Qt5 Add-in Visual studio 2013 .pro file generation doesn't work

  • I am working with Qt libraries and OpenCV libraries on Visual studio 2013.
    I can successfully create a .pro file from the Visual studio add-in.
    But when i try to open .pro file in QtCreator i can see only the project file. I cannot see my header or cpp files linked to the project. I don't know if this is the right way to do it. Any help would be appreciated.

    Can you share the content of the pro file ?

  • Here goes my .pro content:

    # ----------------------------------------------------
    # This file is generated by the Qt Visual Studio Add-in.
    # ------------------------------------------------------
    TEMPLATE = app
    TARGET = arbeittracking
    DESTDIR = ../Debug
    QT += core xml xmlpatterns widgets gui
    CONFIG += debug console
    LIBS += -LD:\\libraries\\opencv\\build\\x86\\vc12\\bin \
        opencv_core249d.dll \
        opencv_highgui249d.dll \
        opencv_imgproc249d.dll \
        opencv_features2d249d.dll \
        opencv_calib3d249d.dll \
    INCLUDEPATH += F:\opencv-2.4.9\CV\install\include
    MOC_DIR += ./GeneratedFiles/debug
    OBJECTS_DIR += debug
    UI_DIR += ./GeneratedFiles
    RCC_DIR += ./GeneratedFiles

    [edit: added coding tags SGaist]

    That list of dlls looks wrong. You should have a list of -lopencv_XXX249d

    You don't link agains dlls but lib files

  • Ok i see a problem there i resolved it. But i have added all these library links after creating the .pro file in Visual studio. And the main issue stays the same like when i generate a .pro file from VS add-in and i open the .pro file with qtcreator i dont see my header files or cpp files but i just see the .pro content. It would be good if i could have attached a snapshot of my issue in QtCreator here.

    It seems that when generating the pro file neither SOURCES not HEADERS have been added. You can do it by hand and you should see your code files correctly
