Installing Qt in windows without VS ?
I have a bad connection to internet, so I have to use the offline version of Qt Creator installer.
When I visited the download page, I found next to installer names (VS 201X).
I don't know if that means that I have to install Visual Studio ? Because i want to avoid VS in my computer.
I presume you can use the mingw system to build your applications with GCC (Creator can be your IDE.)
Description: Qt Enterprise offline installer for Windows host operating system. The package provides everything you need to start Qt development:
Qt Framework Sources (All essential and relevant Qt-Project add-on modules)
Qt Framework Prebuilt Binaries for host platform
Qt Enterprise Add-ons for Qt Framework
Qt Creator IDE for Host Operating System
Other useful tools & utilities (For example for easy deployment)
Apologies, I don't know the licensing behind that version - I presume it's available without a commercial license. If that's not the case, sorry :(.
I will try with mygwin. I don't want to install a heavy software like VS (i don't like it -_-)
@VRHans Hi VRHans! Where can I find this file? ("Filename: qt-windows-x86-mingw-w64-492-5.6.0.exe")
I do not have it
You'll have to search, it used to be up on the framework downloads site.
I only see the 32-bit version right now.
There's a Qt 5.7 now. See this download directory.
The file for MinGW is named
@Chris-Kawa - does that contain both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Qt - or just 32-bit?
@VRHans No. 64bit precompiled packages are only provided for MSVC. For MinGW you'd need to compile it yourself.
Btw. There's no need to install Visual Studio to get MSVC. Microsoft now provides a package called
Microsoft Visual C++ Build Tools 2015that contains only the tool chain, without the IDE or other language support. It can be downloaded from the official download page from the section "Tools for Visual Studio 2015 - > Microsoft Visual C++ Build Tools 2015". This package can be used with Qt Creator.

That's what I figured - thanks! :)
