Qt Creator 3.4.0 on Windows + clang: is this combination hopelessly broken?

  • I spent some time yesterday trying to get the simple demo Qt apps building and running with clang. I would like to use clang because of its enhanced error-reporting, and I'm spoiled by it from my experience with XCode. I got these demo apps working with minGW and the compiler from Visual Studio 2013 in 32-bit and 64-bit forms, but I had no luck with clang.

    I found some threads where folks were talking about building the Qt library from source using Clang, but those were very old threads and I wasn't able to glean much that was useful. I have clang 3.6.0 installed:

    >clang --version
    clang version 3.6.0 (tags/RELEASE_360/final)
    Target: i686-pc-windows-gnu
    Thread model: posix

    Thanks for any assistance. A definitive "no, it's broken forever, or not expected to work until ..." would be helpful too.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    You should rather bring this question on the interest mailing list. You'll find there Qt's developers/maintainers (this forum is more user oriented)

    You can also try the #qt IRC channel

  • Thank you, I will try that.
