Maintenance Tool reports corrupted installation



  • I have Qt 5.4 on Windows 7(sp1), which was updated from an earlier installation of Qt5.0.
    When I start MaintenanceTool.exe I get an error dialog saying:
    Your installation seems to be corrupted. Please consider re-installing from scratch.

    When I hit ok the maintenance tool opens up and appears to work correctly.
    Qt Creator starts and seems to be working as well.
    Just wondering if there is a repair tool to fix whatever is wrong, or log files I can inspect to see if this is fixable, or should I follow the suggestion given and re-install?

    Here's what I have found so far...

    D:> MaintenanceTool.exe -v

    Thanx

    Hi @LesF,

    It looks like nobody here knows how to answer your question. I suggest asking at the Interest mailing list (you need to subscribe first), to reach the Qt engineers.



  • Hi, I've encountered the same problem. I'm also running Qt on Windows 7(sp1) professional.

    As described above: when I start MaintenanceTool.exe I get an error dialog saying:
    "Your installation seems to be corrupted. Please consider re-installing from scratch."

    A few days later, the MaintenanceTool.exe would not start at all. So I can not uninstall Qt. . .

    The following solution will let you start MaintenanceTool.exe and let you uninstall Qt.
    Go to your Qt Folder on C:/Qt
    See if you can find a file called "MaintenanceTool.dat"
    -> In my case, I could not find it, and it appeared to be named as "MaintenanceTool.dat.New".
    Rename the "MaintenanceTool.dat.New" file to -> "MaintenanceTool.dat"
    Try relaunching MaintenanceTool.exe (It should start now)
    Select the "Uninstall Only" box, then press "Next", then press "Uninstall".

    If you need, Re-install Qt by downloading a fresh version from the Qt website.

    Hope this helps. Nick D.
