Source Files for MySQL Plugin

  • Hey everbody,

    i tried to get my MySQL Plugin to work for hours now and it seems i just don't get it. It seems that the problem I have is that i miss the mysql.pro file to compile the library. People keep saying I need the "Qt Source files" and I can get them via the Qt Maintenance Tool, but I cant find it there. Even after installing everything I can pick via this tool it is still not there. I'm using Qt 5.5 by the way.

    I hope you guy can help me.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Did you check the "Source Components" under Qt -> Qt 5.5 ?

  • Hi,

    yes i did. It also shows them as installed. There are "Add-Ons" and "Essentials" and both seem to be installed. When I go to plugins/sqldrivers/ I only have some *.dll files but no folder "mysql".

    Looks like you are looking in the pre-built Qt folder not the Src folder

  • You're right. I found it and try to build it now. Thanks for the hint.
