Windows 10 Oracle driver compile problem

  • Hi.
    I'm working on an application for my theses using qt and oracle database and I'm having trouble compiling the oci driver if anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated( I was also using How to build Oracle driver - Windows with MinGW-ERROR as a guide).
    The are the following things I've installed on a Windows 10 x64:

    • oracle database 11g release 2

    • qt (qt 5.8 and 5.9)

    • vs 2013.

    I've modified the file according to How to run project OCI (changed QMAKE_USE += oci to QMAKE_LFLAGS += oci.lib).
    Everything works without any problems until I have to run the nmake command or mingw32-make command.
    The is what I typed in the console (I would like to mention i ran Qt 5.8 for Desktop (MSVC 2013 32 bit) for msvc and ...(MinGW 5.3.0 32 bit) for mingw):

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\VC (vcvarsall.bat - needed for msvc to recognize nmake)
    set INCLUDE=%INCLUDE%;C:\oracle\product\11.2.0\client_1\oci\include
    set LIB=%LIB%;C:\oracle\product\11.2.0\client_1\oci\lib\msvc
    cd D:\Programs\Installed\Qt\5.8\Src\qtbase\src\plugins\sqldrivers\oci
    nmake or mingw32-make

    This is everything i typed in the console (trying to compile the driver with mingw):

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    You can't mix and match compilers like that. Which version of Qt are you building for ? What compiler was used to build your OCI libraries ?

  • @SGaist
    Thank you for the rely(I'm a beginner at this, please bear with me).

    I want to use msvc ( tried mingw but after some research i found that qt doesn't support it under windows).
    The version i'm building for is 5.8 (from what i noticed 5.9 is 64 bit only for vs 2013).
    For building i used Qt 5.8 32-bit for Desktop (MSVC 2013) with vcvarsall.bat.
    If i launch it from the vs console it doesn't recognize qmake.

    This is everything i did in the console.

    Setting up environment for Qt usage...
    Remember to call vcvarsall.bat to complete environment setup!

    I don't understand why the help command gets "activated", is moc or nmake confused or something?

  • Lifetime Qt Champion

    The Qt project has provided pre-built packages for MinGW for years.

    Then again, the same question: what compiler was used to build the Oracle libraries ?

  • @SGaist

    None(i mean i didn't build them). I installed them(i got the The only time i tried to compile anything was when i tried to do it for the oci driver and i use msvc from Qt 5.8 32-bit for Desktop (MSVC 2013) console with vcvarsall.bat to recognize nmake command (the vs console doesn't recognize qmake and i don't know how to make it to do it).

  • Moderators

    @darius93 "the vs console doesn't recognize qmake" - you can just use absolute path to qmake.exe
    What @SGaist is telling you is: you have to use exact same compiler for both the library and your app. With same I mean even same version. That means: if the Oracle library was build with, let's say, MSVC2015 then you cannot use it with MSVC2013. You need to find out which compiler was used to build Oracle library.

  • I've solved the problem (thank you to everyone who replied it helped a lot).
    This is everything i did:

    • installed oracle instant client 11g
    • installed qt (5.8)
    • removed vs 2013 if you installed it (the driver can't be build with 2013, same thing applies to mingw under windows)
    • installed vs 2015
    • installed windows sdk (just the debugger).

    After this i modified the (changed QMAKE_USE += oci to QMAKE_LFLAGS += oci.lib) - the location of the file is (in my case) D:\Programs\Installed\Qt\5.8\Src\qtbase\src\plugins\sqldrivers\oci.
    Then i run Qt 5.8 32-bit for Desktop (MSVC 2015) and i run in it vcvarsall.bat (the location of the file is where you installed vs in my case C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\VC).

    set INCLUDE=%INCLUDE%;C:\oracle\product\11.2.0\client_1\oci\include //location of oracle include file oci.h
    set LIB=%LIB%;C:\oracle\product\11.2.0\client_1\oci\lib\msvc  // location of lib files
    cd D:\Programs\Installed\Qt\5.8\Src\qtbase\src\plugins\sqldrivers\oci  // location of my file

    After everything compiled you should find a plugins folder in qt version/src/qtbase (my case - D:\Programs\Installed\Qt\5.8\Src\qtbase). Copy the dlls and the debugger where you compiler is located(the one you used to compile the driver) and you are done.

    Happy programming.
