Compiler error



  • i am a beginner and i have installed QT 3.3.0(open source) for creating desktop applications.When I tried to run a program it displayed the following error message [Error while building/deploying project untitled (kit: Desktop Qt 5.4.0 MSVC2013 64bit) When executing step "Make"] .I know this question has been asked before and i read a few answers on forum and also tried reading the manual but couldnt understand anything. I would be grateful if someone could help me.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Since you installed the MSVC2013 version of Qt, you also need to install Visual Studio 2013 from Microsoft's website.

    If you don't want that then you should use the MinGW version which comes with the compiler integrated.



  • can you post the link of the integrated version



  • I installed visual studio and its working...Thanks a lot
