Unable to open CMake Wizard



  • Hi All,

    I am trying to open a Cmake Project. As I try to open CMakeLists.txt file the qt creator lands up in the project configuration page instead of opening CMake Generator Wizard.!

    It never opens the CMake Generator Wizard. Also each time when I open the CMakeLists.txt it generates the directory and file structure every time. This is really annoying and my project is greater than > 2GB.

    Can somebody please help me.

    Thanks, in advance.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    Which version of Qt Creator are you using ? Also which version of CMake ?

    Out of curiosity, what makes your project larger than 2 gigabytes ?



  • Thanks for the reply SGaist.

    I am using Qt 5.7

    Qt Creator 4.2.0 (4.2.0)
    Based on Qt 5.7.1 (GCC 4.9.1 20140922 (Red Hat 4.9.1-10), 64 bit)
    Built on Dec 9 2016 12:18:01

    And the CMake Verison is
    cmake version 3.5.2

    Project has lot of submodules and each of them having their own project configuration. My requirement is to build the entire project with the submodules.

    Thanks again.

    The CMake handling has be refactored a lot in 4.2 and it's usage is not the same.

    Did you already saw the new CMake Qt Creator documentation ?



  • Oh!.. Okay.Now I get it.

    Thanks for the info SGaist.
