# QtCreator: Debug compile against non debug lib?

• Hi there,
is there a way to compile my project in debug mode, using the Qt libs in release mode?

When I install the binary package of Qt it only comes with the release edition of the libs, when I then try to compile and debug my project it is searching for the debug edition of the libs (and I only want to debug my project not the lib code itself).

Thanks!

about what package are you talking?
IMHO all packages come with release AND debug binaries?! At least using the MaintainanceTool

• Hmm, reinstalled and all good, not sure what I have done differently before! Thanks anyway!
