Does the 5.6 RC include VS2015 integration?



  • I'm still using the previous 5.6 version with 2015 (which did not have Qt integration.)

    I've heard that the official release will have 32-bit/64-bit MSVC 2015 support.

    Is this present in the release candidate?



  • @VRHans Yes



  • Much appreciated :)



  • It turns out that it has most of the integration with VS 2015, the one thing missing (that I can tell) is the visual studio add-in, the version available for download doesn't recognize VS 2015.

    hi
    As far as i know the plugin-api was
    removed in 2015 so the Qt plugin is no longer available.



  • The Visual Studio Add-In mechanism was deprecated in vs 2013, and removed entirely in 2015 - which is why VSIX extensions are what Qt needs to build going forward, so plugins are still possible (of course) they're just extensions rather than add-ins.

    I seriously hope Qt is planning on producing a VS 2015 extension because this was claimed to be the case when we bought our Qt licenses.

    well considering the dedication to visual studio support even for new Qt and older
    VS, im pretty sure they will do it at some point.

    If you a licenses owner. (lucky you :) I would just call and ask them.
    For the price pr month. They must offer excellent support.

    This is a user forum so it's rare that devs hang out here and reply.
