Attempting to Install Qt Static 5.3.2 when I get the following error



  • So I wanted to build Qt Static so my application can run w/o the Qt. debugger following the instructions from link below.

    http://qt-project.org/wiki/How-to-build-a-static-Qt-for-Windows-MinGW

    The script I used is called Windows-build-qt-static.ps1.

    I executed the script in Windows Powershell as instructed and change the configure line parameters to build with 5.3.2 as oppose to 5.2.

    15 minutes into the build I got the following error.

    mingw32-make[1]: Target 'install' not remade because of errors.
    mingw32-make[1]: Leaving directory 'C:/Qt/Static/src/qt-everywhere-opensource-src-5.3.2/qtbase'
    Makefile:75: recipe for target 'module-qtbase-install_subtargets' failed
    mingw32-make: *** [module-qtbase-install_subtargets] Error 2
    mingw32-make: Target 'install' not remade because of errors.

    I don't fully understand what goes on into the building of a developer's environment so any advice on solving this issue would be appreciated.

    EDIT: So I have dived into the script to see if I can figure out what's wrong.
    Here is the configure line as requested.
    cmd /c "configure.bat -static -debug-and-release -platform win32-g++ -prefix $QtDir -qt-zlib -qt-pcre -qt-libpng -qt-libjpeg -qt-freetype -opengl desktop -qt-sql-sqlite -no-openssl
    -opensource -confirm-license `
    -make libs -nomake tools -nomake examples -nomake tests"
    mingw32-make -k -j4
    mingw32-make -k install
    Pop-Location

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    You should add the configure line you used to build Qt



  • http://qt-project.org/wiki/How-to-build-a-static-Qt-for-Windows-MinGW

    I was building a Static Qt using the above instructions.

    The script I used is called Windows-build-qt-static.ps1.

    I am not sure what you mean by configure line But I executed the script in Windows Powershell as instructed and change the configure line parameters to build with 5.3.2 as oppose to 5.2.

    I attempted to build a Qt Static because I simply want to run my application on it's own w/o Qt's debugger.
