Correct platform for configure on windows 64 bit, msvc-2015?
Here is the configure I ran, and the error it gave:
C:\Qt\Qt-5.5.1\qtbase\configure.bat -top-level -release -nomake tests -nomake examples -skip qtdeclarative -skip qtquickcontrols -skip qtwebchannel -skip qt3D -skip qtsensors -skip qtserialport -skip qtwayland -skip qtandroidextras -icu
Unable to detect the platform from environment. Use -platform command lineargument or set the QMAKESPEC environment variable and run configure again
See the README file for a list of supported operating systems and compilers.
The list of supported platforms does not seem to have either 64 bit or msvc-2015. Help?
VS version and platform is detected automatically when you run configure and compilation from the compiler configured command prompt:
<VS install dir>\VC\vcvarsall.bat amd64.
Btw. you'll get a lot cleaner build if you use prefix:
configure -prefix "X:/some/install/dir/" ... nmake nmake install // copies a clean build and includes without temporary build artifacts to the prefix location //delete build folder, saves tons of space
That did it, Chris... thank you!
