"There is no disk in the drive" error running jom.exe

  • Hello,

    I'm trying to build Qt 5.9.0 from source in C:\qt-everywhere-enterprise-src-5.9.0. After the configure step I wanted to use jom to build the files. I downloaded jom-1.1.2.zip from the Qt site and unpacked the files in a directory (e.g. C:\jom). I then executed jom.exe from in the build directory and I received the following error:

    There is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive E:

    I repeated this by navigating to the jom directory (C:\jom) and executing jom.exe and I received the same error.

    Looks like jom has some dependencies that need to be in the same directory. Does anyone know what they are? Also, they should be included in the .zip file.

    Hi and welcome to devnet,

    AFAIK, you don't need to download jom if you already have Qt Creator installed. You should use that one.

  • Thanks, that's what I ended up doing. I just thought if they're going to provide jom as a stand-alone application it should have all the required dependencies packaged with it. Or, some instructions on what the dependencies are.

    I don't think it's a dependency issue but the error is indeed surprising...
