Build Qt 4.8.7 on Windows 10: -platform ?
Hi everyone !
I am trying to build Qt 4.8.7 on Windows 10
When I run configure, I get the following error: "Qt: Untested Windows version 6.2 detected! Unable to detect the platform from environment. Use -platform command lineargument or set the QMAKESPEC environment variable and run configure again"
I looked on this page to see what should I put as "platform", it seems like Windows 10 isn't supported, is it? If it is, what value should I use as platform ?
Thanks for your help,
Your link does not work. If the informationis the same as in http://doc.qt.io/qt-4.8/supported-platforms.html
My guess it is not really update or possibly they are still using the older OS environment for testing to ensure minimum compatibility. I do not see a reason why it should not work on Windows 10.
I am working qith Qt 5.4 and get the information that an untested Windows 10 has been detected. However, everything works fine.
Concerning your problem I am not sure how to handle this.
What is the compiler suite you are using?
Thanks, I updated the link.
I'm using Microsoft Visual Studio 2013
Indeed I managed to build Qt 5.9 but I need an older version of Qt
Windows 10 has been released after Qt 4.8.7 which is also the last of the Qt 4 series which has reach EOL. You'll have to tweak it a bit for the auto detection to work otherwise follow the recommandation and tell configure that you want to use the VS2013 mkspec.
Thank's, I'll try with that
