Unknown Module QWebEngine



  • I recently installed 5.6 on my Windows box. I am a long time C++ programmer but I am not too familiar with the internal workings of QT. I did get the impression I was going to have to switch the application I was working on from QWebView to QWebEngine. After installing I got the error: Unknown module(s) in QT: webkitwidgets. I changed the .pro file to include webenginewidgets and I am now getting the Unknown module(s) in QT: webenginewidgets. I poked around in the maintenance tool. It looks like it is installed. Is there something I need to do to make this work?



  • If you choose mingw compiler suite - no webengine module for you ;)
    WebEngine (and modules derived from) is on Windows only aviable throug Microsoft compiler suite (visual studio, or stand alone).



  • @Aleksej-Ivanovic I installed the MSVC community edition and things are working now. Thank you.
