Qt installer stuck

  • I'm running the Qt Open Source installer on Windows 7.

    It's at 46% during the "Retrieving meta information from remote repository" step. It quickly got there and got stuck there 55 minutes already.

    I tried restarting the installer and this time it got stuck again at the same step, but at 64%.

    Any ideas?


    • The installer name is qt-unified-windows-x86-2.0.3-1-online.exe
    • I believe the Qt version it's going to install is Qt 5.7, as that's the latest Qt version as of now
    • I'm going to try the offline installer now

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    You might be hitting a faulty mirror. You can use the QtSdkRepoChooser to modify that.

    Hope it helps

  • Thanks. For now I found it easier to solve my problem by using an offline installer, which worked fine. But I'll keep your advice in mind for the future.
