Problem with building project in QtCreator

  • I've recently installed the last version of QtCreator and since then I have a serious problem with building every project. I can't compile both QtProject and normal C++ "Hello World".
    That's the error I get:

    "Could not start process "nmake.exe"
    Error while building/deploying project untitled (kit: Desktop Qt 5.4.1 MSVC2013 OpenGL 64bit)
    When executing step "Make" "

    The settings of compiler, debugger etc seem to be proper.
    Please help me with this problem.

  • Can you see the call to nmake in the console? Maybe you can copy it and execute it in a terminal to see the error message. I remember I sometimes had problems with nmake not being in my PATH.

  • @cybercatalyst Thanks for your answer.
    In the beginning I couldn't call nmake in console. After setting the path I get:
    "NMAKE: fatal error U1064: MAKEFILE not found and no target specified"

  • can you execute from the build directory with the exact call?

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Do you have that error also with a project generated from Qt Creator ?
