Qt for Android installation
I work with QtCreator and the MSVC2012 compiler now and want test the Android developement with Qt. I read the good documentation from Qt for it and installed the half dozen needed packages out of Qt.
Now I must install Qt for Android: Qt 5.5.1 for Android (Windows 32-bit, 1.1 GB) ?
Its not really clear for me what is in this package. It seems that the whole Creator is integrated in it. Now I fear that I can destroy my old installation with it.
What I want is take my old Creator installation and add only the Android-Kit.
Is this possible and how can I do it ?
Did you use the Online Installer for that ? If so you can run the maintenance tool and add the Android Qt build to your setup.
The online and online installed make the same I think.
Anyway if I take my old installation path (c:\Qt) the setup says that it deletes the folder before installation and this setup is not recommended.
Where can I find the maintenance tool ?
Ok, I found a local installed maintenance tool in C:\Qt\Qt5.5.1.
But with this tool I can only update my version and not install the android kit.
Must I make a full installation of the Android/Creator (maybe on an other computer to avoid problems) and put it by hand together.
Or is it recommended to install and use a second full Qt version ?
Damn why is it to complicated. The Creator support a very flexible kit-management but is impossible to get new kits !?
That's because you used the offline installer which is targeted to people who wants to work with a single version of Qt. The online installer allows you to update/modify/remove Qt versions.
Unless you made modification to your installation you can simply replace with the one from the online installer.
Thank you for the help.
The offline-installer works indeed as I wished (and expected). It installs all in an other folder structure than the offline-installer. Here it is possible to integrate different kits.
Beside as a tip. The warning of the online-installer that it is not recommended to install in a not empty dircectory can be ignored. Because of the complete different folder structure there is no conflict to the offline-installed-version. The old version stays alive and can used as before - same with the start-menu in windows.
How can I mark the question as solved ?
[SOLVED] does not work?
Nop it doesn't. You have the "Topic Tool" to mark the thread as solved :)
