QT Offline Install option?



  • Is there an offline install option, I go through a proxy and when I try to install it fails to connect and times out.

    I am installing "qt-opensource-windows-x86-msvc2013_64-5.5.1.exe"
    from here
    http://download.qt.io/official_releases/qt/5.5/5.5.1/

    (It is 842mb , it shouldn't need to get anything else to do an initial install)



  • Hi @runfastman,

    (It is 842mb , it shouldn't need to get anything else to do an initial install)

    Yes, that sounds like an offline installer - they're typically 600MB ~ 1GB, whereas the online installers are 10 ~ 30MB.

    So is the offline installer not working for you? (And have you verified the installer's MD5 or SHA sums?)

    Cheers.



  • Thanks for the fast response.

    It sits trying to login on the "Qt Account - Your unified login to everything Qt" Step.

    After a while it gives "Connection to server failed. Trying again..."
    Finally it gives "Connection timed out".

    I am sure it is because I am behind a proxy, I have this problem with other software, but I can usually set the proxy address so that it can still connect.

    I don't see why the installer needs to connect to the server.



  • I believe the installer has a number of command line options, including one for setting the proxy. Try running the installer with the --help option to see what options are available.



  • That worked thanks.

    you use "--proxy <proxyaddress>"

    Great!

    It would probably make sense for an "offline" installer to also support options for skipping the license check (at least for open-source licensed users) too.

    Don't forget to mark the topic as "Solved" :)

    Cheers.
