Porting Desktop app to Windows uinversal app

  • The code does not compile when using webenginewidgets,
    this is an application built using widgets (QDialog , the old way :-) )

    C:/Qt/5.7/winrt_armv7_msvc2015/bin/winrtrunner.exe --list-devices
    Found 2 Windows Runtime devices.
    Project ERROR: Unknown module(s) in QT: webenginewidgets

    The code builds on Windows10 and Ubuntu16.04.1

    building for Windows universal app (windows 10 phone), do I need to install something extra to get this to work or WebEngineWidget is not supported?


  • Hi! From Qt WebEngine Platform Notes:

    Qt WebEngine does try to support all Supported Platforms of Qt. However, due to different requirements of Chromium this is not always possible. Known limitations are:

    • Qt WebEngine currently supports only Windows, Linux, and OS X.
    • On Windows, Qt WebEngine only supports Windows Vista or newer as target platform. Due to use of newer API in Chromium, Windows XP is not supported. WinRT is not supported, either.

  • Thank you. I will look for an alternative.

  • @AsifBahrainwala Here's the alternative: Qt WebView :-)
