Qt is not compiling for Windows Phone 8

  • Hi guys.

    I recently downloaded Qt 5.4 for WinRT to develop apps for Windows Phone, but it isn't compiling my code for WP8.
    That's the error from Compile Output:
    @MAKEFILE_GENERATOR variable not set as a result of parsing : Possibly qmake was not able to find files included using "include(..)" - enable qmake debugging to investigate more.
    20:45:53: The process "C:\Qt\Qt5.4.0\5.4\winphone_x86\bin\qmake.exe" exited with code 3.
    Error while building/deploying project test (kit: Qt 5.4.0 for Windows Phone x86 MSVC2013 32bit (Emulator))
    When executing step "qmake"@

    I've installed Visual Studio 2013 Ultimate, as well Windows Phone 8.0 SDK from VS2013 setup.

    That's de .pro file
    @QT += core gui

    greaterThan(QT_MAJOR_VERSION, 4): QT += widgets

    TARGET = test
    TEMPLATE = app

    SOURCES += main.cpp

    HEADERS += mainwindow.h

    FORMS += mainwindow.ui

    But it compiles without problems for Windows Runtime (Metro)
    I've already searched, no answers.

    Sorry for my terrible english anyway

  • Hi Henry,

    as you see in this wiki article "New Features in Qt 5.4": , there is a comment "Windows Phone 8.1 minimum supported version".

    So please download the Windows Phone SDK 8.1 ("Windows Phone SDK 8.1": and let us know if it worked!

  • Thanks for te answer Jsee.
    I'll try with WP8.1 SDK.
