The .pro file could not be parsed message

  • Here is my .pro file -- can someone spot why it's not parsing? I don't think I did anything to it directly.

    # Project created by QtCreator 2016-03-21T16:13:10
    QT       += core gui
    greaterThan(QT_MAJOR_VERSION, 4): QT += widgets
    TARGET = AnimationStuff
    TEMPLATE = app
    SOURCES += main.cpp\
            dialog.cpp \
    HEADERS  += dialog.h \
    FORMS    += dialog.ui

    At first sight it looks good

    Did you do a copy/paste from somewhere ?

    If so, you might be having some stray char somewhere. Either search for them or since the file is pretty short, delete and rewrite the content by hand.

  • I'm not entirely sure if this will work for you, but I just right-clicked a random .cpp file in the project and clicked build. After it successfully built that, for some reason the two buttons in the lower left to Run and Start Debugging became enabled and I was able to Run. Good luck
