Qt creator needs a compiler set up to build. Configure a compiler in kit options



  • Qt Creator 3.5.1 Windows 7 Enterprise SP1

    Created a first Qt widget project with a simple label, try to compile, but got the following message: Qt creator needs a compiler set up to build. Configure a compiler in kit options. I have MinGW and selected in kit option, but it still complains about no compiler. Please help

    I've already had MinGW installed and listed under 'Manual' section of
    the compilers tab for 'Build & Run' option and it is pointing to C:\MinGW\bin\g++.exe (ABI: x86-window)

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    You also need to make it known the Kit.

    By the way, why not use the MinGW compiler provided by Qt directly ? Doing so you would already have everything ready to use.
