QT new install fails to compile, doesnt find compiler.
I have been coding in C++ on and off for some time. I used to have Visual C, but has become too expensive for what I do. I have used Eclipse for some time but I need to develop an application for windows. In an Eclipse forum I fund QT.
I have installed QT and a first glance looks fantastic, but I cannot compile. I have MinGW as the engine.
On the Properties->build->kit the automatic kit was found but there is no compiler listed and the drop down box is greyed and a cannot select a compiler. I tried some of the suggestions that is can find on the web adding a new kit and a new compiler but still cannot make it compile.
I'm not at home right now, but does anyone have any suggestions to make this thing work?
Hi and welcome
You could try to uninstall Qt.
Then use this
That should install mingw compiler and Qt version for it.
And just work out of the box. hopefully :)
Thanks, I'm traveling for business right now. I will try your suggestion on Friday.
Ok. happy traveling.
If you have Avast as scanner. then disable during install.
The solution worked perfectly. Thanks
