Installation of Qt VS Tools fails
I'm new to Qt and just trying to integrate Qt 5.8 in vs 2017.
Thus I installed the corresponding addin: http://download.qt.io/development_releases/vsaddin/qt-vsaddin-msvc2017-2.1.1-beta-10.03.2017.vsix
Unfortunately, adding the Qt version to vs 2017 (in VS menue QT VS Tools -> QT Options -> Add New QT Version) does not work, since there is no msvc compiler. In my QT installation folder is only the subfolder \mingw53_32. However, the mingw does not work with vs 2017.
Any hint, how to solve this problem?
Hi and welcome to devnet,
As silly as it may sound: install Qt for Visual Studio.
And one more thing: install the C++ component when installing Visual Studio, they are not selected by default.
IMPORTANT You can use Qt for VS 2015 with VS2017. It's the first version of Visual Studio that is compatible with an older version but it only applies to VS 2015 nothing earlier.
Thanks a lot! Sometimes it's really easy ;-)
