Make fails on fresh install of QT SDK



  • I googled for a solution to this problem (see errors below) and it seems to be related to the mingw path, but I don't have anything about mingw in my path variable. This is a fresh install of QT Creator (2.20) QT (4.7.4) 32 bit on a Windows 7 machine

  • This shouldn't be happening with the new version of Qt SDK but there was similar problem with older version. According to "this article":http://qt-devnotes.blogspot.com/2010/01/cqt200905mingwbinmingw32-makeexe.html the problem might be related to PATH environment variable. Please check the provided link for details.



  • I encountered this same problem. It turned out to be having a git installation in the path.



  • I've tried adding the following to my path and restarted the application. when i open a new dos window i can see the new entries...

    e:\QtSDK\QtCreator\bin;E:\QtSDK\mingw\bin\

    same error

  • Try using a clean build environment (e.g. the "Clear System Environment" option under Build Environment in the project settings in Qt Creator).
