QtQuickControls 2 and WinRT

  • I am developing a simple mobile application that uses QtQuickControls 2 for its UI. For the moment, everything works great on Android. However, I cannot get the application to run on Windows Phone 8.1, the application closes/crashes as soon as it is launched. No console output is recevied (even if I use qDebug).

    I have tested deploying some Qt examples, all of them worked, except the examples that used QtQuickControls 2 (e.g. the gallery application), which showed the same behavior as my application.

    Dev setup information:

    • Qt 5.7
    • Windows 10 64-bit
    • Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 (Community Edition)


    When compiling, I get the following warning:

    WARNING: winrt_manifest_install.path is not defined: install target not created

    Does anyone have a solution for this issue?
