Is it possible to use the Qt Extension with VS Community
On another thread it was suggested to me that the Add On/extension for VS Community might make things easier.
I tried downloading a couple of versions but it says it cannot find a version of VS that is acceptable.
Is there perhaps another download I missed ?
I'm using the newest version of Community and I need to use Qt 4.8.1
please see @Chris-Kawa post
It is possible but not sure the newest is supported yet.
also, to use older Qt, you must likely have to compile it yourself since the pre-compiled
downloadable packs are not available for old qt and newest compilers.
You're out of luck. VS2015 has removed the support for add-ins.
The add-in needs to be ported to a VS extension for VS2015 and the word is it's not gonna be soon.
It's also unlikely that a new extension would support Qt4.
There's an unofficial extension which is a port of the add-in called Qt5Package, but, as the name suggests, it only supports Qt5.
So your options are:
- update to Qt5 and use the unofficial extension for now
- downgrade to VS2013 and use add-in 1.1.11, which was the last one still supporting Qt4.
OK thanks - I'll just carry on as I am then,.
