QT windows installation error

  • I installed QT on Windows as per what was said in the instruction, but when I created a QT Widget application I am getting the following error :

    Running Windows Runtime device detection.
    No winrtrunner.exe found.
    Project ERROR: Cannot run compiler 'cl'. Maybe you forgot to setup the environment?

    Also, in my Qt creator project directory I cannot see anything apart from my .pro file.
    So what should I do to remove this error?

    Qt installed : 5.9.1
    IDE : Qt Creator.

    In my Qt folder which is installed when I see the Tools folder it just has QtCreator folder and no compiler folder. Is it wrong

    what Qt ? for visual studio or for mingw?

  • @Arqam said in QT windows installation error:

    No winrtrunner.exe found.

    from personal experience I would guess you're running Win 10 and msvc-Compiler 2015 or 2017. right?

    you'll need to link against the correct windows sdk package to build successfully.

  • @J.Hilk We need to link what to correct windows sdk package. I am new to windows, I am trying to change the value of Tools > Options > Kits to MinGW that I installed but its not giving any result.

    Did you install visual studio from Microsoft site ?

  • @mrjj Is it necessary to install visual studio to run the Qt program or can we do with just MinGW ?

    Mingw will be just fine.
