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 ?
    https://doc.qt.io/qt-4.8/supported-platforms.html

    Thanks for your help,

    Sandra.

    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

    Hi,

    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
