Solved Latest version of Qt cant compile anything in .c with MinGW (Win 10 x64)
I have a problem with my fresh installation of Qt 5.6.0 with the latest MinGW listed in the Qt installer. It does not compile my files, if I am set to the debugging mode of a project (the computer icon above the run icon, in the bottom left corner of the Qt Creator). But if I switch it to the deployment mode, it suddenly does work. But debugger doesnt do anything in that case.
When I try to compile & run a new, just written project in debugging/developing mod (I am not sure, since it is still written in my language - I am not using it in English) it gives me the folloving:
error: INTERNAL: readdir: No such file or directory. Stop.
When I open the error, I see this:
20:37:48: Configuration unchanged, skipping qmake step. 20:37:48: Starting: "C:\Qt\Tools\mingw492_32\bin\mingw32-make.exe" mingw32-make: *** INTERNAL: readdir: No such file or directory. Stop. 20:37:48: The process "C:\Qt\Tools\mingw492_32\bin\mingw32-make.exe" exited with code 2. Error while building/deploying project Matice_pointer_na_pointer (kit: Desktop Qt 5.6.0 MinGW 32bit) When executing step "Make" 20:37:48: Elapsed time: 00:00.
I did some digging on this forum, but sadly, I didnt find any solution yet. No help came with google, either.
I checked my PATH: there is no MinGW or something like that in there (in case you would be wondering)
Hi and welcome to devnet,
Can you share your .pro file ?
TEMPLATE = app CONFIG += console CONFIG -= app_bundle CONFIG -= qt SOURCES += main.c
Here it is.
@SGaist Any ideas?
Just tested it with a hello world main.c both in debug and release mode and not problem at all.
Do you have your project in path with spaces ?
@SGaist Apparently, having the project in a folder with "&" symbol in its filepath was an issue. I moved all my projects into a folder without spaces and special characters, and it works. Thank you, I don't think I'd figure it out without your help. :)
Paths can be tricky on Windows
You're welcome !
Since you have it working now, please mark the thread as solved using the "Topic Tool" button so that other forum users may know a solution has been found :)

@SGaist I am getting the same error. This is my project path:
As you can see, I dont have any spaces or special characters in my path, except for the colon of C drive, which cannot removed by my knowledge. Can you please help me out?
Thanks in advance. Really appreciate the help.
P.S. I am a newbie here. So, please try to help me in layman terms.
Hi @asthana-ujjwal and welcome to devnet,
Can you show your .pro file ?
