Qt Creator doesn't want to start

  • Hey,
    I think I need yours help.
    I just have downloaded Qt ("qt-opensource-windows-x86-1.6.0-7-online.exe") after that i've installed it ... but now the programm soesn't want to start ...
    If i'm doubleclicking the "qtcreator.exe" there happens nothing, even if I select "run as admin".

    I'm using windows 8.1 64bit

    If you could help me, I would be very happy :)


  • Hi, try installing Qt again (to another place for example C:\Qt2 instead of C:\Qt) when the Qt Setup ends with the title "Completing the Qt Wizard" and you click the "Finish" button does Notepad and Qt Creator both start or just one of them?

  • Hey,
    If I reinstall Qt only the readme opens ...

  • Hmmm, just guessing but do you have any anti-virus programs like McAfee or Norton running? If so disable them and try again.

  • ... nothing happens ... still not ...

  • Hmmm, ok, when installing Qt what directory did you specify, the default C:\Qt or something else?
    (If you installed to C:\Program Files (x86) that could explain why Qt Creator doesn't launch.)

    Also, open the directory where you installed Qt, is there an InstallationLog.txt file in there? If so, could you look at the last lines?

  • Hey,
    sorry, I've been busy.

    Ehm I've install it in C:/Qt , C:/programes/Qt and D:/Qt.
    Of course I#ve deinstall it everytime ... I also cleaned the reg.

    But yea it still wont work ... here're the last lines:

    QtPatchOperation::getDirContent match: 'C:/Qt/5.4/msvc2013_64_opengl/mkspecs/qfeatures.pri'
    QtPatchOperation::getDirContent match: 'C:/Qt/5.4/msvc2013_64_opengl/mkspecs/qmodule.pri'

  • Hmmm, the log mentions Visual Studio 2013, have you installed it?

  • ehm ... nop Oo

  • If you want you can download Visual Studio 2013 from "here":http://go.microsoft.com/?linkid=9863608

  • Okey, but why?

    Because you are installing Qt for Visual Studio 2013, so you would need to have MSVC2013 to build software with it and the only way is to get it from Microsoft's website

  • I still do not start, even if I have restart it again ...
