Program not building

  • I am trying to build heartrate program from the examples of QT software directory but the compile output shows the following errors;
    {Error while building/deploying project heartlistener (kit: Desktop Qt 5.8.0 MSVC2015_64bit)
    When executing step "qmake"}

    and the general messages give a message like so:
    {Running Windows Runtime device detection.
    No winrtrunner.exe found.
    Could not find qmake spec 'default'.
    Error while parsing file C:\Qt\Qt5.8.0\Examples\Qt-5.8\bluetooth\heartlistener\ Giving up.}

    Please help as to what the problem and its solution would be.
    The QT version that I am using is 5.5 for windows 10 and i am confused between any other tools that I have to have on my system like WinRT or visual studio 2015.I dont have any tools as such inbstalled.

  • Hi, and welcome to the forum.

    Just to make that clear: Your host is Windows 10 Desktop 64bit and your target is Windows RT, right? If so, this:

    Desktop Qt 5.8.0 MSVC2015_64bit

    doesn't look good. It means that you're currently trying to build for a Windows Desktop target. Also it says Qt 5.8.0, while you said

    The QT version that I am using is 5.5
