Windows 8.1, both 64 bit and both with Visual Studio 2012, same error.

    Hope someone will know how to fix this issue...

  • I installed VS 2013 Professional on a Win7 64bit system and there it works without problems, so it must either be VS 2012 or Win8 that causes this.

  • Ok, I just retried it under Win8, the problem seems to be, that the newest Qt-Addin is incompatible with VS2012, if I use VS2013 it works perfectly.

  • I have reported "QTVSADDINBUG-392":
