Error while building/deploying project test (kit: Desktop Qt 5.8.0 MSVC2015_64bit) When executing step "qmake"

  • Hello,
    I am getting this error and i dont know how to fix it.
    I saw that one way to fix it is to use the online installer, but i can't because it always gets stcuk at 99%.
    Can anyone help please?
    My operating sistem is Windows 7 64-Bit.

    It seems that it dont detect vs2005.

    When you downloaded visual studio and ran installer. ( from microsoft site)
    Are you 100% sure u check on the c++ part ?
    Also, can you start visual studio IDE and check it it seems happy for c++ ?

  • @mrjj I haven't even installed visual studio.

  • @mrjj Which version should I install?

    Ahh, its a classic :)

    Just use vs 2015. (2017 also works but not always auto detected)

    I didnt test but 2017 should Just work with Qt5.8.

    Note. Make sure to say Yes to the c++ part in the installer. For reasons only
    known to god, its not ON pr default.

    Also, if you not like MUST have vs studio 2015 , then
    includes it all and just works out of the box. Debugger and all.
    ( and then u can uninstall the Qt vs2015 version and dont have to install vs 2015. ( biiig install)

  • @mrjj Thank you very much!
