GUI development using Qt on Windows

  • Getting started with QT for GUI application development on Windows.

    Downloaded and installed Qt 5.7.

    Created a GUI project, tried compiling and got this error.
    Error while building/deploying project FirstQtApp (kit: Desktop Qt 5.7.0 MSVC2015 32bit)
    When executing step "qmake"

    Do I need to install any other software packages before compiling and what is the configuration to be made?

    Please help me resolve this.


  • Hi also you need Visual Studio 2015 you can download it here

  • Hi,

    I have it already installed.

    I was wondering if there is any configuration required to make it work? And if there are any other pre-requisite tools?

  • Yes, also when you install Visual Studio 2015, you need to select "Custom installation" and then choose C++.
    If you have already installed it, you can choose File New Project C++ to make it install the C++ components for you.
