Qt 5.8 with MS Visual C++ 2015 Build Tools
satysin last edited by kshegunov
Rather than install the full Visual Studio 2015 Community package to use Qt 5.8 with MSVC2015 I was hoping to use the Visual C++ 2015 Build Tools (http://landinghub.visualstudio.com/visual-cpp-build-tools) however I am having an error with this configuration.
I do not know if the issue is related to Qt [Creator?] and how it detects MSVC or a difference in how the Visual C++ 2015 Build Tools are installed compared to Visual Studio proper.
The issue seems to be the location of the UCRT now used by Microsoft. I can manually resolve this by adding the UCRT location to my .pro with a LIBS += -L"location\to\ucrt" however this is not as clean as I would like considering when using Visual Studio this is not required.
Is anyone here using Qt with Visual C++ 2015 Build Tools and if so have you encountered this issue?
Note: I originally posted this in General and Desktop but so far no luck. I am hoping somebody here can help who might not check the other forums. Original post is at https://forum.qt.io/topic/75608/qt-5-8-with-ms-visual-c-2015-build-tools
