Error with Windows?

  • I am taking a course in CS and downloaded their first assignment, which we are using to check if out Qt works. I have a windows computer, and am getting the error below:

    Running Windows Runtime device detection.
    No winrtrunner.exe found.
    Cannot read C:/Users/Nicola/OD/Homework/CS106X/build-simple-project-Desktop_Qt_5_7_1_MinGW_32bit2-Debug/.qmake.cache: No such file or directory

    I reinstalled Java and have the SE Developer Kit 8 update 111. What do I need to do?


  • @nkubz
    as I know, Qt is a C++ framework, so I think it is not related to Java environment

    and it seems to be the problem of windows run time environment, I think you can read Qt for WinRT

    @nkubz said in Error with Windows?:

    No winrtrunner.exe found.

    Are you sure you are using the right Qt version (for WinRT)? Since you are using mingw as a compiler i guess thats already your problem.
    Do you use QtCreator for building? If yes, then check the build configuration to use the correct Qt version.

  • Moved to "General and Desktop".

    @nkubz does the folder and file exist?
    Try cleaning the build and running qmake again.

    As @raven-worx says, MinGW and WinRT do not mix. If you want WinRT (or UWP as it is also known as) you need to have MicroSoft Visual Studio on the machine.
