Installer Error

  • I am running window 7 with minGW build kit. I have gone through the installer tutorial and keep getting the error of "binarycreator is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file". I have checked and it is in the system "path" as "C:\Qt\QtIFW2.0.3\bin". Any ideas?

  • @xopherira It is probably not in PATH. You should explicitly call binary creator using full path, or add that directory to PATH env variable.

  • I believe that is what I did. Steps I took, Control Panel-Advanced sytem settings-Environment variables-added C:\Qt\QtIFW2.0.3\bin to PATH. I still get the error.

    Double check that the environment of your project in Qt Creator was also update. See the Project panel for that.

  • Thanks, where do i need to specifically? The rest of the build and setup process seems to work fine.

    Well, in the Project panel. Check both the Build and Run part for the environment variables.

  • @SGaist Sorry for the not getting back to this earlier, finished up another project. I added under project and get same error, is there some nuance that i might be missing?

  • This is what PATH looks like under QT project. C:\Qt\Qt5.6.0\5.6\mingw49_32\bin;C:\Qt\Qt5.6.0\Tools\mingw492_32\bin;C:\ProgramData\Oracle\Java\javapath;%CommonProgramFiles%\Microsoft Shared\Windows Live;C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\iCLS Client;C:\Program Files\Intel\iCLS Client;C:\Windows\system32;C:\Windows;C:\Windows\System32\Wbem;C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0;C:\Program Files\Intel\WiFi\bin;C:\Program Files\Common Files\Intel\WirelessCommon;C:\Program Files\Intel\Intel(R) Management Engine Components\DAL;C:\Program Files\Intel\Intel(R) Management Engine Components\IPT;C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\Intel(R) Management Engine Components\DAL;C:\Program Files (x86)\Intel\Intel(R) Management Engine Components\IPT;C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Lenovo;C:\ProgramData\Lenovo\ReadyApps;C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\Client Access\Emulator;C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\Client Access\Shared;C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\Client Access;C:\Program Files (x86)\Shoreline Communications\ShoreWare Client;C:\Program Files (x86)\Shoreline Communications\ShoreWare Client\win64;C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\120\Tools\Binn;C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\130\Tools\Binn;C:\Program Files (x86)\MySQL\MySQL Fabric 1.5 & MySQL Utilities 1.5;C:\Program Files (x86)\MySQL\MySQL Fabric 1.5 & MySQL Utilities 1.5\Doctrine extensions for PHP;C:\Anaconda3;C:\Anaconda3\Scripts;C:\Anaconda3\Library\bin;C:\Program Files\Git\cmd;C:\Program Files (x86)\ShoreTel\Contact Center\Agent\Bin;C:\Qt\QtIFW2.0.3\bin;C:\MinGW\bin;C:\MinGW\msys\1.0\bin;C:\Qt\Qt5.6.0\5.6\mingw49_32\bin;C:\Qt\QtIFW2.0.3\bin;

    On the Run part ?

  • Its under both run and build, is this incorrect?

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    Where's that tutorial you are following exactly ?

  • Here is the link to youtube web tutorial for setting up installer.

  • @xopherira I believe you have already solved this problem. But this reply is for someone else who has same problem.

    The answer is;
    You have to set the system path not user path. After your change have to close the existing command window and open a new one.
