        copy qmake.exe G:\c++\qt\qt4.7\qt-src-4.7.3\qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.7.3\bin\qmake.exe

    The syntax of the command is incorrect.
    Creating makefiles in src...
    Generating Visual Studio project files...
    execute: File or path is not found (G:\c++\qt\qt4.7\qt-src-4.7.3\qt-everywhere-opensource-src-4.7.3\bin\qmake)

    seams like it fail on copy command .. why ?

  • After which step does the problem occur?
    Is this already during the configure?

    seems like yes, as qmake is build during configure

    can you please post your configure parameters?

  • My first advice would be to try configure with the shortcut VS provides for cmd (from the start menu).

    And you also you might take a look at the already "built with Visual Studio 2008 Qt framework": and see if it provides what you need (and saves you about 3 hours to build the framework).

  • it is bug with the copy command , it has problem with the ++ sign in the path
