How to make Visual Studio 13 compile Qt projects without having Qt creator?

  • Hello, I have only just started using qt framework to develop a GUI for my coursework, but I don't know what approach to take in terms of workflow: I have visual studio 2015 and Qt creator on my laptop and a friend of mine will design objects in visual studio 2013, but he doesn't have Qt framework libraries. I was wondering if it's possible to make my friend's Visual studio compile Qt projects without the need of Qt, or should I ask him to get the whole Qt suite.

    You cannot compile Qt applications without Qt. How should it work?
    QtCreator is not needed to build Qt based applications.
    The other person has to install Qt for VS2013.
