Static compile in Qt 5.5 (msvc2013)
I know my question is duplicate but I so confused. I am searching some hours but can not solve my problem. :(
I installed Qt 5.5.0 in windows. 32 and 64 bit version of Qt. My compiler is Visual Studio 2013.
I want to compile my projects statically (no need to set dlls, etc beside the exe file) (Only for release output not debug ouptut)
Can you guide me step by step?
Thanks a lot.
Be aware of the licensing implication that comes with a static build.
@SGaist Hi, Thanks for your reply.
I followed the first link but have a problem. In step 3, when I create a qt5vars.cmd in desktop and run it, I get this error:
C:\Windows\System32>C:\Users\---\Desktop\qt5vars.cmd C:\Windows\System32>REM Set up \Microsoft Visual Studio 2013, where <arch> is \c amd64, \c x86, etc. The syntax of the command is incorrect. C:\Windows\System32>CALL "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\VC \vcvarsall.bat" <arch> C:\Windows\System32>
Here is the content of qt5vars.cmd:
REM Set up \Microsoft Visual Studio 2013, where <arch> is \c amd64, \c x86, etc. CALL "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\VC\vcvarsall.bat" <arch> SET _ROOT=C:\Qt\Qt5.5.0-32bit\5.5\Src SET PATH=%_ROOT%\qtbase\bin;%_ROOT%\gnuwin32\bin;%PATH% REM Uncomment the below line when using a git checkout of the source repository REM SET PATH=%_ROOT%\qtrepotools\bin;%PATH% SET QMAKESPEC=win32-msvc2013 SET _ROOT=
In the first line of the script you can see: "where <arch> is \c amd64, \c x86, etc"
So, <arch> is just a place-holder, you have to replace it with the architecture name, for example x86.
CALL "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\VC\vcvarsall.bat" x86
Thanks but another problem:
When I use this command:
configure -static -release -platform win32-msvc2013
After accepting of the terms of licence this error occurs:
Creating qmake... execute: File or path is not found (nmake) execute: File or path is not found (nmake) Cleaning qmake failed, return code -1
Developer Command Prompt for VS2013instead of
Windows Command Prompt
and now it is working but now a question:
How can I build my project statically in Qt Creator.
CONFIG += staticbut does not work.
@MohammadReza I never used statically built Qt. What exactly does not work? Any error messages?
Did you create a kit that uses your static Qt build ?
