Release app building debug versions



  • Hi. I am having a problem where my debug cases in my .pro files are being built when I have my projects set to release. Here is the lay of the land.

    I have two projects. One is a DLL and one is an EXE, both are open in a single instance of Qt Creator. My EXE uses the DLL.

    My dll has this section for its debug and release differences:

    @
    win32:debug {
    LIBS += ../../common/openAL/windows/libs/Win32/OpenAL32.lib
    ../../common/boost_1_46_0/stage.win32/lib/libboost_system-vc90-mt-gd-1_46.lib
    ../../common/boost_1_46_0/stage.win32/lib/libboost_filesystem-vc90-mt-gd-1_46.lib
    }

    win32:release {
    LIBS += ../../common/openAL/windows/libs/Win32/OpenAL32.lib
    ../../common/boost_1_46_0/stage.win32/lib/libboost_system-vc90-mt-1_46.lib
    ../../common/boost_1_46_0/stage.win32/lib/libboost_filesystem-vc90-mt-1_46.lib
    }
    @

    And my EXE has these differences:

    @
    win32:debug{
    LIBS += ../MyDLL/MyDLL-build-desktop/debug/MyDLL.lib
    PRE_TARGETDEPS = ../MyDLL/MyDLL-build-desktop/debug/MyDLL.dll
    QMAKE_PRE_LINK = copy /Y "..\MyDLL\MyDLL-build-desktop\debug\MyDLL.dll" "debug"
    }

    win32:release{
    LIBS += ../MyDLL/MyDLL-build-desktop/release/MyDLL.lib
    PRE_TARGETDEPS = ../MyDLL/MyDLL-build-desktop/release/MyDLL.dll
    QMAKE_PRE_LINK = copy /Y "..\MyDLL\MyDLL-build-desktop\release\MyDLL.dll" "release"
    }
    @

    Now when I set Release mode for both of my projects and do a clean all/build all I am getting debug versions of msvcrt built into my release mode., if I comment out the debug sections in my .pro files then my build is correct without any debug libraries.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

  • Hi ben,

    what I do is the following, and it works:

    @
    CONFIG(debug, debug|release)
    {
    DESTDIR = ../debug
    OBJECTS_DIR = ./tmp/debug
    MOC_DIR = ./tmp/moc/debug
    }
    else
    {
    DESTDIR = ../release
    OBJECTS_DIR = ./tmp/release
    MOC_DIR = ./tmp/moc/release
    }

    @



  • That works. Thanks! Strange the other approach does not.
