Do I have to pay to update Qt tools since now? [Solved]
Hi, I tried to check the updates from the Maintenance Tool and when I try to login it shows the next message.
No valid license available in your Qt Account for this host platform. Please renew your license(s) from Qt Account.
I filled the form that appears after clicking on the link, but I don't get anything.
mine says the same after i updated the Maintenance tool. must be some kind of bug.
It seems you're right. Qt replied me in a post in Google+.
I hope it's repaired soon (if it's really a bug), because that bug left me really disappointed.
reading about v-play at
let me to think that you can just download v-play yourself
first line says
"Note: If you already installed Qt 5 on your system, you can skip this step and follow the instructions here."
but seems to want me to make a profile when clicking "here" so do not know what you will get in there.
Thanks for updating this q.
In Add V-Play to your existing Qt installation section of this webpage I saw a possibility to install V-Play.
I don't know if I can do it with the current Maintenance Tool, although the impossibility to update the Qt official tools is something that worries me too.
Well, I will continue as I can programming with Qt.
Well, I saw that I can run the Maintenance Tool has super user trough the console.
I will become the owner of full Qt stack.
so if you run it as root, it works ?
I had this issue with the maintenance tool (the message about no valid license). I used to have an account on the Qt website but I didn't log in for a while.
I tried to log in to the site. https://account.qt.io/ and I think I created an account with my existing e-mail address. I think that after that, running the maintenance tool worked for me as expected.
Thanks for your. i tried logging in but still wont let use the tool.
Yes, doing "sudo" directly on the executable of Maintenance Tool (I use Kubuntu/Ubuntu) it worked perfect.
Now I removed Qt Open Source and I installed V-Play, that installs the full Qt stack, and I put it in a subfolder in my own home folder to not have issues with permissions.
I recommend not install Qt in /opt, but in home folder.
ok so you solved it :)
I ended up upgrading to 5.5 and the M. tool start working again.
I'm now facing this same problem with the latest Maintenance Tool (updated April 6th, 2017). What should I do?
All I can get is the message:
No valid license available in your Qt Account for this host platform.
Please renew your license(s) from Qt Account.
And there is not a skip button ?
or a way to ignore it ?
Note if there is a skip button but its grey,
remove any text form email etc edit fields.
Thanks, I didn't notice that I can skip it. I was always using my Qt account.
well if u have a commercial licence that the right thing to do but if you are using open version then
skipping should be just fine :)
