QtCreator 4.4 doesn't see Auto-detected Kits

  • I installed QtCreator 4.4.0 side-by-side with 4.3.1, which came with Qt 5.9.1. QtCreator 4.4.0 did pick-up manual kits, but it doesn't see auto-generated ones that were created when Qt 5.9.1 was installed.

    What can I do to address this problem?

    Thanks in advance,

    You should also give the name of the platform you are running on..

  • The problem appears on Windows (Win10) and Linux (Ubuntu) platforms.
    In case it's relevant, the install paths are:
    "C:\Qt\Qt5.9.1\Tools\QtCreator" (this is 4.3.1)
    "~/Qt5.9.1/Tools/QtCreator" (this is 4.3.1)

    @alik_co: This problem is well known and happens regularly to me.

    There has been some suggestions recently to allow multiple Creator installations with the MaintenanceTool which will pick up these settings automatic.

    Till then you can only add these Qt versions manually to 4.4 (with all the consequences resulting from this).

    Or you drop 4.3 and install 4.4 via MaintenanceTool.

  • @aha_1980 Thanks!
