Add Library Wizard produces weird output
I am using the Qt Creator on Window 10, Qt 5.6, msvc2015, and I wonder if this is correct:
When I add a library to the pro file via the "Add Library" wizard, the path of library is weird when different harddisk drives are used, e. g. the library is on drive C:/..., but the project is on drive D:/...
The output in the pro file is
win32: LIBS += -L$$PWD/C:/Test/Example/lib/ -lexampleLib INCLUDEPATH += $$PWD/C:/Test/Example/include DEPENDPATH += $$PWD/C:/Test/Example/include
and the library is not available, because the path is prepended with $$PWD. Is this correct?
It works, when the pro file and the library are on the same drive.
win32: LIBS += -L$$PWD/../../Test/Example/lib/ -lexampleLib INCLUDEPATH += $$PWD/../../Test/Example/include DEPENDPATH += $$PWD/../../Test/Example/include
Any ideas? Is this a bug in the Qt Creator?
That might indeed be a bug.
Which version of Qt Creator are you using ?
I am using Qt Creator 4.0.3.
Then I'd recommend taking a look at the bug report system to see if it's something known.
