Flags to recreate same prebuilt binaries on ex-supported platform

  • Hello,

    I have to deal with old software plugins and source code, built with Qt 4.8.2 and msvc2005.

    I know it's no more supported, and I can't find anymore the Qt prebuilt binaries for this.
    I know I can build Qt from archive sources, and I will, unless I can put my hand on the old Qt package (someone ? :) ).
    I also know that these old softwares and plugins were developed using the corresponding Qt prebuilt package.

    So, my question is:

    • Is there a list of all flags used to build these Qt prebuilt packages in order to recreate them and keep the same compatibility with the old software and its plugin mechanism?

    Note: For my case, it's impossible to upgrade to a fresher compiler, nor Qt version :/

    Thanks a lot for your help!

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    The only archive I know for the this version can be located here But there's no VS2005 version only 2008 and 2010 and I don't remember a pre-built package for VS2005.

    As for the options used, I can't remember where you can get them. You can try the the interest mailing list, you'll find there Qt's developers/maintainers (this forum is more user oriented)
