Building QT4.7.3 for VBox

  • I need to build QT4.7.3 in order to get required libs for building VBox5.0.0 on win7. The required libs from QT4.7.3 are QtCore4.lib, VBoxQtCore4.lib, QtCoreVBox4.lib, QtNetwork4.lib, VBoxQtNetwork4.lib, QtNetworkVBox4.lib. However, after downloading source code of QT4.7.3 and building it, only QtCore4.lib and QtNetwork4.lib are present under ..\qt-4.7.3\lib.

    I'm wondering how to get the other libs? From the names of the missing libs, it seems they are specifically related to VBox. Do I need to download additional code to build those VBox related libs?

    The build commands that I used to build QT are:
    configure -debug-and-release -opensource -platform win32-msvc2010
    ..\jom\jom.exe -j 4

    The source code of QT4.7.3 is downloaded from (

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    You should rather build against the latest version of Qt 4 (4.8.7)

    The VBoxQt**.lib files are not part of Qt
