A bit confused about tool availability in new SDK 1.1

  • Hello,

    I just upgraded to the new SDK (on Windows 7) using the offline installer and am a bit confused about the availability of some tools.

    1. Designer. Where did this go? I can see the exe in the QtCreator\bin folder, but it seems a bit backward to launch it from there. Should there be a shortcut somewhere?

    2. Assistant. Same deal

    3. Linguist. When I try to launch the Help from Linguist I get an error message saying:

      Unable to launch Qt Assistant (C:\qt_47_desktop_creator\bin\assistant)

    Given that my installation folder is C:\Dev\QtSDK that is no great surprise. Is the path to Assistant user editable? I tried searching for it on the file system and in the registry but couldn't locate it.

    Apologies if this has been asked before -- I did a quick search but couldn't find anything relevant.

    Designer and assistant are both integrated into Qt Creator, so there is no longer a need to have those separate. They are build as part of Qt, so you will get them when building a new Qt, if you really need want the standalone tools.

    Qt Linguist not starting is most likely a bug. Could you please "file a bugreport":http://bugreports.qt.nokia.com/ for that? Thanks!

  • There are still uses for the stand alone tools, IMHO. One is that not everyone wants to use Qt Creator (even though it rocks!), and another is that not everyone likes the multiple-page implementation Qt Creator uses vs the way how Assistant does it (list vs. tabs).
