Error building empty project

  • Hi,

    In order to solve another isue, i had try to build an empty QT console project ( Not even a single line added, regular .pro file).
    I had recived the next error:

    13:25:57: Running steps for project test1Hello...
    13:25:57: Configuration unchanged, skipping qmake step.
    13:25:57: Starting: "C:\Qt\Qt5.7.0\Tools\QtCreator\bin\jom.exe"

    Error while building/deploying project test1Hello (kit: Desktop Qt 5.7.0 MSVC2013 64bit)
    When executing step "Make"
    13:25:58: Elapsed time: 00:00.

    This is my .pro file:

    QT += core
    QT -= gui

    CONFIG += c++11

    TARGET = test1Hello
    CONFIG += console
    CONFIG -= app_bundle

    TEMPLATE = app

    SOURCES += main.cpp

    And this is the main.cpp file:

    #include <QCoreApplication>

    int main(int argc, char *argv[])
    QCoreApplication a(argc, argv);

    return a.exec();


    Probably this is something wrong with ENV?!

    What do i miss here



  • I recieve the same Error when trying to build a Qt example code on windows,

    I probably missing something here!!

    Help will be most appriciated!!



  • Hi, if you open Visual Studio 2013 and try to build an empty C++ project, does it fail the same way?

    Also you can try to run Maintenance Tool and install the 32-bit MSVC2013 package, and build an empty project with that and see if it fails the same way.
