Qt 5.8 install error



  • Hi,
    I'm trying to install Qt 5.8 MSVC 2013 32-bit libraries via MaintanceTool.exe (Qt 5.7 MSVC 2013 32bit already installed on my PC).

    I restarted computer and disabled Avast antivirus.

    When launching MaintenanceTool.exe i get:
    Corrupt installation
    Your installation seems to be corrupted. Please consider re-installing from scratch.7
    (I can't see any reason why my installation is corrupted - everything works)

    During installation I get error:

    Error during installation process (qt.58.win32_msvc2013): Execution failed(Unexpected exit code: 1): "C:\Qt/Tools/QtCreator\bin\sdktool.exe addKit --id qt.58.win32.win32_msvc2013_kit --name Desktop Qt %{Qt:Version} MSVC2013 32bit --Ctoolchain x86-windows-msvc2013-pe-32bit --Cxxtoolchain x86-windows-msvc2013-pe-32bit --qt qt.58.win32_msvc2013 --debuggerengine 4 --devicetype Desktop"

    Is there anything I can do to install Qt 5.8 on my computer?

    How about clean install ? Uninstall 5.7 and install 5.8 fresh ?



  • Yes, I know, but I can't find any reason why my installation should be broken. I installed Qt 5.7 and did nothing to it. But of course, if there is no other way...



  • Hi. I get same error when trying to install Qt 5.8 MSVC 2013 64-bit. Uninstall 5.7 and install 5.8 fresh didn't work for me.

    Any idea what's wrong? MaintenanceTool.exe works fine in my case.
