    Qt 5.7.1,
    Windows 10

    you are using mingw compiler for building an android project?!
    Check your Android QtCreator settings. Escpeciall the NDK path.
    Also delete the .pro.user file (next to your .pro file) and restart QtCreator. Rerun qmake.

    Tested your suggestion, did not work.

    I have the path correctly set up to the Apache ant,Android sdk, Android ndk & the java f folder:

    In the build & run projects it is set up like this:

    qmake: qmake.exe -spec android-g++ "CONFIG+=debug" "CONFIG+=qml_debug"
    Make: mingw32-make.exe in D:\Skrivbord\Project\build-Test-Android_for_armeabi_v7a_GCC_4_9_....
    Make install
    Build Android APK
