Configuration is faulty. Check the Issues view for details. Error while building/deploying project dashboard (kit: Desktop Qt 5.5.0 MSVC2013 64bit)



  • Hi: When I try to run one of the tutorial examples, I get this error: Configuration is faulty. Check the Issues view for details.
    Error while building/deploying project dashboard (kit: Desktop Qt 5.5.0 MSVC2013 64bit)
    When executing step "Make"
    Does anyone know what it means? I have run the maintenance.exe tool but the same things keeps happening. Also under Build and Run, Kit, under auto-detected, QT Creators show red icons with two entries: both with MSVC2013 64bit2, and under "Name," Desktop Qt %{Qt:Version} MSVC2013 64bit2
    Does anyone know how to fix this? Is it possible to switch to using MinGw? If so, how?
    Thank you,
    Steve



  • I am using windows 7 64 bits and I installed QT Creator by clicking on the links and running: qt-unified-windows-x86-2.0.2-2-online.exe

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Might be a silly question but do you have Visual Studio 2013 properly installed ?



  • Probably not, which is why I am asking about an alternative to Visual Studio 2013. Thank you



  • I have the resdistributable:Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable (x64) - 12.0.3050. Do I need the actual program, in order for QT Creator to run?


  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    You need to install Visual Studio 2013 if you want to use the MSVC2013 build of Qt. If you do not want to use Visual Studio at all, install the MinGW package which provides also the MinGW compiler.



  • 2015 Visual Studio would not install (error with .net framework 4.6) However, Express Visual Studio did install. But I had to download and install the 2015 c++ redistributable exe. I also installed the 2013 c++ redistributable. I have the same error in QT creator when I try to run/build a program. "Error while building/deploying project fancybrowser (kit: Desktop Qt 5.5.1 MSVC2013 64bit)
    When executing step "Make"


  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    What is the complete error message ?



  • this is in the bottom panel of QT Creator. Fancybrowser is one of the examples that come with QT Creator. "Error while building/deploying project fancybrowser (kit: Desktop Qt 5.5.1 MSVC2013 64bit)
    When executing step "Make"


  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    Just to be sure we are talking about the same setup: Did you install Visual Studio 2013 ?



  • Visual Studio would not install because I have not been able to install or update frewwork 4.6. However I was able to install Express Visual Studio 2015.


  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    Again: You can't mix and match Visual Studio versions. They are not compatible one with the other. So if you insist on using Visual Studio 2015, you either have to build Qt yourself or install the Qt 5.6 Beta.



  • It's not that I prefer VS 2015 but that that is the version the Microsoft gives me when I ask to download. Maybe there is a way to download VS 2013. But the think is that I experience is that I can't download any the Microsoft Visual Studios because of of various errors. I was able to install VS EXPRESS 2015. But are you saying the QT will not not work with an Express version of VS? I see that you are saying that I would need Qt 5.6 Beta to work with VS 2015. But, again, I have VS EXPRESS not the full VS. Where or how would I use the MinGW package with QT? I would use MiniGW and with QT Creator, if I could see directions and how to configure QT Creator to work with MiniGW
    Thank you

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    No, I'm not saying anything like that.

    What I am saying is that you can't use a Visual Studio 2013 built library with Visual Studio 2015. Whether you are using an Express Edition or a Professional Edition doesn't mater, the compiler is the same.

    Installing Qt + MinGW is easy: take the online installer, select Qt for MinGW plus the MinGW compiler that is also provided. And that's all, everything is provided. There's no need to download or install an other version of MinGW.

    By the way it's Qt, QT stands for Apple QuickTime.



  • I have had some confusion with MiniGW and Qt. Does this look like the correct link? https://wiki.qt.io/MinGW-64-bit Once I install it, will Qt automatically see it?
    Thank you so very much
    Steve


  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    Like I already wrote: you don't need any external download of MinGW. The installer provides the correct version, install that one, that's all.



  • I remember that it took a long time to download Qt. Where is the MiniGw installer that Qt downloaded?



  • In the Qt Maintenance Tool, Add components, under Tool, it shows a number of version of the MiniGW tool. I chose the most recent one, 4.9xxx. Is this the kind of thing you have been telling me to do? Or is there some other way, by opening up Qt Creator (Community) Thank you again very much SE

    Hi @selster,

    Yes, that will install the MinGW compiler that you need. Make sure Qt Creator is not running when you install that. Once the MinGW compiler is installed, Qt Creator will automatically see it.

    If you haven't already, you also need to install Qt 5.5.1 for MinGW.

    To recap, you need 3 components to develop apps with Qt:

    • The Qt Creator IDE (latest version 3.5.1)
    • The Qt libraries (latest version 5.5.1)
    • A compiler that is compatible with your Qt libraries

    The Qt Maintenance Tool is a helper program that lets you select and download these components.



  • In the Qt Maintenance Tool, I have

    1. Qt Creator 3.5.1
    2. I can check and download Qt 5.5.1
    3. But I don't know what or where is a compiler? What's it called?

    @selster said:

    MinGW 4.9.2. It is available under "Tools", as you found in an earlier post.

    Note: A compiler is a tool which converts your source code into a program.

    Make sure you select and download Qt 5.5.1 for MinGW. Qt 5.5.1 for MSVC (Visual Studio) will not work with your MinGW compiler.



  • I can now build and run some example project !!! However, if I try to run the example "fancybrowser", I get build errors like:
    Warnings while parsing QML type information of C:/Qt/5.5/mingw492_32/qml/QtPositioning:
    C:\Qt\5.5\mingw492_32\qml\QtPositioning\plugins.qmltypes:1:24: Reading only version 1.1 parts.
    C:\Qt\5.5\mingw492_32\qml\QtPositioning\plugins.qmltypes:10:5: Expected only Component and ModuleApi object definitions.



  • other projects such as texteditor and clocks build and run, even thought they have similar warnings?

    Great!

    However, if I try to run the example "fancybrowser", I get build errors like:
    Warnings while parsing QML type information of C:/Qt/5.5/mingw492_32/qml/QtPositioning:
    C:\Qt\5.5\mingw492_32\qml\QtPositioning\plugins.qmltypes:1:24: Reading only version 1.1 parts.
    C:\Qt\5.5\mingw492_32\qml\QtPositioning\plugins.qmltypes:10:5: Expected only Component and ModuleApi object definitions.

    I recommend you start with simpler examples. The browser is quite complex; I don't fully understand it myself so I can't help you with those warning messages.
