How to download qt-opensource-windows-x86-android-5.9

  • Hi,

    According to Qt 5.9 Release plan, it should be ready for downloading now.
    I have the *qt-opensource-windows-x86-android-5.8.0* file with the size of 1.3 GB. Now it's July the Thirteen and if I want to have *qt-opensource-windows-x86-android-5.9* —not through the online installer but an offline source— where to download it from please?

  • @tomy I'm not sure but qt-opensource-windows-x86-5.9.0.exe in may include all the binaries and the android part, too. I think so because there are no packages for different compiler binaries at all in 5.9 directory, just one package for Windows which is much larger than 5.8 packages.

  • Good deduction, thanks.
    So I go for qt-opensource-windows-x86-5.9.0.exe which is 2.3 GB with the hope of being able to code for Android apps and Windows as well.

    @tomy Why don't you just use online installer?
    Then you will have the Qt Maintenance Tool which you can use to update your installation and to add/remove Qt versions.

  • @tomy Tested: it has all binaries and lets you select. It seems to be the same installer application than online installer but with offline Qt packages.

    keep in mind, if you download the Offline-Installer than you actually download all parts of qt5.9 and you only select which one should be unpacked/installed, where as by the online installer you actually only download the packages you want.

    So keep that in mind, when you choose your installer to download.

  • I installed Qt 5.9 by online installer with these contains.

    I had an app written by myself, it's apparently corrupted and I think it was because of the collision of some programs on my Windows machine. If I have the offline installer I can uninstall and reinstall it easily.
    I also have the Qt Installer Framework Opensource 2.0.1 tool for its purpose.
